Reducing methane emissions during pipeline repair and maintenance
5 October 2022

Sponsor: STATS Group 

 Pipeline operators face challenges associated with eliminating methane emissions during intervention activities such as hot tapping and line isolation for mainline replacement and facility upgrades. This webinar will provide an understanding of how STATS BISEP® double block and bleed isolation technology, can be used to achieve a leak-tight and emission-less isolation. This approach allows operators to complete critical maintenance and repair activities safely without the need to flare or vent methane into the atmosphere.

A case study will be discussed highlighting the use of the BISEP and how it helped an operator to reduce methane emissions on a natural gas pipeline project and support the client to achieve their methane emissions reduction goal.

Natural Gas Measurement with Ultrasonic Clamp-on meters
14 September 2022

Sponsor: Flexim

Clamp-on meters have been around for over 40 years. As a result of improvements in the technology, the last 15 years have seen clamp-on meters working on a full range of gas applications. Many non-fiscal applications that were done by orifice, turbine, and ultrasonic spool meters are being done by clamp-on meters. These meters are cost effective, easy to install, and are proving to be very reliable and accurate. Flexim will give an overview of the technology, show laboratory & field results, and a range of applications where clamp-on meters are being applied.

Improving Data Quality of Medium Voltage Drives
28 June 2022

Sponsor: Siemens

Medium voltage drives are often exposed to extreme stresses that can cause wear and tear over their lifetime. Without regular maintenance, damage often goes undetected until an equipment failure. Learn more about addressing these challenges with innovative condition-based monitoring to ensure unparalleled reliability, availability and enhanced maintenance. Take a look at the technology based on feedback obtained from real-time sensors that are integrated into the drive system. Some of the conditions monitored by these integral sensors include, but are not limited to:

 

  • Ambient temperature
  • Humidity
  • Presence of chemicals like hydrogen sulfide, among others
  • IR sensors to detect hot spots for customer connections

 

All of these factors impact the life and performance of medium voltage drive equipment. This unique approach to VFD design allows users to identify potential failures early, prioritize their maintenance and maximize plant uptime by extending equipment life and performance.

Global pipeline trends: What does the future look like?
24 May 2022

The continued growth in oil and gas pipelines, both onshore and offshore, flies in the face of the global push to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and embrace renewables. As we transition towards net-zero, why is there still a need, even for the mega-project?

Global Energy Infrastructure pipeline expert Kevin Fuller teams up with Michael Reed, editor of Pipeline & Gas Journal to discuss the deeper impacts of the last few decades, analyse some recent trends and demonstrate how Global Energy Infrastructure’s database will provide you with the data you need to succeed in the field.
 

Some of the topics to be discussed include:

  • Regional Impact – Update and challenges for new oil and gas projects. Who are the big winners and losers as we survey new Oil & Gas projects across the world?​​​​​​
  • Security of supply – The impact of the Ukraine/Russian War for Europe and the World? What does the post-war situation look like in the region?
  • The European Hydrogen Backbone – Repurposing the gas network. What are the key issues and challenges?


We will also discuss some upcoming pipeline projects from around the world and ask whether the current situation changes our thinking about them:

  • EastMed pipeline
  • Power of Siberia II
  • EACOP projects
