The Scandinavian Academy adopts modern methods of training and development and raising the efficiency of human resource development, and we follow in that:
Theoretical lectures through PowerPoint presentations and visual presentations (videos - and short films)
Scientific evaluation of the trainee (pre-evaluation and post-evaluation)
Brainstorming and application and representation of roles
Practical cases that suit the scientific material and the nature of the trainees' work
Tests at the end of the course
The participant gets the scientific and practical material for the training program printed on paper and saved on CD or flash memory
Attendance reports for participants and final results reports with a general evaluation of the program
The scientific material for the training program is prepared in a scientific and professional manner, and this is done by the best professors and trainers in various fields and all specialties
At the end of the program, the trainee is awarded a professional attendance certificate (signed and certified) issued by the Scandinavian Academy for Training and Development in the Kingdom of Sweden (with the possibility of attestation from the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the trainee's embassy in the Kingdom of Sweden)
Training program times are from ten o'clock in the morning until two o'clock in the afternoon, and the program includes a snack buffet during the lectures
The removal of acidic components (primarily H2S and CO2) from hydrocarbon streams can be broadly categorized as those depending on chemical reaction, or adsorption.
Processes employing each of these techniques are described. The principle process stream is the removal of the acid gases by counter flowing contact with an amine solution, commonly known as Amine Gas Sweetening.
The acidic components removed are termed acid gas streams (containing H2S,) and may be flared, incinerated, or converted to elemental sulphur in a Sulphur Recovery Unit. Various Sulphur Recovery processes (primarily The Modified Claus Process) are discussed.
Participants attending this programme will:
Demonstrate an understanding of Amine sweetening and Sulphur Recovery technologies.
Grasp an explanation of the key features of gas treating
Discuss the thermodynamics of gas processing
Identify the main process steps
Evaluate, monitor, and troubleshoot gas treating operations
The course is specifically designed to be of substantial benefit to personnel within the Oil and Gas Industries such as:
Maintenance or project engineers.
It is designed for both technical and non-technical personnel as well as operational staff at professional level employed in refineries, petrochemical, and oil and gas process industries.
It will serve as an introduction to acid gas removal and sulphur recovery technology for those who are unfamiliar with the subject and will also assist those who need the ability to progress to a detailed knowledge of the gas processing technologies.
Amine Gas Sweetening and Sulphur Recovery is a hands on, stimulating learning experience. The programme will be highly interactive, with opportunities to advance your opinions and ideas. Participation is encouraged in a supportive environment.
To ensure the concepts introduced during the programme are understood, they will be reinforced through a mix of learning methods, including lecture style presentation, open discussion, case studies, simulations and group work.
The knowledge gained in this seminar will:
Enable the delegate to develop a proactive operating regime within the organization
Allow accurate troubleshooting practices to be applied to the gas processing and H2S removal processes.
Enable the delegates to optimize the safe operation of Amine and H2S units.
Give the delegates’ confidence to carry out operational supervision of the Units.
Provide a basis for decision making regarding optimization of gas treatment and sulphur recovery units
Delegates will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to understand the key elements of Amine processes and operation and to apply this knowledge effectively to improve overall unit plant efficiency. This will enhance their competence and performance level and making additional value added contributions to their organizations.
Understanding of Amine Gas Processing Units’ operating and maintenance techniques.
Familiarization of Sulphur Recovery process operating, and design, considerations
Ability to put in place measures to maximize efficient operation.
Improve process optimization techniques
Interface with other gas processing units.
