This course covers front-end engineering design of new production facilities for a potentially viable oil/gas field. Common offshore and onshore field development modes are first reviewed. Various oil/gas processing systems are studied, including gas dehydration, condensate handling, acid gas removal, LPG extraction, and crude oil stabilisation. Design tasks studied include process simulation, preparation of process flow diagrams/piping & instrument diagrams, HAZOP studies, and project management arrangements. Students will make extensive use of a commercial process simulation software package during tutorials. Each student shall carry out an example facilities scoping study and submit this as their final design report. Special Project. (Ref: PTRL3021)
