Hands-on Training

This three-day workshop uses a combination of lecture and hands-on group exercises to provide operators, engineering companies, and packagers with procedures and references for selecting, specifying, procuring, designing, applying, and operating large, high-speed reciprocating compressor packages.

The course includes a comprehensive, detailed guideline for designing and building high-speed compressor packages that meet customer and equipment OEM specifications. Project management, planning, equipment installation, and commissioning are also covered in detail.

In addition to copies of the course slides and exercise, each participant will receive a copy of the GMRC Guideline for High-Speed Reciprocating Compressor Packages for Natural Gas Transmission & Storage Applications, issued in October 2013.

Each participant will receive a comprehensive workbook, a valuable resource that will provide benefits long after the completion of the class. Breakfast, lunch, and refreshment breaks provided.
