G-2 is a versatile overview of the gas conditioning and processing industry. This course is designed for a broad audience and is engaging and interactive, utilizing basic technical exercises and terminology to communicate key learning points. This course does not cover the technology and engineering principles in depth, and is only recommended for those needing an overview of the industry and common processes and equipment used.
"Good interaction between trainer and class, lots of real world examples (not too theoretical)." - Product Engineer, The Netherlands
"I learned a lot of basics about gas in this course. This is exactly what I wanted to get out of it." - Commercial Development, United States
As a wide ranging overview, it is suitable for interested parties, such as geologists, reservoir engineers, procurement professionals, and sales or business development staff; related specialists like environmental staff, operational staff, and shift foremen; those new to the industry, such as entry-level (1-2 year) engineers; or anyone interested in a general, technically-oriented overview of the gas processing industry.
