Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Online Training Course? 

This PetroKnowledge LNG Technology and Production online training course is designed for participants requiring moderate technical coverage coupled with information on LNG Technologies and Production and all parts of the LNG Value Chain.

The online training course covers technical LNG basics, facility operation topics, technical production and design. Selected Case Studies, exercises and syndicates are used throughout the course that reinforces the main topics of LNG trade and technology. In-house versions are available with either increased technical and operational emphasis or increased project and development emphasis.

This online training course will highlight:

  • What is LNG, why it is produced, and what is the current status of the industry
  • LNG facilities world-wide
  • The LNG chain and impact of contractual issues on LNG plant design and operation; LNG pricing
  • Large and Small-scale LNG Project costs, feasibility, development, and issues
  • Some technical fundamentals of gas processing, such as vapour pressure, multi-component mixtures, thermodynamics, and cryogenics
  • Technologies used in the production of LNG for base-load and small-scale production, issues relating to technology selection, and operation
  • LNG Bunkering
  • Main equipment used in the production of LNG: heat exchangers, compressors and drivers used for LNG, pumps, and turbo expanders
