Description
Natural gas sampling, testing and analysis. Fundamentals of natural gas
metering. Determination of common contaminants in natural gas. API and
ANSI standards measurement requirements. Natural gas primary treatment.
Objectives
The purpose of this course is to present and integrate the necessary
fundamentals from natural gas engineering in order to understand the basic
knowledge of proper measurement, sampling, and analysis of raw and
processed natural gas streams. In addition, practical experience, and industry
standards requirements are integrated for students and for graduate engineers,
who desire to practice in natural gas industry. In this course we put special
emphasis on using the various mechanical measurement techniques, the
various technologies of gas metering, international standards.
Topics
 Introduction to natural gas, pressure and temperature bases for gas
Covered
measurement, physical constants, calculation procedures (2 classes).
 Origin of natural gas (2 classes).
 Physical properties of natural gas, gas laws, density and specific volume,
compressibility, formation volume factor, mole fraction, volume fraction
and mass fraction, apparent molecular weight or molar mass, volume of a
pound-mole, relative density, molar mass ratio, specific gravity of natural
gas, viscosity of natural gases, calculation of the gas gravity or molar mass,
gas calorimetry (4 classes).
 Types of natural gas, wet, sweet, and sour (2 classes).
 Field equipment, conventional separators (vertical, horizontal, spherical)
filter separators, stage separator, low temperature separators (3 classes).
 Gas measurement, introduction, methods of measurement (volumetric
measurement, displacement metering, differential pressure methods, turbine
meter, elbow meter), orifice meters, description of orifice meters, (basic
equation, computation of volumes, recording charts, orifice meter selection,
uncertainties in flow measurements, mas flow meter), Alterate methods
orifice well tester, orifice assembly with single tap, pulsating flow, critical
flow prover, open flow pitot, choke nipple tube natural gas liquid
