Many refineries and oil terminals are located beside major stretches of water, either sea or river, to provide a cost-effective transportation route for incoming crude oil and feedstock, and for outing finished products. If left undetected, a hydrocarbon leak...

When driving continuous safety improvements, a well-informed facility manager needs to focus on tank integrity and the day-to-day challenges of tank farm personnel. In this storage terminal safety podcast, we are joined by Emerson’s Dave Macedonia to discuss today’s most cost effective and innovative technologies to help prevent tank over pressure or under pressure events that jeopardize tank integrity and personnel safety.
For many E&P companies considering field automation, it may seem that installing a SCADA system will provide all the information, alarms and control you need to reach your goals, including boosting production and reducing costs. And SCADA does help, but not nearly...
Lamar University’s Center for Midstream Management & Science, led by Thomas Kalb, will be hosting a November 10, 10-11am CST virtual roundtable discussion, Corrosion Issues in the Midstream Industry.
The roundtable features Emerson’s Dr. Christiane Lederer and other distinguished panelists from CorrPro-Aegion and Energy Transfer.
In this storage terminal safety podcast series podcast, we are joined by Emerson’s Per Skogberg and Christoffer Hoffmann. We discuss how predictable tank incidents can become preventable with Remote and Continuous Floating Roof Monitoring.
Emerson’s Manuel Arroyo, Director, Oil & Gas Industry Programs kicks off a storage terminal safety podcast series by highlighting some of the risks & challenges and previews some of the technologies that can help these terminals improve safety, environmental compliance and terminal operations.
Any process manufacturing company that has not yet launched a cybersecurity program is probably frozen in a frequent difficult position: Where do we start? If your company is trying to break free and make some progress—and maybe you’re the one tasked with doing it—we...
Emerson’s Justin Hollingsworth shared a story of a Bakken shale region oil & gas producer test on the viability of using Coriolis flow meter technology at the wellhead to measure produced liquids. The Flow Control article, Wellhead flowmeter pilot test on the Bakken Formation, highlights the rigorous testing process to prove the robustness and accuracy of this technology for this challenging measurement application.
Overview The dangers of Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) aka Sour Gas in oil and gas production are well known. A highly toxic, corrosive, flammable and explosive gas. H2S is colourless and although characterised by it "rotten egg" smell, at high concentrations can also be...
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies are being adopted by every industry, and oil and gas is no exception. Recent events have certainly emphasized the need for IIoT technologies that make data available when and where it is most needed, whether that’s onsite or remote. Compared to traditional SCADA-based approaches, IIoT is highly disruptive. Every single core paradigm from SCADA networks that were once widely accepted and adopted are now in question.
In a World Oil article, Versatile DP flow metering technology solves redesign challenges on offshore platform project, Emerson’s Panthini Patel teamed up with Wood’s Bridget Spencer and Suganya Kandasamy, formerly with Emerson Impact Partner Laurentide Controls.
With advances in operational analytics, smart instruments and the applications they feed can now help identify problems in the process early in order to maintain optimum performance levels. I caught up with Emerson’s Drew Baker in the Permian Basin Service Center to share some onshore oil & gas production examples with me.
