Course description

Gas Treating and Sulfur Recovery - G-6

This course emphasizes process selection, practical operating issues, technical fundamentals, and integration of the sweetening facilities into the overall scheme of gas processing. Sulfur recovery and tail gas processes are also covered, including standard Claus configurations, SuperClaus, EuroClaus, SCOT, etc. Special design and operation topics, such as trace sulfur compound handling and the importance of H2S:CO2 ratio, are covered as well. Related topics reviewed during the course include liquid product treating, corrosion, materials selection, and NACE requirements.

For the virtual session, course hours will be 0800-1200 CST (GMT - 6:00) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for each of the two weeks.

"Presentation of different technologies according to different requirements and the reasons of selection. Practical examples and pictures or site." - Process Engineer, France

"Exercises, calculations were very interesting and useful." - Participant, Kazakhstan
