GAS PROCESSING 101

As part of its mission to provide educational gas processing resources, GPAC is continuing a Gas Processing 101 (GP101) course that offers members a comprehensive source for information about the gas processing industry, with a particular focus on Canadian production and distribution.
GP101 is designed for people who:

  • are new to industry
  • wish to re-enter the field
  • are interested in transitioning to a different segment of the industry
  • are interested in learning more about certain topics

Presented over 14 modules by a collection of industry experts, GP101 provides both a theoretical and practical basis on a variety of subjects and explains how each one fits into the industry’s bigger picture. When combined, the modules provide a comprehensive overview of gas processing. However, the modules are stand-alone lessons that include an industry overview and members only interested in specific topics will also find value in taking the modules individually.

  • Gas Processing Overview / History
  • Production / Gas Gathering
  • Separation
  • Compression and Pumps
  • Sweetening
  • Dehydration
  • HC Recovery / Fractionation
  • Sulphur Recovery Unit
  • Acid Gas Injection
  • Fired Equipment, Heat Exchangers, Cooling Towers
  • LNG/Downstream
  • Utilities, Refrigeration / Relief Systems / Storage
  • Operation / Safety
  • Economics / Distribution

Lectures can be attended in person or via web broadcast and are ONLY available to GPAC members (GPAC membership: $85)

Course reference material: GPSA databook – Available for purchase at http://gpacanada.com/publications

Sponsorship opportunities available by contacting the GPAC office.
