Who should attend?

Audience

    • Managers, advisors, engineers, public environmental authorities and operations staff involved in the environmental management during the lifetime of a field development: from design to operation.

Level

  • Foundation
  • This course provides a thorough and applied knowledge of efficient techniques and best industry standards and practices for the recovery and valorization of associated gas and the reduction of flaring and venting.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • identify the stakes for the Oil & Gas industry for associated gas flaring reduction,
  • describe the recovery process of associated gas,
  • describe the different treatments of gas processing,
  • evaluate the alternatives to valorize the products from gas treatment.
