Carbon capture and storage (CCS) or utilization (CCU) of captured carbon dioxide (CO2) are tools for reducing global carbon emissions, but with new technologies come new challenges. Learn about potential risks with CCS and CCU, and how they could be mitigated using modern sensor technology.
Monitoring corrosion risk provides early warnings to process conditions that may harm plant assets, allowing for better and faster mitigation responses. At the same time, it provides valuable data to optimize process parameters and support feedstock management.
As a complimentary technique to manual inspection methods, wireless corrosion monitoring can greatly enhance visibility into plant and asset health while also keeping personnel out of hazardous areas. In order to drive a plant to its maximum capability, operators must continuously monitor its corrosion risk in real time.
Avoid Production Loss and Integrity Issues in Underground Gas Storage Facilities with Solids Detection Technology
Solids production in the gas industry remains one of the main challenges that needs to be addressed to avoid integrity issues or loss of production. Implementing the appropriate monitoring technology helps improve maintenance routines and increase safety.
Avoid Loss of Containment in Underground Gas Storage Applications Using Continuous Corrosion Monitoring
Monitoring for corrosion during retrieval is a cost-effective way to ensure safety while maintaining the high utilization demanded by the gas network. Operators can seamlessly gather, store, and share solids production risk and erosion impact across key decision makers to enhance future storage and retrieval operations.
In this Storage Terminal Reliability podcast, Emerson’s Dag Joraholmen joins podcast host Jim Cahill to discuss how corrosion monitoring can reduce the need for reactive maintenance and increase the overall reliability of storage terminal operations across the production lifecycle.
Emerson’s Kevin Thomas discussed corrosion and erosion monitoring at the 4C Health, Safety & Environmental conference. Kevin opened citing some statistics.
In a Hydrocarbon Engineering article, Emerson’s Jake Davies looks at corrosion monitoring from a cost/benefit standpoint. Imagine this situation, which probably won’t require too much effort to visualize. You have an eight-year-old car, and looking at your personal...
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...
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.
Alkylation units allow for the production of premium gasoline grades, adding significant economic value to the refinery operation. These units are extremely susceptible to aggressive corrosion. Corrosion can lead to an HF (Hydrogen Fluoride) release, which can cause significant production loss and place the health and safety personnel and local community at risk.
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...
