Design of Gas Gathering Lines - PEICE
|Event Date/Time: Nov 26, 2009||End Date/Time: Nov 26, 2009|
This one-day course is designed for technical professionals who have little or no experience with the design of gas gathering lines and plant inlet separation. Equations for pressure drop estimation are reviewed, with emphasis on understanding the assumptions involved in some of the simplifications in the equations. Methods for preventing the formation of hydrates and the control of internal pipe corrosion are covered in detail, with emphasis on the effect of sour gas in this regard. Pipe design parameters, such as grade, required wall thickness and optimum diameter are explained. The design of line looping for increasing throughput is covered. The plant inlet separator is the terminal point of the gathering system. Since most gas gathering systems operate under two-phase flow conditions, special design considerations for the separator are explained and an example design calculation is included. A comprehensive set of notes is provided.
