In upstream oil & gas production, flow measurements are critical for determining the health and longevity of the producing and injection wells. Many technologies such as multiphase flow meters and differential pressure (DP) measurements can be used. In a Processing magazine article, Coriolis Flowmeters for Wet Gas Measurement, Emerson’s Justin Hollingsworth describes another alternative, Coriolis […]

Gas compression technology comes in many flavors including centrifugal, reciprocating, screw, and scroll. In a Hydrocarbon Engineering article, Playing it Cool, Emerson’s Mark McCormick shared how shale gas processing has increased the need for rotary screw compressors required in process refrigeration applications. Natural gas is composed of many components including heavier hydrocarbons such as propane, […]
