Environmental Pollution Safety
This training course provides not only an introduction into the subject of Atmospheric Pollution Safety in oil-gas operations but also provides an in depth understanding of the mathematical modelling required for the solution of gas dispersion and radiation calculation equations.
Each day consists of lectures in the morning and a hands on workshop in the afternoon. The workshop allows the participants to appreciate the design process associated with atmospheric dispersion calculations. Various software will be available during the workshop to predict gas dispersion and radiation levels along with recommended practices.
Mathematical models are developed from first principles along with their solution techniques.
The participants will have a total appreciation of the methodology required to develop strategies for Gas dispersion and radiation design for the oil and gas industry.
Day 1 of the course will provide an understanding of gas release dispersion phenomena that occurs in oil and gas exploitation projects.
A detailed explanation of mathematical models presented that can represent operational conditions as close to reality as possible. The various models for Plume Rise and Gas Dispersion are presented with equations developed for use in the software (provided to participants) used to model operating cases.
Day 1 starts the hands on workshop in which the participants are split into two groups with the objective of designing and assessing the best options for gas release safety and strategy to cater for all anticipated operational scenarios.
Day 2 of the course will provide an understanding of Flare Stack radiation phenomena that occurs in the oil and gas pipeline systems.
A detailed explanation of mathematical models presented that can represent operational conditions as close to reality as possible. The method for predicting flare stack design characteristics, radiation levels, steam injection requirements, noise level prediction and design recommendations are presented. The design is developed with the use of a software (provided to participants) is used to model operating cases.
Day 2 starts the hands on workshop in which the participants are split into two groups with the objective of designing the best stack operating strategy to cater for all anticipated operational scenarios.
Day 3 involves the presentation of the case studies.
A critical and constructive evaluation through question and answer session is presented with each group defending its logistics and development philosophy.
Any free time will be used in discussions of actual problems experience by the participants of the workshop.
The participants are presented with certificates of completing the “Atmospheric Pollution Safety” training course for oil and gas operations.
