Process Simulation for E&P Facilities (FAC04)


    This course introduces participants to the efficient application of process simulation tools in E&P applications. Theoretical approach is backed by real-life calculation examples of typical equipment.

    Course Level: Skill

    Designed for you, if you are...

    • A process engineer with E&P background
    • Responsible for plant design and equipment engineering

    How we build your confidence

    • Lectures reinforced with sample calculations
    • Presentation of full-fledged process simulation models of entire facilities

    The benefits from attending

    By the end of the course you will feel confident to:

    • Build process simulation models from scratch
    • Perform individual equipment process design
    • Validate existing design by independent simulation
    • Understand and generate heat & mass balances and process flowsheets
    • Analyse case studies to determine the optimum operating points of the process
    • Select suitable equilibrium calculation models for individual applications


    • Basics of process simulation models and their build-up
    • Overview of most common simulation software applied in the E&P industry and their advantages / merits
    • Defining and managing crude oil assays
    • Building of individual equipment simulation blocks and combination of these blocks to a converging model
    • Use of hypothetical components
    • Rating of standard equipment (heat exchangers, separators, columns etc.)
    • Sizing and verification of flare headers using process simulation
    • Applied case studies on a life process simulation
