Natural Gas

Training Courses & Seminars

The main feature that has served to popularize natural gas as todays fuel of choice is the lower greenhouse gas emissions when compared to other fossil fuels.  Natural gas’s low density has impeded its commercial use as it was more costly to contain and transport than crude oil. Prior to the development of liquefied natural gas (LNG) technology, the transportation of natural gas was limited to movements that could be served by pipeline. Gas was unable to utilise that mainstay of international oil trade – marine transportation. This has now changed not least by the IMO’s ruling that lowered the Sulphur content of bunker fuels with effect January 2020. The development of LNG has not only changed the energy landscape of the world, but also is serving to delay the increase in global temperatures. With improvements in technology and costs, natural gas is rapidly becoming an internationally traded commodity. Natural gas is found in deep underground rock formations or associated with other hydrocarbon reservoirs in coal beds and as methane clathrates. In petroleum production associated natural gas is sometimes burnt as flare gas. Before natural gas can be used as a fuel it must be processed to meet the specifications of marketable natural gas.

PetroKnowledge training courses provide a systematic approach to understanding how natural gas is dehydrated, purified and brought to pipeline specification by key processes including Gas Conditioning and Processing that covers the concepts and techniques necessary to design, specify and manage natural gas field production facilities, and finally amine sweetening and sulphur recovery technologies all being a central feature for natural gas treating as well as Floating Liquefied Natural Gas, LNG Plant Safety, Loading Master for Oil, LNG Gas and Petrochemical Terminals, Flow Measurement and Custody Transfer, Fluid Catalytic Cracking in Petroleum Refineries, Liquefied Natural & Petroleum Gas Cargo Operations and Re-liquefaction, Managing the Bunkering and Use of LNG Fuel on Ships, Petrochemicals Markets and Processes, PVT (Pressure-Volume-Temperature) Properties of Reservoir Fluids, The Olefins and Polyolefins Business, Markets and Technologies. Aromatics, Understanding the Dynamics of the LNG Industry, FLNG Design and Technology, FPSO/FLNG E&I Design Installation and Operation, Fundamentals of LNG, Gas Chromatography and Troubleshooting for the Oil & Gas Industry, Gas Explosion and Other Hazards of LNG Facilities, Hydrocarbon Fiscal Flow Metering & Understanding LNG Terminals & Terminal Operations

A robust approach is used for identifying, screening, selecting and defining the optimal LNG Import Terminal solution based on Safety. Technical, Commercial and Project Execution factors, operational and legal issues involved in LNG transportation and Shipping business and the key technical challenges and risks associated in the FLNG operation and maintenance of its high-level safety and security are fully examined.
