Why Choose this Training Course?
Oil wells generally, produce a mixture of hydrocarbon oil, water, gas, and even sand or solid materiel with dissolved minerals usually including a large amount of salt & other gases like hydrogen sulfide (H2S); and solids, including sand from the reservoir, dirt, scale, and corrosion products from the tubing.
Foreign material, such as water and sand must be separated from the oil and gas before they can be sold. This process is known as Crude Oil Treating.
The purpose of Crude Oil treatment is to separate, remove, or transform these various components to make the liquid hydrocarbons (Crude Oil) ready for sales & send to refiners.
This PetroKnowledge training course provides an overview of all the theories and technologies involved in crude oil treatment, starting with brief about Petroleum Crude Formation, Production, phase separation process, emulsion theory formation, crude oil desalting, stabilization and the mechanism through the technology to destabilize and separate water from oil in addition to crude oil storage and loading facilities.
Due to environmental regulations, the produced water must also be treated. This PetroKnowledge training course will provide a brief of the processes & operational conditions needed to achieve the required specifications for the produced water.
Upon successful completion of this PetroKnowledge training course, participants will gain knowledge & full understanding of crude oil treatment from A to Z (formation till loading to refiners) with extensive focus in Oil Treatment Operation.
This PetroKnowledge training course will feature:
- Crude Oil Formation, accumulation & Production
- Crude Oil Composition & Characteristics
- Phase Separation Process (Two & Three-Phase Separation)
- Emulsion Formation & Treatment
- Crude Oil Dehydration
- Crude Oil Desalting
- Crude Oil Stabilization & Sweetening
- Crude Oil Storage, Loading & Other Field Facilities
- Produced Water Treatment & Disposal
