Gas Conditioning and Processing: Mastering the Process Engineering Requirements

Process simulation has become an essential tool for operators and engineering firms in the oil & gas industry. Simulators can better support process design, debottlenecking and optimization when used to their full potential. This learning opportunity will provide process engineers with an ideal setting to familiarize themselves with the most widely used simulators in the industry (Unisim DesignTM and/or Aspen HYSYSTM). 

A number of computer modeling strategies will be reviewed as well as integration of the software to process engineering workflows in the Natural Gas Processing sector.

Course Philosophy

“Applied process engineering using process simulation models”.This course goes well beyond the mechanics of using simulation software to the application of engineering knowledge to address process requirements.

Course Description

Focus is on the practical application of simulation tools for natural gas processes. Incorporates use of other software tools and calculations to supplement what process simulators can provide.
