• A practical understanding of all the fundamental field treating
• A practical understanding of all the fundamental field treating facilities: what they are, why they are needed, how they work • The properties and behavior of crude oil and natural gas that govern production operations • Field processes for treating and conditioning full well stream production for sales or final disposition • The basics of oilfield corrosion prevention, detection, and treatment • Internal workings of separators, pumps, compressors, valves, dehydrators, acid gas treatment towers, and other treating equipment • A wide range of produced fluid measurement and metering devices • A description of treating equipment whether located on the surface, offshore platform, or sea floor
• Properties of fluids at surface • Flowlines, piping, gathering systems; solids and liquid limits • Oil – water- gas – solids – contaminants • Separation and treatment • 2-3 phase separators, free water knockouts, centrifugal, filter • Storage tanks, gun barrels, pressure/vacuum relief, flame arrestors • Stabilizers • Foams, emulsions, paraffins, asphaltenes, hydrates, salts • Dehydrators • Water treaters: SP packs, plate interceptors, gas floatation, coalescers, hydrocyclones, membranes • Acid gas treatment: coatings, closed system, chemicals, solvents, conversion; stress cracking • Valves: all types; regulators • Pumps/Compressors: centrifugal, positive displacement, rotary, reciprocating, ejectors • Metering: orifice, head, turbine, and others • Corrosion/Scales: inhibition and treatment
Who Should Attend ?
All field, service, support, and supervisory personnel having interaction with Facilities Engineers and desiring to gain an awareness level understanding of the field processing of production fluids
