Optimize throughput of gas pipelines and facilities with intelligent software

R. Otto, Sensia Global

A drop of liquid. An ice formation. So small and yet so potentially costly and damaging to the operations of gas facilities and pipelines. Unwanted hydrates or liquids can clog pipes, reduce the process flow and damage equipment. Gas processing technologies depend on understanding the phase envelope of the process fluid to operate efficiently and safely. Process engineers implement their designs to manage the worst anticipated phase envelope, normally resulting in less-than-optimal throughput and unnecessary energy use for typical or normal operating conditions. To deal with these challenges, intricate calculations are needed and control actions must happen in real time. Most operators ad
