Course Overview:
The 10-day intensive course is designed for reviewing all unit processes in gas processing facilities including functions, how to size or rating and problem troubleshooting. It will also review the gas specification, related measurement and related instrumentation & control. The course will utilize the latest GPSA databook as reference. The GPSA databook will be given to all participants. The GPSA databook is selected since the databook has been proven as the widest gas processing industry reference.

Along the course days, there will be lots of exercising, calculator usage and practicing using the chart, graph and formula.
