Design of Offshore Systems JEE361

Launceston

Introduction

Oil and gas production involves a number of surface unit operations between the wellhead and the point of custody transfer or transport from the production facilities. The present unit is designed to introduce offshore oil and gas production/processing operations. You will explore the theories and principles behind the production/processing of oil and/or gas for safe and economical storage and/or transport by pipelines. This unit will focus on a specific range of topics such as multicomponent/multiphase flow behaviour, emulsions, hydrate chemistry, dehydration, separator sizing and design etc. This is an advance unit that builds on the knowledge gained in Thermal Engineering and Fluid Dynamics in the previous year.
