CONTINUING EDUCATION LUNCH AND LEARN SESSIONS
SPE Delta will offer a series of lunch and learn sessions to explain the practical sizing and selection of oil & gas production equipment. There is no intention to approach deep engineering design. Production equipment design has as much experience involved as hard science. Basic theory will be reviewed and some of the criteria that are routinely ignored will be considered. Short cuts and rules of thumb to allow an engineer to have a conceptual feel for what is needed before he dives into the "hard"engineering on a project will be shown. Some routine practices by the industry will be reviewed as to whether they are really sound engineering.
The whole program is to generate thinking. Disagreement will be welcome. Separation, treating, and dehydration will be covered. Electrostatic treating will be reviewed.
The sessions will be led by Allen Porter, who has 65 years of experience on the shelf from some of the first wells to the present depletion production. His career almost spans the life of the shelf. He is the retired vice president of CE NATCO and the retired president of Allen Tank. His career began with Gulf Oil. He has production equipment and processing experience from all over the world and will expand on some of those systems. This is intended to be a fast moving, fun program with a basic background on design of facilities.
