  • Digital Technology to Transform Oil, Gas Hiring Practices

    The oil and gas industry’s effort to adopt digital technology not only will impact its daily operations, but its hiring needs as well. The oil and gas industry must pursue digital technology for two reasons: an aging workforce and increased focus on safety, said Mike Weast, IT regional vice president with professional staffing firm Addison Group, in a statement to Rigzone. As the majority ...

  • FTIR gas analyzers support management of fire at UK waste facility

    The capability to convene a multi-agency Air Quality Cell (AQC) was established in England in 2009 following the Buncefield Oil Storage Depot incident. A review of this event identified the need to rapidly co-ordinate the acquisition, analysis and interpretation of air quality data in major incidents.  Arrangements have been made in England to bring together experts from the Environment ...

  • Case study - Texas crude oil in soil sites

    Sunset Well Service, Inc. is an environmental contractor located in the Midland/Odessa area of Texas. They use their UVF-3100D analyzer to help excavate and remediate soils contaminated by produced water and crude oil. Laboratories in Texas test TPH using the TX 1005 GC-FID Method. This method is similar to U.S. EPA Method 8015M, but reports the GRO, DRO and ORO fractions separately. Soils from ...

  • Optimization of lamp arrangement in a closed-conduit UV reactor based on a genetic algorithm

    The choice for the arrangement of the UV lamps in a closed-conduit ultraviolet (CCUV) reactor significantly affects the performance. However, a systematic methodology for the optimal lamp arrangement within the chamber of the CCUV reactor is not well established in the literature. In this research work, we propose a viable systematic methodology for the lamp arrangement based on a genetic ...

  • AMETEK PI wins stack gas/emissions analyzer category bronze medal award in control magazine reader choice awards

    Every single interaction between customer and supplier is an oppor-tunity for providing good solutions. After awhile, these positive mo-ments really begin to add up. Despite the huge effort and extreme consistency required, the best vendors almost re¬ exively deliver useful products and services, and con-tinually develop and release new improvements and innovations. Con-sequently, over ...

  • Helium gas for nuclear reactors case study

    Application Moisture is measured in helium gas used for nuclear reactors. The helium is used as a reactor coolant because of its excellent thermal properties and chemical inertness. Problem If the helium becomes contaminated with moisture, it will cause both degradation of graphite rods and an undesired change in the process's heat balance. At worst, a ...

  • Analyzing the lifecycle of beer case study

    Challenge: A global brewing company requested Antea Group's Global Corporate Consultancy assess greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that result from the complete life cycle of beer and how the most common package types contribute to the "carbon footprint" of its products. The analysis was to be conducted in the context of the entire product value chain, from materials extraction and agriculture ...

  • Headspace gas chromatography with flame ionization detection (HS-GC-FID) for the determination of dissolved methane in wastewater

    There is currently a need for a simple, accurate and reproducible method that quantifies the amount of dissolved methane in wastewater in order to realize the potential methane that can be recovered and account for any emissions. This paper presents such a method, using gas chromatography with flame ionization detection fitted with a GS-Gas PRO column coupled with a headspace auto sampler. A ...

  • Global Shale Gas Development: Water Availability & Business Risks

    This report analyzes water availability across all potentially commercial shale resources worldwide.It also reveals that water availability could limit shale resource development on every continent except Antarctica. Shale resources are unevenly distributed worldwide and, for the most part, not located where freshwater is abundant. For example, China, Mexico, and South Africa have some of the ...

  • Determination of TOC in stack through the innovative FID analyser easy to carry - Case Study

    PROBLEM: The industrial chimney's emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are becoming issues of global importance and to have an accurate knowledge about how to test VOC turns into a strategic issue. VOC emissions are quantified and monitored according to standard EN 12619, using FID analyzer which uses hydrogen and other reference gases in ...

  • Field survey of Canadian background soils: Implications for a new mathematical GC‐FID approach for resolving false detections of petroleum hydrocarbons (PHCs) in clean soils

    The Reference Method for the Canada‐Wide Standard (CWS) for Petroleum Hydrocarbons (PHC) in Soil provides laboratories with methods for generating accurate and reproducible soil analysis results. The CWS PHC Tier 1 generic soil quality guidelines apply to four carbon ranges/fractions: F1 (C6‐C10), F2 (C10‐C16), F3 (C16‐C34) and F4 (>C34). The methods and guidelines were developed and validated ...
