This course addresses the key subjects concerning the performance of gas production systems from the reservoir to the processing aspects: reservoir depletion, the near-well inflow, wellbore flow, surface gathering systems, field performance and an introduction to gas processing. It teaches the fundamentals, relevant technologies as well as engineering methods and explores computational tools for analysis. Moreover, the course addresses the behaviour of each individual component as well as the integrated production system.
Course Level: Foundation / Skill Instructor: Milan Stanko
