Two Phase Separation

This course will provide participants with the knowledge necessary to understand the two phase separation, its components, and operation. Discussions will focus on the principles of operation of two-phase separation, as well as the different kinds of two-phase separators that are used in the oil and gas industry.

Participants will be exposed to the operation of the two-phase separator, its internal parts, and the associated equipment used to support the two-phase separation process.

Upon completion of this course, participants should have gained an understanding of the technology related to two-phase separation within the industry.  Having this knowledge will help each technician develop confidence and professional enthusiasm, therefore, increasing their efficiency. The knowledge that technicians gained from this course will be further expanded by on-job training and practical experience they will receive throughout the duration of their career.
