Growing demand and higher prices for natural gas might seem like good news for Asia's largest oil and gas company. But for giant, Sinopec — the world's fifth largest company — significant gas price increases in China also impact the cost of its own gas processing operations. That's why engineers from the Sinopec Nanjing Engineering Company (SNEC) sought innovative technologies that could reduce energy consumption in the amine gas treating process at the state-owned company's Songnan Natural Gas Plant in northeast China.

Since the January 1, 2010, implementation of the International Maritime Organization's (IMO's) MEPC.159(55) effluent discharge regulations, many marine and offshore oil and gas professionals are now more closely examining the various logistics of solids/sludge handling requirements associated with commercially available marine sewage treatment plants (STPs) in order to avoid potential health, safety, and environmental issues.
MIOX recently expanded its product line by developing the Blackwater mobile water treatment system for oil and gas water management. MIOX's patented Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) electrochemical technology eliminates SRBs and SPBs in produced water and frac flowback water, eliminates hydrogen sulfide, and reduces iron that causes scale.
