A new path
Nancy D. Yamaguchi, Contributing Editor, discusses the future of Europe’s oil sector.

Optimal operations
Koichi Wada and Tsukasa Shiga, Kobelco Compressors America Inc., USA, outline the importance of selecting the most suitable compressors for use in polyolefin plants.

Mirroring a flexible landscape
Tushar Patel, Atlas Copco Gas and Process, explores how integrally-geared compressors bring greater agility to NGL recovery.

Cutting out contaminants
Justin C. Slagle and Donnie Joe Worth, Bryan Research & Engineering Inc., USA, along with Jesus Mejorada, Empire Gas Services LLC, USA, discuss options for removing methanol from NGL in an amine treater.

Separate to save
Molly Tsipis, Pentair, USA, explains how contaminants in amine systems can be avoided by optimising the process with high efficiency separations.

Accurate amine relief estimations
Ayan Dasgupta, Soumitro Nagpal and Harshit Sharma, Fluor India, discuss accurate relief load and composition estimation for amine regenerators.

Stream separation
Ross Dugas, The Dow Chemical Co., USA, shares how hydrocarbon separation technology can help with cost-efficient C3+ removal from natural gas streams.

An accurate measure of quality
Jake Tivey, Orbital Gas Systems, USA, explains the importance of efficient gas quality measurement for fiscal metering in adapting the gas network for the future.

Connection for detection
Duncan Gooch, Honeywell Industrial Safety, explores how bringing wireless connectivity to traditional fixed gas detectors can help take plant efficiency to the next level in the digital age.

Prediction with precision
Massimiliano Di Febo, Pasquale Paganini and Alfredo Costa, IPC, Italy, share CFD simulation tips for the process industry.

The burning issues
Richard Martin and Matthew Martin, Honeywell UOP Callidus, discuss the traditional operating issues associated with radiant wall burners, and a new design which overcomes many of these issues.

A strategy for compliance
As flaring practices come under increasing scrutiny, Courtny Edge and Dan Smith, Trinity Consultants, USA, outline how a flaring minimisation assessment can help to ensure compliance.

Focus on flare pilots
Clayton A. Francis, Zeeco Inc., USA, discusses the requirements of modern flare pilot detection systems.

Revamping flare gas analysis
David Fahle, Servomex, USA, explains how plant flares can reach high levels of efficiency and better comply with emission standards using continuous gas analysis methods.

Going green
Ilan Toledano, Wattco, Canada, explores how circulation heaters can help the oil and gas industry reduce emissions.

LNG: an evolving market
Nimalan Gnanendran and John Baguley, LNG Ltd, Australia, discuss the growth of the LNG market and the future of next generation LNG plants.

Capturing the value of LNG
LNG plants may provide potential for decarbonisation via carbon capture and storage implementation. Jorge Arizmendi-Sanchez, Ben Eastwood, Costain, along with Jasmin Kemper, IEA-GHG, explain.
