Gas Dehydration and Glycol Regeneration

Gas Dehydration and Glycol Regeneration

Jayakarta Hotel, Bandung | Aug 2-4, 2010 | Rp.5.250.000,-per participant



Gas Conditioning refers to the steps taken to prepare gas for transportation, sales or further processing – such as recovery of natural gas liquids or chemical feed. This fundamental session deals with dehydration and hydrate prevention. Natural gas as produced normally contains water vapor. Water must be removed to a typical point of achieving a content of 7 lb/MMSCF for US transmission systems

The removal of water, or dehydration, is done to prevent hydrate formation (and potential plugging) or corrosion in the gas gathering, transmission system, or processing plant.



* Describe the activities associated with monitoring and regulating the dehydration process.
