PetroSkills: CO2 Surface Facilities

This course emphasizes the affect of carbon dioxide on the selection and operation of equipment (separators, compressors, and dehydrators), as well as sweetening process equipment. This program, first introduced in 1985, assists those working with carbon dioxide or high carbon dioxide content natural gas. This course is particularly applicable to those persons who operate and/or design enhanced oil recovery (EOR) facilities using CO2 as a miscible agent. Physical and thermodynamic property data for carbon dioxide/natural gas mixtures are discussed. Calculations are performed to illustrate principles and techniques. An extra day will be added to this course if a plant tour is available.

The plant tour is optional.

Designed for:
Engineers and senior operating personnel involved with carbon dioxide/natural gas/CO2 EOR systems.

You Will Learn:
Evaluate the effect of CO2 on physical/thermodynamic properties
Dehydrate high CO2?content gases
Practices to deal with Dense Phase pipelines, metering, flaring etc
How to pump and compress CO2
Using purification processes: membranes, Ryan-Holmes, amines, hot carbonate, etc

Course Content:
Overview of CO2 injection and process facilities
Heavy emphasis on CO2 for enhanced oil recovery
Physical and thermodynamic properties of CO2 and high CO2 mixtures
Materials selection and design consideration in CO2 systems
Process vessel specification
Pumps and compressors
Fluid flow
Dehydration of CO2 and CO2-rich gases
General overview of processes to treat/recover CO2
