Natural Gas Processing - Refrigeration and Fractionation
|Event Date/Time: Feb 10, 2011|
This 1-day course is designed to familiarize technical professionals with the design and operation of propane refrigeration loops used in typical NGL recovery and/or dewpoint control facilities, with an emphasis on design, troubleshooting and performance optimization. The principles of natural gas liquids fractionation and cryogenic expander operation are briefly discussed, including LNG and LPG operations and power recovery from LNG import terminals.
A complete set of course materials and lunch is included in this course.
*Participants should bring a laptop to the course if possible â€“ as some workgroup examples will consist of running handout software.*
