Chemical engineering students tour ORYX GTL plant

Published Dec 01, 2016


A group of senior chemical engineering students recently visited ORYX GTL at its plant facilities in Ras Laffan. The trip was supervised by Dr. Nimir Elbashir, professor in the chemical and petroleum engineering programs and director of the Gas and Fuels Research Center. The visit educated students about the design, operation and maintenance of equipment such as reactors, distillation columns and absorption towers. The tour helped the students understand the operation of the plant and see a workplace in action firsthand.
