  • TORC Oil and Gas Customer Success Story

    TORC Oil & Gas Ltd is an intermediate producer that specializes in high quality light oil opportunities in the Western Canadian sedimentary basin. TORC had no reporting capability that provided an overall view of project status, just well lists and columns of field data in the master spreadsheet. Moreover, adding projects or bringing new consultants on board was too burdensome. This ...

  • Study: Climate change could overwhelm U.S. electrical grid

    Climbing temperatures associated with global warming could wreak havoc on the U.S. electrical grid, according to a new study on the economic and social costs of climate change. Published last week in the scientific journal Proceedings by researchers at the University of California-Berkeley, Stanford, and University of Michigan, the study says the country will need to spend at least $180 billion ...

  • National Grid Winter Outlook Report 2016

    Winter is coming….and the lights will be staying on Since March this year there have been a number of developments that have raised concerns over the ability to meet the UK’s energy demand, particularly during this winter period. A number of unplanned coal plant outages in the first half of the year have tightened supply margins significantly and placed greater strain on ...

  • Distributed Measurements Unlock the Future of Design

    The next generations of materials and design will require sensing technologies that can monitor beyond the scope of point sensors such as thermocouples and strain gauges. New sensing platforms based on optical fibers can obtain spatially continuous, real time data, giving developers detailed insight across broad areas into how their materials and designs behave. Such systems also can sense ...

  • Recapping the Debate Over Whether Low-Carbon Economies Are Good for Tech

    To be of any use, tech products need power from electrical outlets, stored chemical energy such as batteries and generators, solar collectors, kinetic energy like my emergency hand-crank radio/charger, or other means. As more global and local regions move away from fossil-fuel-based power to low-carbon renewable power, I wonder how my colleagues in the tech industry would weigh in on a debate ...

  • US LNG: A new era in the European economy

    Recent news from the gas market make it clear that the US starts its new energy policy with LNG. In April, the US Cheniere Energy for the first time delivered nearly 100,000 tons of LNG on a tanker to Portugal. It’s clear that the first cargo serves to test the route to Europe, but it’s obvious that this is already the beginning of a new era in the European economy of oil and gas, ...

  • A review of sulfide emissions in sewer networks: overall approach and systemic modelling

    The problems related to hydrogen sulfide in terms of deterioration of sewer networks, toxicity and odor nuisance have become very clear to the network stakeholders and the public. The hydraulic and (bio)chemical phenomena and parameters controlling sulfide formation, emission and their incidences in sewer networks are very complex. Recent research studies have been developed in gravity and ...

  • Case study - N°NG1 – Natural gas monitoring – Medor Exp

    Context & Challenges Natural gas used for household consumption typically contains odorant sulfur components for safety reasons. As natural gas is normally odorless, the sulfur components are artificially added. When natural gas is transported between various companies, regions or countries, gas companies have to verify that the sulfur species are present as specified. ...

  • Ethylene Production – A Tale of Explosive Growth and Air Quality Compliance

    ALL4’s Oil and Gas Sector Initiative was conceived in response to the renewal of the domestic oil and gas industry, associated primarily with the use of hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) and horizontal drilling in shale formations (e.g., Marcellus, Haynesville, Bakken, Eagle Ford) and the impact of greatly expanded oil and gas production on ...

  • Utilizing available `coldness` from Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) regasification process for seawater desalination

    Abstract With the increasing use of natural gas, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) is becoming more extensively used to ease the storage and transport of gas. The process of returning the natural gas to its gaseous state (regasification) prior to distribution to the gas pipeline absorbs large quantities of heat and therefore provides a readily available and inexpensive source of "coldness" at low ...

  • Gas-assisted injection Molding Advantages

    *Low injection pressure and locking force,thus reducing cost of equipments.Since gas-assisted injection adopts”underfeeding injection”,where in the thermoplastic filling of the mold cavity is accomplished under the pushing force of gas in the plastic melt, the injection pressure required is relatively lower and the locking force is also low(which can be reduced by 25%~90%),thereby ...

  • Global megatrends update: 4 Accelerating technological change

    Europe is bound to the rest of the world through an enormous number of systems — environmental, economic, social, political and others. Such networks enable complex flows of materials and ideas across the globe, producing uncertain feedbacks and knock-on effects over time. Greenhouse gas emissions in Europe today can affect the climate in distant locations and far into the future. Land ...

  • Knowing power grids and understanding complexity science

    Complex networks theory has been well established as a useful framework for studying and analysing structure, dynamics and evolution of many complex systems. Infrastructural and man–made systems like power grids, gas and water networks and the internet, have been also included in this network framework, albeit sometimes ignoring the huge historical body of knowledge surrounding them. Although ...
