Course description

This introductory course is designed to provide participants with a complete and up-to-date overview of gas conditioning operations and processing technology. It covers product specifications and the processes available to condition the gas in order to meet these requirements. Participants will understand the nature and purpose of key gas processing operations, and how the individual operations are integrated into plants to process diverse feed streams received from oil and gas fields around the world.


  • Those directly involved in supervising gas processing operations
  • Managers involved in the planning and development of new gas processing facilities or modifying existing facilities
  • Production Supervisors, Senior Operators and those involved with gas production and injection
  • Individuals involved in negotiation contracts for the sale of Natural Gas, LPG and NGL Products
  • Newly employed engineers and technicians in the oil and gas processing industry
  • Both technical and non-technical personnel
  • Those employed in the activities that support gas processing
