    Price: $99.00

    About the Webinar

    In this one hour on-demand webinar, Dr. M. R. Riazi covers topics on petroleum and natural gas characterization, processing and production. The webinar also provides a review of several important manuals on petroleum and natural gas.

    What You'll Learn

    In this pre-recorded webinar you will learn about:

    • How oil and gas are still contributing to more than half of the world energy demand.
    • How they will play an important role in the world economy for at least the first half of this century, considering the cost involved with biofuels and security issues with nuclear energy.
    • How production, processing, and transportation of oil and gas with respect to economic and environmental constraints produce clean hydrocarbon fuels.
    • The role of characterization techniques in oil and gas processing and production.
    • The latest developments in the field of hydrocarbon processing with emphasis on heavy oil and features of modern refineries.
    • A review of ASTM MNL50 on "Characterization and Properties of Petroleum Fractions".
    • A review of ASTM MNL58 on "Petroleum Refining and Natural Gas Processing".
    • An introduction to ASTM MNL73 on "Exploration and Production of Petroleum and Natural Gas".

    The last 15 minutes of the webinar will be for Q&A.
