Gas Chromatograph Training for Technicians and Managers

For this two-day course, EffecTech has a range of Gas Chromatographs most commonly used onsite and in laboratories. Students will gain hands-on practical experience in their use, calibration and maintenance. Theoretical aspects of Gas Chromatography and the calculation of physical properties will be covered.

Students will also receive an overview the role of gas quality measurement in the natural gas / LNG industries, including what natural gas is and how and why its composition is measured.

Statistics and Uncertainty

Students will receive an overview of the importance of statistics and the calculations of uncertainty when making gas measurements. Students will examine the types of errors found in gas analysis and how they are propagated. The importance of repeat measurements, trend analysis and Monte Carlo simulations will also be covered. The course will include practical exercises to build confidence in developing spreadsheet-based uncertainty calculations.

Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)

This course will provide an overview of the measurement of LNG and focuses on the difficulties in sampling and measurement of LNG. Current best practice will be covered along with an introduction to the cutting edge research EffecTech has undertaken to produce known composition LNG which has been subsequently used to validate optical instruments for the direct measurement of LNG (Raman).

Future Courses

The EffecTech Training Academy is also working with partners to develop courses with external instructors from other disciplines within the oil and gas industry so that customers can receive a one-stop shop training package suitable for their needs.
