Workshop objective: To demonstrate the key components in the understanding of the sulfur recovery units including the process chemistry, key operating parameters and troubleshooting techniques.
This sulfur recovery workshop is specifically designed for the training of personnel dealing with highly sour gas and sour crude oil. Given the continued development of sour gas fields in the Middle East, this training is invaluable in passing on essential information on the different SRU processes and their operational nuances. Further, during the SRU workshop, there will be time for discussion of current and past problems faced by attendees.
With our in-depth understanding of the Claus process, the workshop will impart a thorough understanding of the process to various plant personnel including engineering, environment, maintenance, management and operations. The training will provide value to those in attendance and will have an impact on your operational capabilities.
SRE’s training agenda has provided the following benefits to organizations.
Last, this workshop can provide additional benefits via avoiding damage to equipment, fines for emission violations, and production losses due to unplanned events. Our goal is that the participants will gain a better understanding of plant equipment, maintenance and processes by participating in the workshop.
