GE Oil & Gas, Florence, Italy, has reported its compression technology has again been selected to help support one of China’s most important energy infrastructure projects.
US Natural Gas Corp., St. Petersburg, Fla., has reported that the company has recently acquired a newly rebuilt Knox Western compressor to be set at the company's West Virginia natural gas development project compressor station.
GE Oil & Gas, Florence, Italy, announced February 16 that its advanced compressor technology is minimizing liquefied natural gas (LNG) boil-off gas flaring at LNG berths at the Ras Laffan Port, Ras Laffan Industrial City in Qatar, by making productive use of the gas that boils off during loading of the LNG carriers.
Nevada-based Electra-Therm announced February 23 that its Texas distributor, Gulf Coast Green Energy (GCGE), just completed a 2,000-hour test run on an organic Rankine cycle (ORC) waste-heat recovery device enabling distributed power generation at natural gas compression stations.
Continuous improvements in power electronics and the availability of large frequency converters pave the way for large variable-speed drive systems to be considered as a main compressor-driver solution.
A novel method of predicting stress in valve springs can be used to increase fatigue life and improve compressor reliability.
With pressure time predictions, natural gas pipeline companies can optimize their systems by making adjustments as needed.
A new valve concept, developed under a GMRC program by Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) and co-funded by BP, uses electromagnetic actuators to control valve-plate motion and create a soft landing at both valve seat and guard.
Recent experiences with legacy equipment show that detonation, pre-ignition, and pre-detonation have different types of combustion.
