RWG to Overhaul Siemens Gas Generators in Turkey

Botas Petroleum Pipeline Company has awarded RWG a contract to overhaul three Siemens Industrial Avon aero-derivative gas generators. This equipment, located at the Kirklareli Compressor Station, provides mechanical drive capacity for natural gas compression, helping to maintain the reliability of Turkey’s gas transmission network. Under the terms of the contract, RWG will complete major overhaul of each gas generator, including full disassembly, cleaning, inspection, overhaul and performance test in accordance with OEM criteria. In addition, RWG will restore unserviceable components within the company’s in-house OEM-approved component repair facility, mitigating the requirement to install new replacement parts. The […]

Setting New Standards in Natural Gas

July 2017, Vol. 244, No. 7

Have you ever heard the joke that asks, “Where do the writers of dictionaries go to look up a word’s spelling?” Or have you ever wondered how people truly know how long a meter is? Well, the answer in both cases is, there are standards that are used as references. Now, sitting in an unassuming laboratory in Denver, CO, there is a new global standard for the chemical composition of the primary constituents in natural gas. The product of a multi-year, international effort, these natural gas standards will serve as references in research and technology...

More to Quick-Opening Closures than Meets the Eye

July 2017, Vol. 244, No. 7

The common definition of a closure is a pressure-containing component used to blank off an opening nozzle on a vessel or end of pipeline. Under this definition, a closure could be: • Weld cap (flat, ellipsoidal, spherical, conical) • Bolted blind flange • Quick opening closure As defined by ASME B31.4 and ASME B31.8 a quick-opening closure is a pressure-containing component used for repeated access to the interior of a piping system. As defined by ASME VIII-1 UG-35.2 (a) (1): Quick-actuating or quick-opening closures are those that permit substantially faster access to the contents space...

Taking Measure of Flow Meters in Phase-Contaminated Oil Flow

July 2017, Vol. 244, No. 7

Accurate allocation measurement results are a key financial and commercial driver for E&P companies. Yet despite limited evidence of the performance of Coriolis and ultrasonic flow meter technology, they are being increasingly deployed for oil flows contaminated with water or natural gas. This article updates efforts to increase knowledge and understanding of Coriolis and ultrasonic meters at a time when oil and gas operators are facing significant measurement challenges in optimizing production and generating more from reservoirs. Short-Term Agility, Long-Term Resilience, DNV GL’s seventh annual benchmark study on the outlook for the oil and gas...

Bringing Gas Meters into the 21st Century

July 2017, Vol. 244, No. 7

Natural gas supplies nearly 34% of the energy needs in the United States, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA). This number will likely rise as recent advancements in exploration and availability of shale gas and innovative drilling techniques make it an increasingly attractive energy source. As utilities seek opportunities to create jobs and reduce emissions, natural gas will play a growing role in our clean energy future. While electric and water utilities have accelerated adoption of advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) technology, natural gas utilities have typically relied on walk-by or drive-by automated meter reading...

Advantages of Using Flow Meters to Reduce Pressure Drop

July 2017, Vol. 244, No. 7

Plant operators rely on plant air pressures to maintain properly working equipment and systems. One common problem affecting processing plants that use compressed air systems is the ability to maintain reliable pressure throughout the distribution system. Insufficient air pressures may be due to undersized distribution piping, but more commonly the causes are flow restrictions in the distribution system such as filters, check valves and fittings, as well as flow meters and gauges. Leaks in the distribution system actually rank low as the common cause of pressure drop – the reduction of pressure from the compressor...

Delivering Gas Off-Grid in North America

July 2017, Vol. 244, No. 7

Virtual pipelines are scheduled shipments of natural gas between two points – from A to B – by road, rail or sea without a fixed pipeline. Virtual pipeline operations are usually to be found in remote areas where the terrain makes it too costly or too difficult to construct permanent pipelines. They are also located in regions where the market is too small to justify the capital costs of a pipeline, or as a means to deliver gas to off-grid, large-scale gas customers. Virtual pipeline operators deliver gas in two main formats: (liquefied natural gas...
