  • Flare Gas Flow Measurement And Control
    Flare Gas Flow Measurement And Control

    In oil/gas production, refining and storage operations around the globe, flare gas systems are used to burn-off and dispose of waste, excess or off-gases, and as a safety system. The accurate, responsive and reliable measurement of flare gas is essential in order to assure proper operation of the flare gas system, which protects people and equipment from potentially hazardous combustible gas to maintain a safe working environment and to avoid environmental contamination.

    How To Manage The 4 Water-Based Fluids Associated With Hydraulic Fracturing

    The primary fluid used in hydraulic fracturing is water and the completion process can require from 2.75 - 8.25 million gallons per well. This white paper discusses the different water management and instrumentation requirements for controlling and processing drilling mud, hydraulic fracturing fluid, flowback water and produced water.

  • Has Fracking Gone ‘Green’?
    Has Fracking Gone ‘Green’?

    There are few topics more controversial these days than hydraulic fracturing ("fracking"). While the debate rages on as to whether fracking poses a risk to water quality, a new desalination technique addresses two other environmental concerns: water scarcity and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Developed by researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC), the breakthrough technology uses excess carbon dioxide created in the fracking process to desalinate the process water, making it available for water reuse. It also generates chemicals — hydrochloric acid and carbonate salts — that are valuable for many industrial applications.

  • Capacitance Level Switches Provide Reliable Water/Oil Interface Detection
    Capacitance Level Switches Provide Reliable Water/Oil Interface Detection

    There are a number of point level approaches to measuring the interface between water and oil for water dump control in the oil and gas industry. However, each has disadvantages — manual methods introduce human error, conductivity switches are rendered inaccurate by buildup, and float switches are susceptible to wear and tear. This white paper introduces capacitance level switches as an accurate and reliable alternative for water/oil interface detection.

  • Shape Matters: The Benefits Of Cone-Type Flow Meters
    Shape Matters: The Benefits Of Cone-Type Flow Meters

    Selecting the proper flow meter will take an operator through a fairly typical vetting process, including consideration of capital expenditure (CAPEX), O&M requirements, effectiveness, and durability. Manufacturers of all meter types (e.g., Venturi meters, magnetic flow meters (magmeters), cone meters, etc.) will surely claim to excel in these categories, but can they back up the claim?

    Membrane Contactors Reduce Radiation Build-Up In Nuclear Power Plants

    For nuclear power plants, controlling dissolved gas in the water system can be essential in preventing the release of radioactive material. Several nuclear power plants have recently installed Liqui-Cel® Membrane Contactors into their water systems to remove dissolved gases. This application note explains how the membrane technology reduces the formation of radionuclides to protect both the operator and the environment during plant overhaul and decommissioning.

    Can Co-Locating Utilities Solve The Water-Energy Nexus?

    Resources being a scarce commodity, it’s incumbent upon us to optimize the use of water and energy as best we can. While conservation is the prime course of action for the public, the best solution for utilities may be to work smarter — by having the water-energy nexus work for us instead of against us.

  • How To Fix High pH And Comply With The Clean Water Act
    How To Fix High pH And Comply With The Clean Water Act

    When the Clean Water Act was enacted, one of the intentions of this legislation was to reduce the untreated industrial waste water burden on publically owned waste water treatment plants (POTW) so that industrial wastewater would only load the treatment plant to the same extent as ordinary household sanitary waste. Industrial facilities that generated process wastewater had to begin pre-treatment of the water before it could be returned to the local POTW.
