Saulsbury awarded cryogenic gas processing, terminal expansion projects
Saulsbury Industries, a national, full-service EPC company, has been awarded construction contracts for the installation of a new cryogenic gas processing facility in the Permian Basin with a major oil and gas producer. This facility, designed with a base-rated capacity of 200 MMsft3d, will be Saulsbury's 63rd cryogenic processing facility over the last 15 years, totaling over 11 Bft3d of processing capacity. In conjunction, Saulsbury has also been selected to execute a major terminal expansion for the same client at a different location.
Saulsbury will be responsible for the turnkey construction of the processing facility that will include molecular sieve dehydration, cryogenic gas processing, refrigeration, residue gas compression, and all balance of plant equipment, utilities, electrical, instrumentation, and controls infrastructure. The terminal scope will include full construction services for the infrastructure supporting a major expansion to the existing storage capacity.
"We are extremely excited to be the selected partner for these expansion projects," said Jeremy Nelson, Vice President of Operations. "Long-term, repeat clients are core to Saulsbury's continued success and integral to our growth and position as the contractor of choice in the midstream oil and gas sector. This is a significant achievement for Saulsbury, and we look forward to providing another safe, high quality project in this challenging environment."
The gas processing/LNG sector is investing in new technologies to mitigate carbon emissions from both operations and its supply chain.
Industry Focus: Maximizing the performance of your ETRM system
-Teresa Kroh, Brad York
Energy trading and risk management (ETRM) systems are vital for the support of business processes associated with trading energy commodities such as crude oil, refined products, natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs) and electric power, as well as facilitating the movement and delivery of those energy commodities and associated risk management activities.
-Oz Rodriguez, Catriona Penman
More than 100 participating countries at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) signed the Global Methane Pledge, in which they agreed to take action to reduce methane emissions at least 30% by 2030 vs. 2020 levels.
Optimizing Gas Distribution: Accounting for Changeovers, Regulators, and More
Gas distribution systems are critical to the effective operation of many industrial facilities around the world. Despite the importance of these systems, however, opportunities to improve their performance and cost-effectiveness are often missed or misunderstood. Increasing changeover pressure may seem like a good way to improve system flow, for example, but it often does so at the expense of bottled gas. Adding regulators may help you control supply pressure, but it also adds cost to your system. So, how do you know what the ideal gas distribution setup is for you?
Attend this webinar to:
- Gain a basic understanding of the fluid dynamics that affect pressure control in gas distribution systems, learning to interpret flow curves and recognize phenomena like lockup, droop, and supply pressure effect (SPE)
- Learn how inlet pressure affects regulator performance and when to specify certain regulator types and configurations to effectively control gas system pressures
Understand the inherent trade-offs between gas utilization and flow capacity and how to select both the right changeover pressure and automatic changeover panel design for your operations.
