Bradford lecturer speaks Young Professional Training Day

Young professionals who have recently joined the Natural Gas Processing industry, students considering Natural Gas Processing as a career and engineers wishing to update their knowledge of specific aspects of Natural Gas Process design, came together this month for the annual Young Professional Training Day.

Dr Nejat Rahmanian, Lecturer in Chemical Engineering at the University of Bradford recently spoke at the 2015 Gas Processor Association Europe (GPA)- Young Professional Training Day on the subject of MEG Dehydration.

Dr Rahmanian described how the injection of monoethylene glycol (MEG) into subsea pipelines prevents the formation of hydrates and the rich MEG is re-circulated in the closed loop to offshore platform. The regeneration of MEG is performed in a unit where the rich MEG is transformed into the lean MEG by removing the absorbed water and contaminants to avoid the potential blockage in the subsea pipelines. He then discussed his study into a new alternative of MEG regeneration including the full and partial salt reclamation and compared the results with the conventional MEG regeneration unit.

The Training Day was specially formulated to, wherever possible, have a pair of presentations from Academia and Industry on the same subject to present the current state for research and then offset that against the current best practice in design and issues that need to be considered.
