    Reducing Storage Tank Thief Hatch Emissions

    Regulations on emissions for process manufacturers and producers have continued to grow ever stringent. Storage tanks in oil and gas production sites account for a sizable percentage of volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions. To address these regulations, you may have seen last week’s news, New ultra-tight thief hatch reduces storage tank emissions, conserves tank contents . I caught up with Emerson’s...

    Optimizing Gas Turbine Fuel Gas Supply

    The mission of this blog has always been to bring the experts around Emerson to you. Many of these folks also share their expertise in our Emerson Exchange 365 global user community and with LinkedIn posts. I’ll highlight an example I saw today. Emerson’s Rossella Mimmi published a post, Gas Conditioning: Why, When and How . In it, she opens: Natural Gas has become the desired fuel for gas turbines...

    Monitoring Storage Tank Emergency Vents

    You will find low-pressure storage tanks in many industries including oil and gas, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and food and beverage. Emergency vents have traditionally been used as the last line of defense in overpressure situations. In a new whitepaper, Benefits of Wireless Monitoring of Storage Tank Emergency Vents , Emerson’s Steve Attri describes how the ability to monitor pressure release conditions...

    Pressure Regulators in Upstream Oil and Gas Processing Applications

    Managing pressures are a large part of the control strategies for upstream oil and gas applications. These pressures include those in the main processing lines, fuel lines and vapor spaces found in storage tanks. Emerson’s Thomas Weyer shared a new pressure regulator upstream oil and gas application map with me. It was designed to show the options of pressure regulators upstream and downstream of the equipment...

    Working Monitor Pressure Regulators in Fuel Gas Pressure Control

    Fuel gas drives the boilers, fired heaters, generators, compressors and more in many process manufacturing and production operations. Accurately controlling fuel gas pressure is important for optimum combustion and overall energy efficiency. I received a draft of an Emerson Exchange Denver conference presentation by Dow’s Tony Dafft, Ryan Baker with Emerson local business partner, Puffer-Sweiven , and Emerson’s...

    Controlling Pressure when Testing Oil and Gas Well Bore Cement

    For those not familiar with the oil & gas drilling process, the cement that is between the well bore and outside of the well casing is critical to the overall integrity of the well. PetroWiki defines its role : Cement is used to hold casing in place and to prevent fluid migration between subsurface formations. TESCOM ER5000 Series Electropneumatic Controller Controlling the pressure is very important in the...
