Shale Gas Conversion: Processing Alternatives and Economics

  May 07, 2013  
CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, 90 Minute Accredited Online Training
June 11, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (ET)

Who Should Attend
This online introductory training webinar will benefit R&D and design professionals in the following industries: refining, chemicals and petrochemicals processing. The material should also be pertinent for industry, academia, and government fuel gas scientists and engineers.

This webinar is designed for scientists, engineers and technicians who are involved in the conversion of natural gas into more valuable products. Managers responsible for program development and strategic planning should find this webinar of interest.

Other disciplines who would find this webinar of interest include process plant operators, and plant/project engineers.

With the discovery of vast quantities of natural gas available in various shale formations in Pennsylvania, New York and several adjoining states comes the opportunity to convert this gas, traditionally used for fuel, into more value added products. The methane fraction can be converted into intermediates such as ethylene via oxidative coupling or reforming to synthesis gas, whereas the ethane/propane (E/P) fraction can be converted into ethylene via conventional steam pyrolysis.

In this 90-minute, accredited webinar, the processing requirements of a variety of technologies starting with methane and E/P mixes will be presented along with the expected material and energy balances and production economics.

Organized by: CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers: Gennaro J. (Jerry) Maffia, Professor Emeritus of Chemical Engineering at Widener University and Consultant to the Chemical Processing Industry

After twenty years as a principal process engineer and manager in the petrochemicals industry, mostly with Atlantic Richfield, Inc., Dr. Gennaro (Jerry) Maffia joined Widener University in the fall of 1992 as Chairman of the Department of Chemical Engineering. In 2010 Prof. Maffia joined his alma mater Manhattan College as Professor of Chemical Engineering. He also continues as Adjunct Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Drexel University. Prof. Maffia is an active consultant in chemical and bio-based processes, and is an associate of several consulting firms. He has offered many short courses, webinars and training workshops on process engineering and related topics at industrial and academic sites around the world. Prof. Maffia has degrees from Dartmouth College (PhD), NYU (MBA), and Manhattan College (BE & ME). He is the holder of seven US patents, several world patents and is a contributor to another 50. Prof. Maffia has supervised 55 graduate theses and has been in residence during 4 world scale petrochemical plant start-ups.
