Introduction to Oil and Gas Production Facilities

Introduction to Oil and Gas Production Facilities


About the Course

In this course, what will be discussed ranged from overview of the oil and gas industry, hydrocarbon phase behaviour characteristics, and different reservoir types, to product specifications and the processes used to meet these. processing that may impact the production facility selection and operation.


Course Objectives

  • How the reservoir type, drive mechanism, fluid properties, location, and product specifications influence the selection and design of the production facilities
  • How to do quick ‘back of the envelope’ calculations to better understand equipment sizing and capacity
  • Parameters that affect the design and specification of oil stabilization and dehydration equipment
  • Awareness of the parameters that determine flowline/gathering system capacity
  • The purpose of separators in a production facility and familiarity with the typical configurations
  • Typical design parameters, operating envelopes, common operating problems of oil and gas production equipment, and the effect of changing feed conditions over the life of a field
  • To describe oil dehydration/desalting process options and equipment
  • Produced water treating options and the dependence on surface vs. subsurface, offshore vs. onshore disposal
  • Compressor performance characteristics and how they affect production rates and facility throughput
  • Gas dehydration process options, with a particular emphasis on glycol dehydration
  • The principles of asset integrity and inherently safe design given the rate, composition, temperature, and pressure of the production stream
  • About midstream facilities required downstream of the primary production facility to deliver saleable products to the market, and how these facilities are affected by production rates, composition, and production facility performance
