Process Integration Training Workshop: Upstream Oil & Gas Sector


WHEN: 
MARCH 17-19, 2015

WHERE: SANDMAN HOTEL – CITY CENTRE, 888 7TH AVE SW, CALGARY, ALBERTA (GREAT ROOM 3)

COST:  $500 + GST

LIMITED SPACE:
TRAINING AVAILABLE FOR 15 PEOPLE

 

PROCESS INTEGRATION WORKSHOP FOR THE UPSTREAM OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY

Taking case studies from the upstream oil and gas industry, participants in the March 17-19 Process Integration workshop in Calgary will learn to use the technique of Pinch Analysis and the INTEGRATION software package to understand how energy flows through an industrial plant, and how to minimize energy consumption.  Taking a holistic approach to understanding industrial processes and how the different components interact will yield greater energy savings than tackling equipment and processes independently.  Process Integration is a comprehensive analysis of an industrial plant’s energy use as a whole.  Integration of energy flows through different processes has the potential to save a plant up to 35% in energy costs and related greenhouse gas emissions.  This is a reason why many of Canada’s leading companies in a variety of industries have embraced this approach for their own facilities. CMC Research Institutes is proud to partner with Natural Resources Canada to offer Alberta’s oil and gas industry the opportunity to learn more about Process Integration and Pinch Analysis by holding a 3-day training session in Calgary.

COURSE OUTLINE
DAY 1  (8:00 AM – 5:00 PM)
  • Introduction to heat integration of industrial processes
  • Principles of global energy analysis and basic Pinch analysis concepts
  • Graphical representation of process streams and heat exchanges
  • Determining minimum energy consumption and heat recovery potential of a process
  • Identifying heat exchanges that are sources of energy inefficiency

DAY 2  (8:30 AM – 5:00 PM)

  • Steam, Refrigeration and Compression systems – For each utility system
  • Overview of main equipment items and basic principles
  • Evaluation of energy performance and sources of waste heat; influence of operating parameters
  • The utility system in a global analysis context: evaluation of heat recovery potential

DAY 3  (8:30 AM – 5:00 PM)

  • Analysis of heat exchanger networks using Pinch analysis
  • Case studies from the oil and gas sector:  SAGD process
  • Financial programs for industrial energy efficiency

FEES

Registration is $500 +GST.  Though valued at $2,500 the course can be offered at a reduced price because of the support provided by NRCan’s ecoENERGY Efficiency for Industry program.

FOOD

Continental breakfast, coffee, and lunches will be provided each day.

COMPUTERS

Each participant will:

  • Have access to a laptop supplied by NRCan with the INTEGRATION software already installed.
  • Receive a USB memory stick with the presentation materials and a copy of the INTEGRATION software.

REGISTRATION & PAYMENT CAN BE MADE HERE
