U.S. Industry Metrics

In 1H 2020, U.S. net natural gas exports averaged 7.3 Bft3d, or nearly 80% (3.2 Bft3d) higher than during 1H 2019. From January 2020 through June 2020, net LNG exports increased by almost 60% (Bft3d), net pipeline exports to Mexico increased by 4% (0.2 Bft3d), and net imports by pipeline from Canada declined by 12% (0.6 Bft3d) compared to 1H 2019. U.S. LNG imports in 1H 2020 were similar to import levels in 1H 2019, averaging 0.2 Bft3d. U.S. net natural gas exports are forecast to return to pre-COVID-19 levels by November 2020 and average above 9 Bft3d in the 2020–2021 winter. GP

Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants

Register Now

Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
