Avoiding Missed Gas Volume Flow Measurements in Plunger Lift Wells

Measuring flow rates on producing gas wells can be difficult on plunger lift applications. The mechanical plungers are used to remove water slugs which build up and reduce production rates. When the plunger pulls up the well bore, the differential pressure (DP) flow measurement can spike beyond the range of the DP transmitter. This spike […]

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 […]

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 […]

There once was a time for industrial manufacturers when they received fairly homogeneous supplies of natural gas that did not vary much in energy content. Here in the U.S. with the rapid increase in shale gas production as part of the overall energy mix, there is more variance. In a Power magazine article, Gas Chromatographs […]

Measure tank levels can be challenging based on many factors including liquid composition, tank geometry, fill/empty rates, etc. And, if measuring levels on marine vessel tanks, there is added complexity with this non-stationary environment. I saw a LinkedIn post from Emerson’s Bert Konings about the complexities of level measurements in marine environments. In it, he […]
