Download Oil and Gas Separation Design Course

Oil and Gas Separation Process Design Course by udemy download for Vertical and Horizontal Separator Sizing with API 12J Considerations. The Oil and Gas Separation Design training course is designed to provide the harmony of theoretical knowledge behind oil and gas separation principles and practical guidelines (specifically, API 12J) for vertical and horizontal separator design.

Oil and gas separation is a common technique in upstream oil and gas wells, where crude oil and natural gas are often found in the same well. Oil and natural gas have different density levels, so mixing them together can cause problems down the road. Oil and gas separation allows for these two products to be distinct from one another. Process equipment companies in the oil and natural gas industry use a number of equipment units designed to separate, or “separate,” crude oil from fluids involved in the production of oil. Oil and gas separation is done by physical means, not chemical means.

The training course goes over the following topics, in 40 lectures and 5 practice sessions with 4 hours of video training material:

  • Principles of Separation Theory
  • Separation Mechanisms
  • Phase Diagrams
