During the remaining lifetime of an oil or gas field, the application of economic methods in the treatment process is a prerequisite for ensuring compliance with specifications for the gas, oil, and water phase. This course bridges the gap between process technology and production chemistry. It includes aspects common to operational issues such as organic precipitates (asphaltenes and waxes), water treatment and quality for re-injection, causes of non-effective treatment plants, modern ways of optimising treatment units, corrosion prevention and rules of bacteria in oil and gas production, scale formation, as well as system surveillance strategies. Based on practical experience possible causes of failure in production operation are explained and discussed in detail.
An engineer, project manager, production chemist, or a member of field operational staff currently or potentially involved in natural gas or oil production and storage operations
Seeking an overview of sustainable improvements in the gas/oil production process
How we build your confidence
The course focuses on practical onsite experience. Case histories (video support) and practical examples will be subdivided into the following sections: System description, theoretical background, failure potentials, weak points and recommendation to mitigate possible negative production effects or to prevent further damage in the operational system.
