Course description

Gas Conditioning and Processing - G-4

The Campbell Gas Course has been the standard of the industry for more than 52 years. Tens of thousands of engineers have attended our G-4 program, considered by many to be the most practical and comprehensive course in the oil and gas industry. The Campbell Gas Course textbooks, Volumes 1 and 2, are routinely updated to reflect evolving technologies in this broad industry. Both hand-methods and computer-aided analysis are used to examine sensitivities of technical decisions. To enhance the learning process, about 30 problems will be assigned, reviewed, and discussed throughout the course. Problems will be solved individually and in teams.

For the April and September virtual sessions, class hours will be 08:00-12:00 US Central time (GMT -5:00) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and online learning and exercises on Tuesday and Thursday each week.

For the June and November virtual sessions, class hours will be 08:00-12:00 Western Australia time (GMT +8:00) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and online learning and exercises on Tuesday and Thursday each week.

"Starting a technical based career, and this course was a great opportunity to refresh on engineering topics, which I'm hopeful will translate into climbing the learning curve more quickly." - Process Engineer, United States

"I want to thank you for the fantastic course. I learned an amazing amount over the two weeks and notice in my daily work that I understand a lot more about the processes than I did before. Thanks for the entertaining and very enjoyable course." - Snr Reliability & Integrity Engineer, Australia

"This was a brilliant course and [instructor] was fantastic throughout." - Participant, United Kingdom
