  • LGD F200 - Designed for easy zeroing and span adjustments

    Regular zeroing and span adjustments to gas analyzers in the field are suggested and required for a variety of reasons. Compliance to environmental standards, e.g. those outlined in the US EPA (40 CFR) or EN 14181 is an important factor. Special application conditions, e.g. a varying gas matrix or compensating for pressure effects can be additional reasons, where a zeroing and span adjustment ...

  • A Portable High Speed Gas Chromatograph for Field Monitoring

    Over the last two decades a variety of portable or transportable gas chromatographs (GC) have been specifically designed for field use. Each instrument has introduced innovations that have simplified the task of on site air monitoring. Portable instrument users are well aware of the advantages of field sampling. These advantages include more representative results because there is no sample ...


  • Baseline groundwater quality in unconventional oil and gas fields

    In recent years, expansion of unconventional oil and gas production has prompted significant interest in potential impacts on drinking water resources. In many cases, water quality investigations rely on access to landowner water wells to develop baseline data prior to drilling; respond to spills, complaints, or incidents; or evaluate potential impacts due to drilling, completion, hydraulic ...

  • Exergy of natural gas flow in Iran's natural gas fields

    Natural gas flow has a valuable pressure exergy which is currently destroyed in throttling valves at exit of the gas fields. In the current study, this pressure exergy has been calculated for an actual case. Exergy analysis was based on actual condition of the Shanol gas field, which is situated in Iran, in the summer. It is assumed to be a good representative of Iran's whole gas fields. Exergy ...

  • Leveling the carbon playing field

    Climate change is one of the most far-reaching economic challenges of our times. Unchecked, it threatens the welfare of people around the globe. Mitigating the worst of its impacts will require mobilizing capital and technology in innovative ways that will transform the global economy. The good news is that if we do it right we can generate technologies and markets that will not only leave us a ...

  • Evaluation research on performance of permeability and fracture in Sulige gas field by new method

    Tight gas is the most available alternative unconventional natural gas in China. Its potential is huge and the Sulige gas field is the biggest one. However, there are many urgent development problems to be solved, and evaluating well performance is of one of them. Low permeability, strong stress sensitivity and hydraulic fracturing make it difficult to predict well performance. Evaluating the ...

  • Safety Systems Depend on Reliable Field Sensors (Emphasis on Fire and Gas Detectors)

    Abstract Because not all hazards are the same, identifying and quantifying the hazard is the starting point in choosing sensing technology. Not all detectors are the same, and they should be selected according to their ability to detect the hazard. This paper gives a broad summary of technologies that provide users reliable responses to hazardous conditions, that minimise false ...

  • Field scale and economical analysis of carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and lean gas injection scenarios in Pazanan gas condensate reservoir

    Liquid dropouts around the wellbore in gas condensate reservoirs causes severe reductions in gas production rates, the permanent loss of a large portion of volatile and valuable condensates, and a wrong estimation of well deliverability. It is believed that applying diffusion coefficients and the Generalised Pseudo Pressure (GPP) method leads to more accurate modelling of reservoir performance. ...

  • Successful Dunbar Field Life Extension

    The advent of high-power multiphase pumps is changing the world of oil production. In particular, they allow continued production from fields that are nearing the end of their useful lives. These revolutionary pumps have been in operation since autumn 1999 on the Dunbar platform, in the UK sector of the North Sea. Multiphase pumping (MPP) is essentially a means of adding energy to the ...

  • Field Performance Testing for Pipeline Pumps

    Significant energy savings can be achieved by optimizing pump operating efficiency. Measuring the exact pump performance with crude oil under realistic conditions in the field is the first step towards improving the pump efficiency in the future. About 20 billion barrels of crude oil were transported through pipelines in 2015. Around the world, there are over one million kilometers of ...

  • Hydrate risks and prevention solutions for a high pressure gas field offshore in South China Sea

    YC13-4 gas field is located in the west of the South China Sea, where the seawater depth is around 90 m, and the average surface temperature is 26.2°C, while the minimum temperature at seabed is 18.9°C. Subsea wellheads are designed for gas production. In this paper, the risks of hydrate formation during drilling, well testing and gas production are analysed under different operation conditions. ...

  • New Developments in Thermal Dispersion Mass Flow Meters: In-The-Field Compensation for Changes in Natural Gas Composition

    Introduction The flow of natural gas in pipelines is often complicated by changes in the composition of the gas. The method described in this paper solves the problem of variable composition via a new four-temperature mass flow sensor. The new (low sensor feeds its measurements into the algorithms of an advanced mathematical model that includes gas properties in its calculations. The method ...

  • Field verification of on-line hydrocarbon dew point measurements

    Introduction The Michell Condumax II applies a fundamental measurement principle for direct measurement of hydrocarbon dew point. Measurement performance is assured through comprehensive factory test and calibration, to verify that each analyzer offers accurate determination of the temperature at which hydrocarbon condensate forms. Further extensive examination confirms highly sensitive ...


  • Numerical modelling of gas dispersion from road tunnels in urban environments: comparison with field experiment data

    Numerical computations and field experiments of the dispersion of a tracer gas from a road tunnel in Paris are compared. The Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes equations, combined with the k-ε turbulence model of Chen and Kim, are solved using the finite-volume code PHOENICS. Results are shown to be sensitive to the turbulence modelling and to the parameterisation of turbulence and drag forces ...

  • Collecting Data from the Field? Follow this Formula for Success!

    A drill operator at an oil rig is looking tired and “out of it.” He’s yawning, his movements are slow, and he doesn’t appear to be paying much attention to detail. Immediately, the supervisor relieves the drill operator of his duties and reassigns the task. He quickly enters the work observation in his iPad. His device has an offline mode that will sync up with his ...
