Course description

LNG Short Course: Technology and the LNG Chain - G-29

This LNG Short Course is designed for participants requiring moderate technical coverage, coupled with information on LNG commerce and all parts of the LNG Value Chain. Over 5-days, the course covers technical LNG basics and facility operation topics, plus technical, design, and commercial issues. Selected exercises and syndicates are used to reinforce the main topics of LNG trade and technology. In-house versions are available with either increased technical and operational emphasis or increased project and development emphasis. More in-depth coverage for technical, production, and processing personnel is available in our 10-day course, G-4 LNG, Gas Conditioning and Processing - LNG emphasis.

For the virtual session, online sessions will be 0800-1200 CDT (GMT - 5) Monday-Friday the first week and Monday-Thursday the second week.
