Production facility design must result in facilities that are cost effective, safe, easy to operate, and can be used throughout the life of the field.  Operators are also keenly interested in optimizing newly designed facilities given the constraints of equipment availability, increased equipment costs and the constantly changing price environment.  New regulations and industry standards are re-defining the design and installation of equipment. Examples include reduction of methane emissions (vapor recovery and fugitive emissions), automation, piping codes, process safety, and facility spacing guidelines.  This one-day course will include:
