Separation Technology

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


The candidate shall be able to select appropriate technology for separation of oil, gas, solids and water.

Learning outcome

The candidate shall be able to select appropriate technology for separation processes in the oil and gas industry.

Contents

Separation processes are used in a wide range of industries onshore and offshore. Solid-liquid, gas-gas and liquid-liquid separation techniques are under active investigation by researchers all over the world. The course will cover both fundamental and applied aspects of solid, gas and liquid separations; a broad spectrum of activities from pilot plant to full-scale plants, through laboratory investigations and theoretical studies. The course covers available and practical methods for removal of solids from aqueous suspensions; sedimentation, flotation, flocculation, filtration, and electrical separation techniques. Gas separation will be specifically demonstrated through use of polymeric membranes. Produced water treatment is a major part of the course.
Fundamental theory and applied aspects of solid-liquid separation are linked to provide new insights, and to indicate new ways of solving practical problems. Discussion on separation areas where there have been various differences of opinion will help iron out remaining uncertainties. Extensive references will encourage further studies in the field.
