Advancements In Trace Moisture Measurement Of Desiccant Dryer Output Reduce Various Operating Costs In Natural Gas Cryogenic Process
Author(s): Greg Lankford, Charles Bates, Dr. Xiang Sherry() Liu, Hsuhung (Steven)Huang , Kuanting Gary() Yeh
Abstract/Introduction:
Trace H2O measurement at desiccant dryer output is crucial for the natural gas processing plant. SpectraSensors TDL (Tunable Diode Laser) trace H2O analyzer has positioned itself as a most desirable analytic technique for this challenging application, due to its superior sensitivity, operation reliability, speed of response, low maintenance and immunity to vapor impurities. This paper describes the analyzer design, system configuration, calibration and validation. Field operation data fully demonstrated that SpectraSensors TDL trace H2O analyzer has enabled a natural gas processing plant to optimize their processes by reducing dryer regeneration frequency, extending molecular sieve bed life, energy savings, reducing various operational costs and preventing freeze up.

Advancements In Trace Moisture Measurement Of Desiccant Dryer Output Reduce Various Operating Costs In Natural Gas Cryogenic Process
Author(s): Greg Lankford
Abstract/Introduction:
*Extremely cold temperatures for separation of liquid products *Frozen water causes equipment problems downstream *Plants are known to freeze-up. Can shut down plant.-Costs the plant lost revenue-Disrupts the distribution chain upstream and downstream Requirement: Reliable measurement of sub-ppm H2Oin hydrocarbons at dryer outlet to support process control objectives or meet contractual requirements in both LNG and Gas Processing plants

Canamax Energy Finds Substantial Cost Savings And Increased Operations Understanding With Schematic Usage
Abstract/Introduction:
Canamax Energy(Canamax)is the poster child for lean and mean operations. As a junior, Calgary based production and exploration company their main focus is remaining cost-efficient and positioning themselves for success in a challenging environment.As a small organization,each individual wears many hats,a large reporting initiative such as EPAP often requiresan extra set of hands. A common problem in the oil and gas industry is an informational disconnect between field operations and head office. Canamax was no exception, they were spending large amounts of time trying to answer questions and solve simple problems. It often took three or four exchanges between those out in the field and the head office to arrive at the final answer.
