LNG FUNDAMENTALS – Oct’18

LNG FUNDAMENTALS

16 – 18 OCTOBER 2018, SINGAPORE

About The Course

The course contrasts the technical and commercial differences between LNG and natural gas to point out benefits and constraints that arise from the LNG option. A description is given of the elements in the “gas chain” which apply to LNG and of drivers that would lead to optimisation of design and commercial operation.  The range and role of relevant parties to a successful LNG project are described. Regulatory authorities are also concerned with LNG safety, which is covered in detail.  Ways and means by which a new entrant to a proposed LNG project may ensure an investment that meets expectations.

 

Actual case histories will be used frequently to demonstrate learning points.  Case histories and exercises will deal with examples taken from international and local experience.

 

An introduction to terminology and practical “rules of thumb” should further enhance the participant’s ability to immediately contribute to a successful gas project – and to ask the right questions to test and improve the viability of a proposed project.

Learning Outcomes

On completion, participants in the course will be able to

  • Understand the special characteristics of LNG which both broaden and yet constrain the commercial and technical links in the “gas chain”
  • Generate options for market development proposals
  • Understand risks and their mitigation
  • Negotiate more effectively the terms of LNG sales agreements
  • Understand the perspectives of the investor, the operator, the customer and government towards the LNG project
  • Recognise political and diplomatic implications of international trade in LNG

Who Should Attend

LNG project development executives are drawn from both technical (E&P geoscience and engineering) and non-technical (commercial, finance and legal) backgrounds. Participants who have recently joined an LNG market development team, perhaps with expertise in one area of gas development, will benefit from the course by obtaining a good grounding of all other areas

Ultra Supercritical Steam Power Plants – Jun’18

ULTRA SUPERCRITICAL STEAM POWER PLANTS

Design, Selection, Applications, Operation, Maintenance, Performance Monitoring, Power Augmentation, Emission Control Methods, Carbon Capture Technology, Economics, Profit Optimization, Revenue and Life Cycle Cost Analysis

25 – 26 JUNE 2018, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

About The Course

This seminar will cover all aspects of ultra supercritical steam power plants and advanced ultra supercritical power plants.  These plants have achieved a net electrical efficiency of 50%.  This efficiency is significantly higher than the efficiency of conventional power plants which is around 33%.  This indicates that ultra supercritical power plants burn 50% less fuel than conventional power plants to produce the same amount of power.  The ultra supercritical power plants burn coal and biomass.  The environmental emissions of these plants are negligible.  Some ultra supercritical power plants employ carbon capture technology. This makes them more environmentally friendly than any other type of power plants.  They also have higher reliability and lower capital, operation and maintenance cost than conventional power plants.  Large number of ultra supercritical power plants are being built around the world today. China will be installing more than 100,000 MW of ultra supercritical power plants and advanced ultra supercritical power plants during this decade.  Several countries around the world have embarked on a program to replace their conventional coal power plants with ultra supercritical power plants due to their high efficiency, and reliability and low capital, operation and maintenance cost.  Ultra supercritical power plants provide significant economical and environmental advantage over any other type of conventional power plants.

 

This seminar will cover in detail all the components of ultra supercritical steam power plants including steam turbines, boilers, furnace, burners, steam generators, reheaters, superheaters, feedwater heaters, valves, carbon capture equipment, instrumentation, control systems, fuel handling systems and generators.  This seminar will also cover the design, selection considerations, operation, common problems and solutions, maintenance, pay-back period, and economics of ultra supercritical and advanced ultra supercritical power plants in detail.  This seminar will provide in-depth coverage of the emission control methods, carbon capture technology, reliability, economics, monitoring and governing systems of ultra supercritical and advanced ultra supercritical power plants.  This seminar will cover up-dated information in respect to all the significant improvements that have been made to these power generating plants during the last decade.
