This course provides a fundamental understanding of the science and practical applications of water treating. It presents the fundamental mechanisms behind various water treating equipment and processes, and gives practical experience from dozens of water treating facilities from around the globe.
Throughout the course, field experiences, practical issues, and field performance of equipment is analyzed and explained in terms of surface science, chemistry and engineering principles. The scientific aspects of water treating are presented in a practical down-to-earth manner that can be understood with little prior study, and can be immediately implemented in the field. The full project life cycle is covered from concept selection to front end engineering, detailed design, operation, and trouble shooting.
- Characterization of oil/water/gas for water treating
- Equipment selection and performance
- Process engineering and process line-ups
- Chemical treating
- Operations, monitoring, and surveillance
Learning Level: Introductory
Course Length: 2 Days
Why You Should Attend: Water treating is becoming increasingly important for maintaining the license to operate, as a component of DBOO project delivery, and for developing IOR/EOR projects.
Who Should Attend:The course is intended for process, facilities, and chemical engineers involved in either designing or troubleshooting water-treating systems. Both onshore and offshore facilities are presented.
Special Requirements: Attendees should have a basic understanding of upstream oil and gas facilities.
CEUs: Engineers are responsible for enhancing their professional competence throughout their careers. Licensed, chartered, and or/ certified engineers are sometimes required by government entities to provide proof of continued professional development and training. Training credits are defined as Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or Professional Development Hours (PDH)
Attendees of SPE training courses earn 0.8 CEUs for each day of training. We provide each attendee a certificate upon completion of the training course. 1.6 CEUs awarded for this 2-day course.
