  • Identifying Leaks from Natural Gas Pipelines at a Safe Distance

    The use of natural gas, of which methane is the principle component, is increasing worldwide. According to the American Petroleum Institute methane meets 24% of U.S. energy demand and heats over 50% of all U.S. households. It also has many industrial uses, such as the manufacture of chemicals like ammonia, methanol, butane, ethane, propane and acetic acid; it is also an ingredient in products as ...

  • Modelling competition between natural gas pipeline projects to China

    China's natural gas demand is expected to grow rapidly in the coming decades. Therefore the potential of several pipelines from Russia and other CIS countries to China has been investigated. A two-step game-theoretic procedure for the problem formulation is proposed to assess the projects' economic perspectives. In the instantaneous supply game the players determine optimal supply levels to the ...

  • Using pipeline integrity rule for pipeline inspections

    Historically, transportation of oil and gas by pipelines remains the safest and most economical mode compared with other modes. However, pipeline integrity does cause a concern to the public and environment along the pipeline route because it is ever present at the location for its useful life. U.S. pipeline failure incidents in the late ’90s accelerated the process of mandating pipeline ...

  • Fugitive Gas Emissions In The Petroleum & Natural Gas Industry

    Challenge: Fugitive emissions in the petroleum and natural gas industry can come from a variety of sources and are classified as intentional (venting from tanks, compressor vents and stacks) or unintentional (equipment wear and tear, improper assembly, damage or manufacturing defects).  Most of these fugitive gas leaks are considered insignificant or  too small to ...

  • Siting and Safe Operation of Liquefied Natural Gas Facilities

    Regulations require facilities to use computer simulations to model potential fire and explosion hazards from accidental liquefied natural gas (LNG) releases. This has required the run of several separate computer models and manual transfer of data among the models, which is a time-consuming process prone to errors. The Code of Federal Regulations (49 CFR 193) defines safety standards for LNG ...
