In this article, I present the major issues associated with obtaining a representative sample in NG applications. The article explains what is representative sampling, and why sampling is important in the natural gas industry. I discuss factors that determine what should be a suitable sampling frequency in a process, and which sampling standards can be followed to ensure representative sampling.
Several major issues in obtaining a representative sample, and common design flaws that lead to poor sampling are presented and discussed. In addition, I present how a suitable probe length can be determined and how the probe should be installed. The different types of commonly used sampling probes are also compared and discussed.
January 24 is celebrated as the International Day of Education to highlight of the role of education in promoting world peace and development. While this day emphasizes the need for equitable, quality learning for all, it also carries an important message for the industry in general.
This blog article discusses why employee training is important for the oil and gas industry. It also shows what causes the existing skills gap, how this gap can be bridged and the challenges of retraining employees. It emphasizes the importance of ongoing training for engineers, maintenance personnel & operators in the industry with a view to taking advantage of the latest technological advancements.
Modern hydrogen applications demand durable valves. Beside the challenges with the media hydrogen they also often have to operate reliably under high pressure or at extremely low temperatures. There are some challenges that the industries have to face. In this blog article, we describe relevant key data on hydrogen, hydrogen applications and hydrogen valves.
In this case study, I focus on how to avoid hydrate formation in natural gas pressure measurement pipelines. I describe the traditional approach to avoid hydrate formation during natural gas storage in salt caverns. Furthermore, I explain a patented customer solution that AS-Schneider has industrialized.
Many of my customers use natural gas storage facilities in order to balance out low and peak demands over the course of a year.
Over the years, I have gained a lot of valuable experience on this topic. This knowledge is what I would like to share with you in the context of a blog article.
