Velocys Plc successfully produced its first Fischer-Tropsch product at ENVIA Energy’s smaller-scale GTL plant in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, in early February. The products are fractionated onsite to produce premium wax, diesel and naphtha.

The fuels produced at the plant are expected to qualify under the Renewable Fuels Standard (RFS) and generate tradeable credits in the form of Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs). The operations team will now focus on ramping up production to full capacity and preparing for the performance test run of the plant.

Scanners improve pipeline integrity

After two years of successful pipeline inspection in the upstream sector, LaserStream LP is honing its applications for use in pipeline integrity management, using BEMIS scanners. These scanners can take millions of laser ID measurement points, and the data can be used to inspect for pitting, erosion, defects and mechanical wear. The scans also provide dimensional data, such as true ID and ovality. LaserStream recently executed its first pipeline integrity task. A pipeline specimen was scanned using a 12.25-in. BEMIS scanner. A critical pipeline section was removed from service, and dents were profiled.The left side of the scan shows a map of the internal diameter of the pipe, with length on the y-axis and circumference on the x-axis. The colors represent different radii. The right side shows the cross-section view, where a true circle is adjusted to measure the dent depth at its highest point.

EPC services for cryogenic unit

KP Engineering (KPE) has signed a contract for the design, procurement and installation of a 200-MMscfd cryogenic gas processing unit with compression for Targa Pipeline Mid-Continent WestTex LLC, a subsidiary of Targa Resources Corp. KPE will provide complete EPC services for the project, which includes the main processing unit, as well as the balance of plant items and associated infrastructure. The project is expected to be completed in 1Q 2018. The project is the latest in a succession of awards for KPE, which continues to expand its presence in the midstream sector. GP

The US East Coast will send out its first LNG exports in early 2018 as Dominion Energy’s Cove Point LNG export facility in Lusby, Maryland becomes operational.

The New LNG Imperative

Register Now

The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction. Attend this webcast to hear from Lee Nichols, Editor/Associate Publisher, Hydrocarbon Processing, Scott Allgood, Director-Data Services, Energy Web Atlas and Peregrine Bush, Senior Cartographic Editor, Petroleum Economist as they discuss the future of LNG and the application of Energy Web Atlas, a web-based GIS platform which allows users to track real-time information for every LNG project.
