A variety of dates from September to December 2014 are available for you to choose for this course.
This course is ideal for facilities engineers, process engineers, operations personnel, field supervisors and others that select, design, install, evaluate or operate gas processing plants and related facilities.
Both hand-methods and computer-aided analysis are used to examine sensitivities of technical decisions. To enhance the learning process, about 30 problems will be assigned, reviewed and discussed throughout the course.
