Chevron to supply LNG to Japan's Hokkaido Gas
Chevron Corp's unit will supply LNG to Japan's Northern Hokkaido prefecture, via a deal with Hokkaido Gas Co Ltd, the oil major said.
Chevron U.S.A. will supply about a half million tons of LNG over a period of five years starting April 2022 to Japan-based Hokkaido Gas, the company said in a statement.
The second-largest U.S. oil producer said its partnership with Hokkaido Gas will broaden its customer base in Japan, a market that is foundational to Chevron's LNG business.
The deal enables Chevron in "diversifying energy solutions and advancing a lower carbon future in the Hokkaido area," said John Kuehn, president of Chevron Global Gas, a division of Chevron U.S.A. (Reporting by Juby Babu in Bengaluru; Editing by Shailesh Kuber)
Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants
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.
