With these accidents, has refining internationally fallen sub-standard in terms of safety? Such a question is likely best addressed by examining the existing HPI standard.
Especially when handling hydrogen, reciprocating compressors must provide ruggedness, operating flexibility and energy efficiency at pressures up to 3,000 psi (200 bar).
The safe warehousing of hazardous chemicals is a design challenge in chemical and petrochemical projects. A methodology is provided for designing a safe warehouse, and a case study shows the high level of analysis and integration required.
Processors should instead grasp some understanding of the costs and benefits by asking themselves: “How much will these changes really cost, and what’s in it for me?”
KBR has formed an alliance to sell the exclusive license for JNC Corp.’s PVC process technology, which it inherited from CHISSO Corp.’s business, a pioneer in the Japanese chemical industry.
Generating N2 on-demand is a sustainable and energy-efficient approach.
To consistently achieve pacesetter results on plant shutdowns and turnarounds, it is imperative that companies have a systematic turnaround management process (TMP).

Engineers and designers are highly skilled individuals. Forcing them to enter design changes using tables, forms and spreadsheets is unproductive and uneconomical, and it increases the likelihood of human error—this is the way that most instrumentation software systems currently work. For too long, software vendors have denied engineers and designers the simple practicality of a graphical visual engineering interface with “drag and drop” capability and inbuilt intelligence, ensuring changes are automatically replicated into all the associated data and databases.

Should the US allow exports of crude oil? (At present, US companies can export refined products derived from crude but not the raw crude itself.)
