Course Content


1 day

  • Natural gas reserves, conventional or non-conventional.
  • Production, consumption and trade, utilization of natural gas worldwide.
  • Field treatment, production and by-products (ethane, LPG’s, condensates).
  • Different ways for gas transportation: pipelines, LNG shipping…
  • Quality specifications for commercial natural gas.
  • Valorization of natural gas: as fuel (domestic or industrial uses), generation of other energy types (electrical, cogeneration), car-fuel (CNG, GTL), chemical valorization.


1 day

  • Composition and feedstocks (natural gas, hydrocarbons, coal).
  • Different modes of syngas production: steam reforming, partial oxidation (POx), autothermal reforming.
  • Gas production from biomass: advantages, yields, constraints. Example of a biorefinery.


0.5 day

  • Maximization of hydrogen production in the refineries through the shift reaction.
  • Chemical synthesis: production of alcohol like Methanol, Ammonia and other chemical compounds.
  • GTL Complex (Gas-To-Liquid): production of liquid hydrocarbons from gas through Fischer Tropsch reaction.
  • Coal gasification.
  • Electrical energy production, steam and hydrogen for refining industry: IGCC (Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle).


0.5 day

  • Investment (Capex), operating costs (Opex), costs for raw materials.
  • Marketing advantages, environment issues.
  • Example: comparison of GTL with LNG.
  • Strategies of different actors: production countries of natural gas, licensers, oil or gas trusts, engineering companies.
