Gas Compression and Dehydration System

Dehydration is an important process in offshore gas processing. The gas is dehydrated offshore to avoid dangers associated with pipeline transport and processing of wet gas.

The course will cover the basics of gas compression and dehydration. The characteristics and operation of various types of compressors will also be covered.

As the course progresses, discussion will focus more on the process of dehydration. Topics covered during the discussion will include the impacts of pressure and temperature on the process as well as safety and ESD considerations.
