Abstract: Usually, when you install a regulator, everything works as it should, and you move on to the next project. It is unusual to have a pressure regulation problem, but you learn more by having a problem, and correcting it, than by never having a problem. I have been involved in the natural gas industry for 39 years. Early in my career, I was the junior engineer in one operating area of an LDC. I was given the task of correcting a regulator problem at a station serving a new, large industrial customer. I learned quite a bit during that exercise. I will discuss the technical correction to that problem later in this paper. But, I also learned: 1) gas engineers without much field experience dont have a good understanding of regulator station design. 2) most regulator station problems have occurred in the past, and will occur again in the future. 3) when you need an answer to an application problem, ask an old guy.
