In an earlier post, Creating Pressure Relief Valve Fugitive Emissions Testing, we described the advancement of this effect to create standards in this area. I joined Emerson’s Dr. Amr Gado and Calvin Deng as they presented this work in an Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) technical track, Striving Toward Safety Excellence in Offshore and Subsea Environments.

Globally, oil and gas producers seek ways to lower fugitive emissions for safety, environment and economic reasons. These are the unintended emissions of gases from pressurized parts of the production process. At the upcoming April 30-May 3 Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Emerson’s Amr Gado and Calvin Deng will present a paper, Pressure Relief Valves […]

In 2007, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published Leak Detection and Repair, A Best Practices Guide. Here is how the EPA describes this guide. Leaking equipment, such as valves, pumps, and connectors, are a large source of emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and volatile hazardous air pollutants (VHAPs) The Leak Detection and Repair: […]

A recent ControlGlobal.com article explored the energy savings of variable frequency drive (VFD)-based centrifugal pumps versus control valves in flow control applications. The article, Eliminating the Control Valve sums its position in the subtitle, “Valves Are Energy Hogs; They Stick; They’re Prone to Mechanical Failure. So Why the Reluctance to Replace Them With VFDs?” The […]
