    8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Course Length:     5 Days       Course Dates:        May 13 – 17, 2019          Course Venue:      Dubai, UAE

Course Description:

Electricity power generation from oil and gas coproduced fluids using binary-cycle power generators or plants has been in multiple locations in the world. The course presents design and construction methodology of a modified waste-heat-to-power generator using produced water to create emission free electricity which can be used on site or for transmission off-site for field operations.  The course provides four steps for demonstrating feasibility and profitability of electrical power generation from co-produced water of oil and gas reservoirs – building simulation model, forecasting reservoir and production conditions over the lifetime of the co-produced project, converting the predicted produced fluid flow rate and temperature by the model to electricity output, performing economic analysis of the co-produced projects. The process of designing and constructing waste to power generator is also illustrated.  The course also features practical examples and case studies to illustrate the concepts presented in the training course.
