Enhanced OGI improves Compressor Safety & Maintenance Coordination
15 April 2021

The Konica Minolta camera system aids in the detection of small leaks and thermal distribution.

Read the report on the benefits of clear images and stable operation as delivered by the Konica Minolta Camera Systems. In collaboration with Oil & Gas operators, Konica Minolta studied the operation of compressor stations during the period from late 2019 to early 2020.

Results demonstrated the benefit and importance of clear images for safe and stable operation:

  • Detect fugitive gas leaks quickly and easily
  • An analysis of thermal distribution of compressor engines
  • In addition, maintenance benefited from better planning and coordination.

With new technology and features, operators have the capability of keeping both their own employees and facilities safe, while minimizing economic loss thanks to efficient maintenance, as well as ensuring environmental compliance and peace of mind of the surrounding community.

Improved Measurement of Water Content in Natural Gas
1 April 2021

Given the unsettled nature of energy markets caused by the pandemic, the importance of monitoring critical attributes of pipeline gas is very high. Contaminates in natural gas can cause a variety of problems for pipeline operators and petrochemical plants, especially when combined with water. This makes accurate and reliable measurement of water content in natural gas streams critical, but traditional techniques often fall short. Fortunately, new analyzers offer much improved performance.

Reduce CAPEX by 50% and Footprint by 40% in Gas Quality Measurement Applications
10 September 2020

Compliance with gas quality specifications requires the measurement of both sulfur and natural gas energy content. Supporting these measurements often involves multiple gas analyzers or expensive and large conventional air-bath oven gas chromatographs. This white paper outlines ways to reduce cost, footprint, and complexity by leveraging the industry’s first explosion-proof gas chromatograph capable of combining the measurement of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), energy content, hydrocarbon dew point, and total sulfur compounds in a single compact, field-mountable gas analyzer solution.

Performance Audits | Key to Enhanced & Sustained Supplier Performance
1 September 2020

A 2019 Deloitte survey revealed that over 80% of organizations experienced a third-party incident in the last three years. A common underlying factor among these was a lack of in-depth knowledge about their suppliers. Only about 10% of the surveyed organizations reported having reasonable knowledge and awareness of their subcontractors, inducted by third-party suppliers. This distinct lack of awareness creates a serious risk that entangles organizations’ reputations as well as their future business potential.
