Covers natural gas process plant operations to achieve marketable products that meet desired product specifications. Emphasis is placed on offering plant operating personnel an improved understanding of the process techniques and equipment used. The plant systems covered include: gas feed receipt and condensate stabilization; dew-point control and refrigeration systems; treating, dehydration and mercury removal of hydrocarbons; NGL recovery and fractionation as well as nitrogen rejection units. This improved understanding of plant process operations and effective process plant surveillance techniques will lead to an increased ability to achieve optimum, economical operating performance. Provides classroom instruction and handouts.
