A pipeline maintenance team is established to preserve the health and safety of both the public and the environment. In recent years, improving deliverability and efficiency has become increasingly important. In 2011, a U.S. government study found that roughly 69 billion cubic feet of natural gas was lost to the atmosphere, almost enough to meet the state of Maine’s gas needs for a year and equal to the annual carbon dioxide emissions of about six million automobiles.
Due to increasingly stringent industrial safety standards, regulatory standards and safety directives, there is an increased need for developing processes and equipment infrastructures that achieve best practices. In this blog, we explore some of the major trends impacting this shift.
Safety continues to be a major driver of the oil and gas market, with pipeline and refinery operators making compliance with the highest industry standards and regulations for safety a priority. A key part of starting an organizational pipeline safety program includes adopting basic principles of pipeline safety in your organization.
Brazil’s largest distributor of piped natural gas, Comgás, partnered with YZ Systems and its channel partner, EDC (Equipamentos de Controle e Commercial), due to an extremely challenging installation. The company provides gas distribution for 177 municipalities that together require an odorization rate between 16mg/Nm3 and 25mg/Nm3. This type of application required a company who could provide a truly reliable odorization solution and selected YZ Systems as the equipment of choice. The team came together to design and construct a natural gas distribution site with a massive capacity of 250.000Nm³/h at operating pressures between 17-35bar. The NJEX® 8302 odorant...
To better serve our diverse customer base, YZ Systems works with a number of distributors around the United States and Europe as well as the Middle East. This allows for our high-quality gas sampling and odorization equipment to be backed around the world by channel partners like Sanggul Emas Sdn Bhd (SESB).
