Dehydration of Natural Gas

Dehydration of Natural Gas



The dehydration is an important process in offshore gas processing. The gas is dehydrated offshore to avoid dangers associated with pipeline transport and processing of wet gas. The problems include corrosion, water condensation and plugs created by ice or gas hydrates.

This training is designed to familiarize participants with the design and operation of gas dehydration equipment, with an emphasis on the operation of typical glycol dehydration systems. The training is designed for personnel involved in the design and operation of gas processing facilities. This course is customizable to client needs.
