The course provides a comprehensive grounding in all aspects of Liquefied Petroleum Gases Industry. It deals with the origin and occurrence of natural gas and describes recovery, properties and composition. Next, it deals with processing methods and explains the principles by which natural gas can be prepared for consumer use by removal of unwanted or noxious constituents. Finally, it provide participants with the knowledge required to understand the hazards and controls associated with LPG when dealing with the delivery, storage and dispensing of the product.
