The quest for plant availability: Achieving improved compressor reliability and efficiency in downstream operations
Plants in the downstream industry require a great degree of operational availability, equipment reliability and efficiency: These factors are crucial for end users, as thousands of complex and intricate processes are operating in parallel – many of them are driven and safeguarded by compression technologies.
Uniformly, reliability is a universal maxim, and this holds particularly true for handling and compressing challenging gases processed in such plants. In fact, there is a direct, vital link between the reliability of compressor equipment designed for and used in these processes and the availability of the plant.
With a focus on different chemical/petrochemical, syngas and LNG applications our speaker Ulrich Schmitz will introduce to the listeners how centrifugal compression technologies such as integrally geared can be designed and employed reliably to perform the key process challenges of the industry, while also contributing to an efficient operation.

Corrosion Control for Gas Treating Amines: Technology Leads to Increased Amine Unit Efficiency
Accelerated basin drilling activities combined with increased fugitive gas emission capture technologies have increased trace oxygen levels in midstream natural gas. Oxygen present in concentrations even as low 30-50 ppm will cause costly corrosion-related problems in plant operations and processing equipment. One area in the plant most affected by oxygen is the amine unit. Oxygen will degrade MDEA-blended amines to corrosive amino acids and heat-stable amine salts.
Learn how a new technology from BASF combined with innovation from Nalco Water can increase amine efficiency and reduce costs associated with corrosion. This new technology will inhibit the degradation of amines from oxygen attack and control corrosion in process gas, while stabilizing the amine from degradation into bicine and other heat-stable amine salts. Together with Nalco Water’s real-time amine corrosion control program, have been proven to both mitigate oxygen degradation of amine and reduce the overall corrosivity of amine units.

Best Practices in Supporting Front Line HPI Operations Remotely in Response to Covid-19
To ensure employee safety, HPI companies had to quickly pivot to a remote support model with many subject matter experts (SMEs) and engineering staff working remotely supporting front line, sequestered critical operations and field operators.
What are the best practices and lessons learned from this new remote operational support model? What have been technologies and work processes that are enabling effective and efficient remote operational support? Is this the “new norm” going forward even when the impact of Covid-19 abates? If not, how will remote support of critical operations be changed?
If this topic and questions are of interest to you and your organization, please attend this special HPI webinar with a panel of leading industry customer experts who will discuss their perspectives. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions for the panelists.

A New Approach to Large Medium Voltage Drives
By attending this webinar, you will learn the benefits of using a single-channel, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) solution for applications above 9,000Hp with operating voltages from 11kV to 13.8kV. We will explore a VFD solution that does not require a step-up output transformer but still provides maximum control, environmental and motor flexibility to the end user. We will also discuss how to provide maximum reliability using power cell redundancy and the removal of water cooled components. The topics covered in the webinar include:
•A brief review of the multi-cell M2C topology
•A review of the physical implementation and the advantages it offers to the end user
•A presentation of the various implementations and ratings available for use on typical pump, compressor and fan applications.

The New LNG Imperative
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.
