Hydrocarbon phase changes in surface facilities/ Basic Production Operations

Hydrocarbon phase changes in surface facilities/ Basic Production Operations


About the Course

This course introduces the physical and chemical behaviour of reservoir fluid from subsurface facilities through surface to the transports lines. This course focuses on the phase behaviour of petroleum reservoir fluids and phase changes when they move from one point to the other. At the end participants will be able to incorporate phase behavioural knowledge to daily work activities.


Course Objectives

The learning objectives are: Description of the origin, nature and appearance of petroleum fluids, Understanding the different systems, phases, intensive and extensive properties of reservoir fluids, Description with aid of a pressure-temperature diagram the behaviour of a pure component and multi component, To give an overview of surface facilities in relation to the functions of each of the equipments, Ability to incorporate phase behaviour knowledge to daily   work activities
