Petroleum Processing

Course Description

Study program: Petroleum Engineering (VI semester -OAS)

Name of subject: Petroleum Processing

Instructors: Dr Dušan Danilović, Miroslav Crnogorac

Status: Compulsory


Prerequisites: Passed courses from the previous year.

Course Objectives: The aim of the course is to familiarize with the technology of collecting and preparing oil, gas and water. Students are studying the processes of preparation of bedbugs, equipment for their preparation and its dimensioning. The system of collection and preparation of bed fleets ensures the production of these fluids, along with respecting the criteria of optimum, and preparing the fluid in order to fulfill the economic requirements for the further transportation of oil and gas, ie meeting the economic and ecological demands for the disposal of water.

Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the course, students are able to independently define the parameters of the individual preparation process, dimension the optimal equipment parameters, and design systems for the collection of oil, gas and bedding. In this way, they can fully manage the surface preparation of oil and gas.


Theory teaching
Lectures: Physical-chemical characteristics of oil, gas and water. Sedimentary water. Physical characteristics of the oil-gas mixture. Separation of gas from oil.
