Through this Natural Gas Utilities training course, you will gain a comprehensive understanding of the diverse physical and chemical properties exhibited by natural gas components and their significance in the industry. Familiarize yourself with essential processes such as dehydration, acid gas removal (gas sweetening), hydrocarbon dew point control (HCDP control), LPG production, and NGL recovery and separation (fractionation).

For the smooth operation of these processes, certain utilities are indispensable. The most commonly employed utilities for heating purposes are steam, hot oil, and fired heaters. Nitrogen finds application in purging, while instrument air plays a vital role in operating all the valves involved in the various processes. 

This Energy Training Centre training course will highlight:

  • Overview about natural gas
  • Glycol and amine regeneration
  • Steam production and network
  • Instrument air
  • Nitrogen production and evaporating
  • Other utilities

By the end of this Natural Gas Utilities training course, participants will learn to:

  • Be aware of the troubleshooting of re-aeration towers
  • Calculate the amount of boiler blowdown
  • Troubleshot nitrogen production unit 
  • Troubleshoot air compressor and driers
  • Be aware about utilities optimization

This Natural Gas Utilities training course will use a thoughtful combination of lectures, structured discussion, roleplay, and exercises. 

  • Enhanced expertise in natural gas components and industry processes.
  • Improved troubleshooting skills for reaeration towers, boiler blowdown, nitrogen production, and air compressor/driers.
  • Utilities optimization for glycol, amine regeneration, steam, instrument air, and nitrogen production.
  • Increased awareness of safety protocols and compliance in handling natural gas components.
  • Potential cost savings through improved efficiency and resource management.
  • Comprehensive understanding of natural gas components and industry processes.
  • Proficiency in troubleshooting reaeration towers and nitrogen production units.
  • Optimization of utilities like glycol, steam, and instrument air for efficient operations.
  • Increased awareness of safety protocols in handling natural gas components.
