Process Raman Gas Analysis in Ammonia Production and Refining

AbstractOn-line process measurement of the composition of gas streams in refining, fertilizer, and other manufacturingindustries is essential for the optimal operation of different process units within these facilities. Processanalyzers based on gas chromatography, mass spectrometry, and electrochemical technologies are commonly ...

Analyzing Analyzers: Metrology In Gas Pipelines

Natural gas companies turn to standard traceability to end disputes on H2S measurements.

The Oxygen Factor

Oil producers find a new revenue stream while going greener, but it comes with a risk.

The oxygen factor in vapor recovery units

It was so simple years ago. Whenever oil producers had natural gas vapors building up in the top of holding tanks, they simply vented or flared, after all, they were in the oil business not the gas business. Today those ...

Analyzing The Analyzer – Metrology In Natural Gas Pipelines

Upstream, you have producers and gas processors that deliver natural gas to fill the growing demand for the clean-burning fuel. Downstream, you have hundreds of miles of pipeline infrastructure to deliver the gas to market. In between, at the points ...

Analyzing the analyzer— Metrology in gas pipelines

J. Apgar, Contributing Writer, Chino Hills, California  Upstream, gas producers and processors deliver natural gas to fill growing demand for the clean-burning fuel. Downstream, hundreds of miles of pipeline infrastructure deliver the gas to market. In between, at the points ...

Analyzers Enhance Plant Efficiencies

HOUSTON–Processing raw natural gas to remove contaminants such as moisture and hydrogen sulfide, and recovering natural gas liquids includes many steps, including using cryogenic fractionation to separate the various hydrocarbons. This cryogenic process demands bonedrygas, with moisture levels below 100 ...
