Natural Gas Compression Using Reciprocating Compressors
|Event Date/Time: Feb 07, 2011||End Date/Time: Feb 08, 2011|
This 2-day course is designed to familiarize technical professionals with the design and operation of gas compression equipment, with a majority of the seminar focusing on reciprocating units used in typical field compression applications. The second day deals with advanced operation, performance monitoring, optimization, and troubleshooting.
*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 lunch is included in this course.
