The Power Of Pressure: Next Steps For O&G Companies Embracing 'Eco-Nomics'
By Audrey Bold, Energy Recovery
Oil and gas companies that have postponed getting on the clean tech train — usually because they don't believe there are enough proven technologies on the market — should think again about getting the journey started. Now that what we call the "eco-nomics" of clean tech solutions actually makes good business sense, we're seeing more oil and gas companies adopt processes such as capturing the energy used in gas processing. In fact, 3 of the 10 most active investors in clean tech startups happen to be among the world's largest oil and gas companies, according to research firm Cleantech Group.


Managing Assets For Maximum Performance And Value
By Warren Wilson, EMC Corporation
State-of-the-art asset management is critical in industries such as oil and gas exploration and production, oil refining and gas processing, and utilities that rely heavily on expensive and aging physical assets. Among other benefits, effective asset management reduces costs and risks, improves process flows and business continuity, increases profit margins, and aids in regulatory compliance.


Kennametal Conforma Clad Reduces System Blowouts For Solvay Advanced Polymers
By Kennemetal
When Solvay Advanced Polymers began plastics compounding operations in its Augusta, GA, facility 10 years ago, severe abrasion was causing unexpected conveyance line failures — multiple elbow and pipeline blowouts throughout its dilute-phase pneumatic conveyance system less than two weeks after the first compounding line began.

Jet Fuel Viscosity Using The SVM 3000 Stabinger Viscometer
Jet fuels are used in aircrafts powered by turbojet or turboprop engines. They consist of hydrocarbons (paraffins, cycloparaffins, olefins, naphthenes, and aromatics) and additives such as corrosion inhibitors, anti-icing additives and antioxidants. These additives depend on the intended use of the jet fuel, i.e. for civil or military aircrafts, for different climates or for special applications.

Thermal Flow Meters Help With Combustion Process Optimization
Accurate, repeatable measurement of air and natural gas, at low and varying flow rates, is a critical variable in advanced combustion control and can help improve efficiency, reduce fuel consumption, and enhance process quality.

Water Alternating Gas Injection System Requires Compact Flow Measurement Solution
A major oil and gas producer in the Southeastern U.S. needed to implement enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technology to boost production in a mature oil field. For the past 25 years the company had been using water-flooding, but this technology was no longer providing the desired output. The field's first well had been drilled in 1942.

Filtering Process Water
Upstream, downstream, and throughout the petroleum industry most discussions of filtration focus on the oil itself, as it was extracted from the wellhead and refined into saleable products. Yet throughout this process, a critical and consistent component is the use of water.
