Separator Design and Troubleshooting

Date: 6-Oct-22
Duration: 1 Day

Instructors: Robert Chin & Victor Van Asperen
Disciplines: Projects, Facilities, and Construction
Course Description: This course describes different types of separators and scrubbers for a desired performance, how to design, and how to troubleshoot and debottleneck. We focus on gas-liquid separation with emphasis on liquid removal from gas. Discussions will begin with descriptions of two and three phase separators. The course then covers fundamental separator/scrubber design principles including inlet piping and motion effects on performance.  Internals for enhancing separation performance will then be explained. A brief overview of inline and subsea separation will be presented. Troubleshooting and debottlenecking examples of separators and scrubbers will be discussed.

Production Forecasts and Reserves Estimates in Unconventional Resources

Date: 6-7 October, 2022
Duration: 2 Days

Instructor: John Lee
Discipline: Reservoir
Course Description: This course will provide training in production forecasting and reserves estimation for low-permeability resource plays (such as shales) using simple, rapidly applied decline models favored by the industry for routine forecasting. Recommended methodology will be based on fundamental fluid flow theory rather than only on experience with different modeling techniques. The course will conclude with a comparison of decline models and a suggested workflow applicable to a wide variety of models and soundly grounded in fundamentals.

Fluid Properties and Phase Equilibria (PVT)

Date: 6-7, Oct-22
Duration: 2 Days

Instructor: Birol Dindoruk
Discipline: Reservoir
Course Description: This (PVT) class will focus on the advanced and key topics of reservoir fluid properties, fundamentals, practical measurements and workflows. In the class, we will emphasize use cases and various examples including modern PVT report reviews as well as the key use-case related elements of equation of states (EOS s) that are often shared in our industry, especially in relation to reservoir models and other tools that use the PVT data. In addition, we will give a broad view of the new developments in all elements of the development cycle, including exploration, reservoir and production management, EOR/IOR and even CO2 sequestration. As the complexity of fluids and the reservoir conditions become more challenging, progress in the computational area is also being made, such as, new EOS models and computational techniques, advanced characterization methods, etc. Therefore, complex fluids and their implications will be inherently part of this class.

CEUS: 1.6 CEUs for attending this 2-day course.
