Application of Advanced Technologies to Enhance Refinery Capability for Processing Opportunity Crudes

Although processing crude of declining quality is a challenge, the risk can be mitigated through the use of a comprehensive study, analysis and treatment of high- risk areas. GE W&PT Technology and Product Application teams have together developed a comprehensive program containing a number of unique and patentable tools that are designed to scientifically monitor and control high temperature corrosion, developed new product for calcium removal and heavy crude oils demulsification. Implementing the program facilitates the processing of opportunity crude oils so that refiners can safely and reliably process opportunity crude oils and enhance their operating margins. Read More ›

Optimising the O & G Value Chain With PI

A PI Enterprise can reduce O&G value chain friction elements, reduce total cost of ownership, enable management of the tension between enterprise standardisation and site autonomy/ownership/ accountability, support strategic replacement of legacy applications and enable a organisational change “plug and play” capability.  Read More ›

Pressure Relief Valve (PRV) Monitoring Application

Used existing measurements to show when the process was not on, to add robustness to the technique. Acoustic measurements taken at scanning intervals may have resulted in missing leak indications. Need to investigate characteristics of acoustic emission to determine if it may increase robustness. Supporting evidence for acoustic could be 10 minutes old when temp indication is met, causing us to buffer acoustic voltage. Need more than one application/beta site to learn from. Read More ›
