This short course explores the properties of produced fluid and its evolution from reservoir to production facilities. The impact and methods of wax, hydrate, asphaltines control will be examined. Basic downstream processing plant operation, separation and chemical treatment will also be introduced. The course is delivered with the support of practising engineers and leading consultants in the field.
On successful completion of the course, you will be able to:
- Demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge of current production systems and chemistry.
- Competently design flow assurance transportation systems for production chemistry related issues.
- Interface with other oil/gas or related industry disciplines in a design or operating environment.
