The role of natural gas in the global energy mix continues to expand as it displaces coal and nuclear power as a baseload source of energy for electrical power generation. It is also an energy source for heating and cooking in many homes.
The supply and distribution chain for natural gas and other forms of energy grows more complex as other sources of renewable energy is added into the energy supply mix. Smart skids help to address this changing mix by performing real-time pressure and flow profiling and allow operators to make changes remotely to handle changing conditions along the pipeline network.
Predictive capabilities in the instrumentation help to spot issues early to allow them to be addressed before they lead to safety- or reliability-related issues. Distribution pressure levels can also be optimized to minimize greenhouse gas emissions along the pipeline network. Precise odorant injection helps add the smell necessary to detect leak conditions.
Watch the video and visit the Emerson website to learn more about pressure management and odorant systems. You can also connect and interact with other pressure regulation and management experts in the Regulators group in the Emerson Exchange 365 community.
