This intensive and interactive three-day course is designed to address the operation and control of coal seam gas processing plants. Coal seam gas processing involves gathering gas from well heads at near atmospheric pressure through the use of
screw compressors. The gas is then compressed and dehydrated in gas plants utilising centrifugal compressors and tri-ethylene glycol (TEG) dehydration. Centrifugal gas compressors, screw compressors and glycol dehydration are therefore the core topics which will be covered in detail. Each topic will be covered using a mix of short lectures, videos, dynamic simulation models and group workshops.
Suitable for: This course is designed for participants with little or no prior coal seam gas processing experience. A basic understanding of unit operations including centrifugal compressors and glycol dehydration would be an advantage but not necessary. Operations personnel who have some level of responsibility for the operation, control or management of the coal seam gas processing facility would benefit most from this course.
