RESOURCES FOR THE PETROLEUM & REFINING INDUSTRY

  • In the spring of 2019, U.S. government-funded research on watersheds revealed a dire outlook for the future of water availability in the United States. Between population growth and climate change, the study reports that “serious water shortages'' are likely to occur within the next 55 years.

  • Klargastechnik Deutschland GmbH is a leading bioengineering, designer, manufacturer and installer of biogas and disgester gas processing equipment and systems that is headquartered in Germany. The company’s products include all-welded gas storage tanks, flare systems, dry and biological desulphurization systems, explosion proof (ATEX) certified blowers, gas drying units, filters and accessories.

  • Stories of real success with wastewater treatment at oil/gas refineries, and LNG and chemical plants are explored. See six systems designed for regulatory compliance while maintaining preservation of capital reserves. These systems illustrate the crucial need to balance corporate responsibility and corporate earnings when considering wastewater treatment at these types of industrial facilities.

  • Large, distributed water networks are not well-suited for conventional water monitoring processes which rely on manual sampling and lab testing. In particular, this midstream oil and gas company had a need to detect Iron, Selenium, and other heavy metals at a precise level comparable to a lab. In addition, it wasn’t feasible to manually test the entire water system at the requisite frequency. Finally, instrument reliability and unplanned downtime were an issue.

  • Filtration is very important for many commercial/industrial process water & wastewater reuse applications. In reality, pumping wastewater from somewhere like a refinery, food/beverage, textile or oil produced water application requires pre-filtration due to high amount of suspended solids in these typical applications. In fact, there are typically several filtration and treatment steps in these applications to ensure that the treated water meets the required discharge or reuse standard. In addition, filtration in water treatment ensures reduced operating cost on downstream polishing water treatment systems.

  • Produced water from the extraction process of oil and gas reserves, as well as flow back water from hydraulic fracturing operations, must be properly managed in order to mitigate any environmental impacts to existing water supplies caused by oil drilling/fracturing activities.

  • Oil and natural gas are considered valuable resources all across the globe. The number of products made from these two materials is impressive and our lives would be very different without them. Production of these products begins with locating the underground sources of crude oil. These deep well sources are then mined to extract the oil and gas materials. Afterward, these raw materials are sent to refineries to be converted into the petrochemical and gas products that we use nearly every day. Therefore, produced water treatment & management is an integral part of oil & gas company operations.

  • Crude oil is a fossil fuel formed from long-dead organisms subjected to intense heat and pressure underground. This resource is the main ingredient in the production of gasoline, diesel fuel, lubricants, kerosene, propane, and asphalt. All of these products can be made in a single refinery through a complex branching series of chemical processes. The central refining process is atmospheric distillation whereby the crude oil is fractured into different components based on their differing boiling points. Each of these fractions will be sent along to separate process to be turned into the different oil products. Therefore, remediation of refinery wastewater from these different processes can be quite complex.

  • Valves are one of the most common assets in the process industry, spanning all verticals. Chemicals, refineries, and petrochemicals, however, will find improved valve health diagnostics useful for critical valves and controllers in their plants, while upstream and midstream oil and gas companies may be focused on much larger, critical valves like pipeline or subsea valves. Using Seeq, process manufacturers are able to implement a condition-based monitoring analysis to monitor valve health across an entire fleet. Engineers can utilize the historical data to accurately create a predictive maintenance forecast and preemptively detect valve failures before they occur.

  • In process industries such as oil and gas, pharmaceutical and chemical, it is essential to maintain and prolong the lifetime of critical assets including pumps, valves, heat exchangers and compressors. Process companies need better insight into the condition of pumps and other assets. The goal is to gain a clearer understanding of when pumps are not operating efficiently–and the root cause of the degraded performance–instead of waiting until there is a catastrophic failure. Optimizing asset maintenance saves time and money.
