Storage tanks play a pivotal role in the supply chain from upstream oil & gas production through downstream petrochemical-based products. Separation of water from the hydrocarbon liquids during storage create the need for operations to remove and treat this water as it builds up over time. Emerson’s Ryo Hashimoto shared a story of an Asian […]

We started the Emerson Exchange 365 (EE365) global community several years ago with the idea of building a community much like how the Emerson Exchange conferences are conducted—as a peer-to-peer, non-propriety, knowledge sharing venue. We often reference many of the EE365 groups at the bottom of each blog post, as a place to go and […]

Gas chromatographs (GCs) are used in natural gas applications to measure the hydrocarbon components. The heavier natural gas liquids beyond butane and pentane are referred to as C6+ hydrocarbons. Gas chromatographs performing C6+ analysis are used by hydrocarbon processing facilities when high-quality product specifications are required or when rigid custody transfer standards are needed in […]
