Course description

Fractionation Fundamentals for Facilities Engineers - FFR - Virtual, Blended Short Course

This short course is from the industry-standard Gas Conditioning and Process course (G-4), known globally as the Campbell Gas Course.

This short course covers fractionation and stabilization of hydrocarbon liquids at both the basic and fundamental levels. Fractionation is one of the most complex processing units in a gas production and processing facility, and is often the least understood. This short course will prepare a facilities engineer to understand the operating envelop of stabilization and fractionation columns, what sets the operating pressure and bottoms temperature required, typical fractionation column control options and how to troubleshoot fractionation column operations.

The self-paced online modules cover the following topics:

  • NGL extraction (note: this sets the feed composition of the liquids to the first column)
  • Stage Separation vs Fractionation
  • Relative Volatility
  • Operation of Key Fractionation Equipment
  • Fractionator Design Concepts
  • Types of Internals in Mass Transfer Columns.

The virtual,instructor-led lecture will cover how to estimate the fractionation column operating pressure and bottoms temperature, as well as cover the different column process control options. The problem assignment will reinforce the key operating principles covered in the instructor lead session, and will lead to more effective column troubleshooting skills.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Production and processing personnel involved with natural gas and associated liquids, to acquaint or reacquaint themselves with gas conditioning and processing unit operations.

This course is for facilities engineers, process engineers, senior operations personnel, field supervisors, and engineers who select, design, install, evaluate, or operate gas processing plants and related facilities.

These short courses are ideal for mid-career professionals that have experience in the industry and have been transferred to a new role or assignment.

They are also ideal for new engineers that need to get up to speed quickly on the primary principles of gas processing with a deep dive on the issues of the short course topics.

Outcome / Qualification etc.
