Gas Processing/LNG / Process Optimization / Project Management / Information Systems / Management / Natural Gas
Over the past decades, one engineering firm has been using discrete event simulation (DES) to study shipping and storage as an integral part of project execution throughout all phases of a process facility’s design, construction and operations.
Outlook: Industry Leaders’ Viewpoints
2016 Industry Leaders’ Viewpoints—Part 1
To kick off the new year, industry leaders and esteemed colleagues shared their viewpoints on 2016 and beyond with Hydrocarbon Processing.
Environment and Safety
Improve facility safety by understanding process and personal safety
Environment & Safety / Gas Processing/LNG / Maintenance & Reliability / Petrochemicals / Process Optimization / Refining / Crude oil / Environment / Loss Prevention / Safety
The lack of knowledge and understanding about process safety is still apparent in many industries where hazardous materials are processed and handled.
Process Engineering and Optimization
Solve online analyzer time delays by improving sampling system design
Process design engineers may occasionally become involved in the design of online analyzers and their associated sampling systems.
Editorial Comment: 2015—Looking back and looking beyond
As we transition into 2016, we leave behind a year that saw dramatic changes in both the upstream and downstream industries.
Reliability: Interpreting API Standard 618 for reciprocating compressors
A rotating machinery engineer working for an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contractor in India is often involved in selecting reciprocating compressors for hydrocarbon processing plants.
Engineering Case Histories: Case 88: Normal operating loads do not usually cause failures
Equipment of all types are designed for normal operating conditions, usually with some margin for unknowns.
Viewpoint: A four-step approach to ensure pipeline integrity
North America’s vast oil and gas pipeline network spans more than 2.6 MM mi in the US alone, delivering fossil fuel feedstocks to refineries, gas processors and petrochemical manufacturers, and finished fuels to end users.
Trends and Resources
Industry Perspectives: Is 2016 the year when crude oil bounces back?
With both West Texas Intermediate (WTI) and Brent crude oil prices tumbling almost 50% from 2014 to 2015 due to a global supply glut, this past year was one of great uncertainty in the downstream sector.
Business Trends: Special report--Global LNG overview
Gas Processing/LNG / Americas / Asia/Pacific / Construction / Economics / Engineering & Design / Environment / Europe / Middle East / Natural Gas / Utilities
Liquified natural gas is forecast to become one of the most valuable commodities in the world.
Refining / Americas / Asia/Pacific / Biofuels / Crude oil / Diesel / Europe / Gasoline / Middle East / Naphtha / Natural Gas
Asian margins showed a strong recovery due to higher winter heating fuel demand, supporting middle distillate crack spreads.
Global Project Data
Gas Processing/LNG / Petrochemicals / Refining / Americas / Asia/Pacific / Construction / Economics / Europe / Middle East
According to <i>Hydrocarbon Processing's</i> Construction Boxscore Database, new project announcements averaged approximately 25 per month in 2015.
