Energy and Capacity Optimization in Gas Processing Plants
|Event Date/Time: Feb 03, 2011||End Date/Time: Feb 04, 2011|
This 2-day course will provide participants with tools to identify, prioritize, and remedy wasted energy primarily in gas processing facilities, with an emphasis on inefficient and under utilized compressors, engines, refrigerant plants, cooling systems, turbines, and steam plants. The session will benefit field operations personnel with the ongoing optimization of existing systems, and will assist project engineers and technologists with cost-benefit analyses relating to capital and operating costs for capital budgets along with the selection of electric versus gas driven equipment.
*Participants should bring a laptop to the course if possible â€“ as some workgroup examples will consist of running handout software.*
A complete set of course materials and a light lunch are included.
