Course description

NGL Extraction Fundamentals for Facilities Engineers - FNG - Virtual, Blended Short Course

This short course is from the industry-standard Gas Conditioning and Process course (G-4), known globally as the Campbell Gas Course.

NGL Extraction is a key processing unit for any gas conditioning or processing facility. Whether for hydrocarbon dewpoint control (minimal NGL recovery), or for deep NGL extraction (C2+ recovery that can be achieved in turbo-expander plants), the NGL Extraction unit is the heart of the gas processing plant.

This short course details the processing technology options for hydrocarbon dewpoint control and deep NGL extraction, and discusses the considerations that are important to the most optimal process selection for a given field development. The course content will meet the needs of a facilities engineer that is supporting a hydrocarbon dewpoint facility, moderate NGL extraction plants, as well as those assigned to Gas Sub-cooled Process (GSP) or turbo-expander facilities. The key pieces of equipment will be covered, as well as the overall combined processing unit.

The self-paced online modules cover the following topics

  • NGL Extraction
  • Compact heat exchangers and fired heaters
  • Operation of Expansion Refrigeration Devices
  • Common Process Configurations for NGL Extraction
  • Types of Internals in Mass Transfer Columns.

Who should attend?

Production and processing personnel involved with natural gas and associated liquids, to acquaint or reacquaint themselves with gas conditioning and processing unit operations.

This course is for facilities engineers, process engineers, senior operations personnel, field supervisors, and engineers who select, design, install, evaluate, or operate gas processing plants and related facilities.

These short courses are ideal for mid-career professionals that have experience in the industry and have been transferred to a new role or assignment.

They are also ideal for new engineers that need to get up to speed quickly on the primary principles of gas processing with a deep dive on the issues of the short course topics.
