Fundamentals Of Oil & Gas Production And Processing




This course has been designed to cover the major technical aspects of oil and gas production and processing systems. It is aimed at providing participants with the knowledge and tools to determine the main properties of crude oil, natural gas, and the overall production and processing system all the way from the wellhead to the delivery of a specific product.


The participants will learn how to select and evaluate the processes and equipment used to meet fluid specifications. The principles for the design of oil and gas production and processing facilities will be covered.
