Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Oil and Gas Industry

  1. Pacing A Hydrocarbon Sampler With No Plant Downtime
    1/29/2016

    An oil refinery in the Southwest United States needed to sample diesel flow during shipment to ensure that the product characteristics were uniform throughout the batch. A local hydrocarbon sampler company provided a pressurized sampler. However, a flowmeter would also be necessary to pace the taking of the diesel sample with the flow.

  2. Optimizing Gas Storage Fields Operation Through High Accuracy Multiphase Flow Metering
    8/6/2015

    Natural gas consumption is far from being constant over the months. Typically Natural Gas (NG) is stored in summer periods, when there is lower demand for it, and is withdrawn in the winter periods, when significant amounts of NG are used for heating.

  3. Fighting For Florida’s Surface-Water Standards
    8/17/2016

    Late last month, a panel of regulators appointed by Governor Rick Scott narrowly approved the first changes to Florida’s surface-water quality standards since 1992. Marked with adamant support on one side and passionate protest on the other, the sweeping amendment has left questions about how clean Florida’s water will be.

  4. Flare Gas Flow Measurement And Control
    2/2/2016

    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.

  5. Selenium Removal Technologies: A Review
    1/15/2016

    Selenium, a contaminant of concern in industries such as mining, oil refining, and power generation, is removed from wastewater principally through either biological or chemical/physical processes. This article will describe those technologies, several technology providers, and other sources of information.

  6. Resource Revolution: The Energy/Water Nexus In Unconventional Oil & Gas - Highlights
    4/29/2015

    GE partnered with the Wharton School's Initiative for Global Environmental Leadership (IGEL) for an industry leaders' discussion about the energy/water nexus in unconventional oil & gas production.

  7. Hydraulic Fracturing And The EPA Water Study: Where Do We Go From Here?
    8/3/2015

    It’s been two months since EPA released its much anticipated draft report on hydraulic fracturing, and organizations like ours are busy preparing their official comments, which are due at the end of August. But based on what we have learned so far and what has been written in the media, it’s important to spend some time on what the report said — and didn’t say — and what it all means.

  8. 3 Dirty Little Secrets About Coriolis Flowmeters
    11/16/2017

    Ever since Coriolis flow measurement technology achieved mainstream appeal, industry has been fervently striving to take advantage of its benefits. And while Coriolis is clearly a highly advantageous solution for many crucial flow measurement applications, it is not without flaw.

  9. Tank Monitoring Challenges Solved With Radar Level Transmitters
    10/25/2018

    An electrical contractor in the Upper Midwest United States provides oilfield tank monitoring for several oil companies. They supply level measurement and control in nearly 400 barrel tanks containing crude oil and/or produced salt water.

  10. Saving Oil And Gas: Improving Profit Margins In Down Times With Innovative Water Management
    5/31/2016

    With oil prices depressed, exploration and production companies unearth the money-saving opportunities in water management planning.
