Training Information

  • Duration:

    1 to 2 days

Course description

Biogas and other gases whose addition to the natural gas supply is proposed, differ from natural gas in terms of their composition and consequently their chemical, physical and micro-biological properties. 

This customised course identifies the key differences, examines their implications, and gives advice on mitigation of the associated risks. Practical guidance is also given on how the parties involved should discharge their responsibilities for the quality of the gas supply.

The course duration is from one to two days depending on requirements. 

Result

  • Awareness of the crucial issues associated with accommodating biogas and other non-natural gases within the natural gas system
  • A clear picture of how to manage the associated risks

This course is available upon request, please contact us for further information on this course.
