Jayakarta Hotel, Bandung | April 26-30, 2010 |Rp.8.250.000,-



With rapidly increasing demand for natural gas, more and more people will need to require expertise in gas engineering technology. This course incorporate a proper balance between theory and application so the delegates from the company can immediately apply the acquired techniques to the field problems.


  • Develop a “feel” for the important parameters in designing, selecting, installing, operating and trouble-shooting gas handling, conditioning and processing facilities.
  • Understand the uncertainties and assumptions inherent in designing and operating the equipment in these systems and the limitations, advantages and disadvantages associated with their usage.
  • Ho to select, specify, operate, maintain, test and trouble-shoot surface equipment used with handling, conditioning and processing of natural gas and associated liquids such as separators, heat exchangers, absorption and fractionation systems, dehydration systems, refrigeration, Low Temperature Separation units, and compression systems.
  • How to evaluate and choose the correct process for the given situation
