Internal corrosion monitoring is critical to preventing and addressing corrosion inside gas and oil pipelines. It’s also the first step in choosing the right corrosion mitigation method based on identified corrosive constituents.Read More
Developing a reliable hydrocarbon sampling program doesn’t end with implementation. It requires a maintenance service program that will keep your equipment running properly to ensure operator safety and equipment performance. But it can be overwhelming to establish a hydrocarbon service program. Get started with these 5 steps.Read More
Read Part I in this series to learn about the tools used to monitor pipeline corrosion.
Pipelines carrying oil and gas experience internal corrosion when water is present inside the lines. The amount of corrosion will vary, depending on factors such as temperature, total pressure, CO2 and H2S content of the gas, pH of the water, flow conditions, use of inhibiting chemicals and more.
But no matter the amount of corrosion, it can have devastating effects on your equipment.Read More
In a hydrocarbon processing plant, crude oil must be processed into more refined products. Establishing a sampling program for all types of refining processes in hydrocarbon processing plants requires special considerations for successful and safe operations.Read More
According to the Farmers’ Almanac, this year’s winter is predicted to be a “polar coaster” with freezing, frigid and frosty weather across two-thirds of the country. This level of extreme weather leaves midstream pipelines at risk for damage such as freezing.Read More
Cycle chemistry management is the best way to help prevent, recognize and minimize potentially devastating water chemistry events. Smart alarms assist in this by monitoring cycle chemistry, identifying chemistry events in real time and allowing chemists to take proper actions to correct conditions - preventing system damage and protecting assets.Read More
It’s not a matter of if, but when your plant will incorporate the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) into its everyday operations. The IIoT is making manufacturing smarter and faster than ever before by attaching networked sensors and intelligent devices to equipment to gather data, store it wirelessly, and then use analytics and machine learning to take actions that will optimize operations.Read More
Corrosion is one of the biggest threats to the petroleum industry and preventing it is especially critical in systems susceptible to producing corrosive environments, such as flow lines, transportation pipelines, vessels, water systems, boilers, vacuum towers, cooling systems, amine systems and crude oil systems.
In order to mitigate this devastating occurrence, accurate measurement and monitoring is crucial.Read More
Many industrial plants in the United States were built decades ago and were not expected to still be in operation. Yet many are still running today, well past their expected life span. Within these plants, hydrocarbon sampling systems and equipment are often overlooked, even as new technology and regulations demand more from them.Read More
Globally, there’s a trend for increased policies and regulations around producing low-sulfur and ultra-low-sulfur (ULS) transportation fuels. These are often referred to as “clean fuels”. “Clean” transportation fuels typically focus on removing sulfur oxides (SOx), specifically sulfur dioxide (SO2), and mitigating pollutants, such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, hydrocarbons and particulates, from vehicles’ exhaust. Sulfur oxides can cause respiratory problems and lung damage in humans and environmental issues such as tree, plant and stone damage; acid rain and hazy air. The less sulfur content in fuel, the less polluting SOx emissions that fuel will release.Read More
