Importance and Advantages of Updating Acidity in Ethanol Titrations
26 April 2018

Sponsor: Metrohm

Rapidly growing demand for Earth-friendly ethanol provides numerous opportunities to improve quality testing measures.  An increasing demand for high-quality ethanol creates an increased demand for better acidity testing methods. Titration is a common laboratory measurement used across many applications and industries but, is extremely helpful in providing quick results for ethanol acidity.  

Register for this webinar to hear from industry expert Kristy Moore of KMoore Consulting discuss fuel quality issues and best practices for increasing collaboration between renewable fuel and chemical producers.  You’ll also hear from Lori Spafford, Titration Product Manager, discuss the advantages of switching from manual titration to a dedicated analyzer for method ASTM D7795.  

Key learning objectives:
•    Acidity is a key performance parameter in ethanol specifications globally
•    Understand the measurement of acidity, recognize interferences
•    Understand advantages of updating titration method to D7795

Who should attend:
•    Ethanol and Gasoline scientists, quality managers
•    Anyone working in third party fuel laboratories
•    Logistics, Storage and Handling quality managers

Mexico's Unfolding Natural Gas Transformation
10 April 2018

The global energy industry has seen how the shale boom turned the US into a leading gas producer and exporter. Much of the recent development in the Americas natural gas/LNG sector has been concentrated in the US Gulf Coast region, which is the key energy hub for much of the world. But what about Mexico? During this 60 minute live webcast, Energy Web Atlas’ Brian Balboa, Research Coordinator, Peregrine Bush, Senior Cartographic Editor and Scott Allgood, Director of Data Services, will discuss the potential future of Mexico by addressing:

  • What does the current natural gas/LNG sector look like in Mexico?
  • What is the status of Existing, Planned and Under Construction Pipelines in Mexico?
  • And most importantly, what key factors should the industry be aware of?

Reduce Time and Cost by Accelerating Process Design: A Customer’s Perspective
27 March 2018

Sponsor: AVEVA

Do you want to improve employee efficiency and productivity? Equip your engineers with the best tools to effectively execute their process designs. Fluor, knowing the importance of getting the most from their employees and their technology, tasked Lei Lei Liu with modeling an intricate cooling water system in a new process simulator. In just weeks, with no previous training, she had built the model.

The idea behind this new tool, SimCentral Simulation Platform, is to replace multiple point solutions; allowing for seamless transitions between calculation modes. EPCs and operating companies alike can reduce time and cost by accelerating process simulation and design. In this webinar, Lei Lei Liu, will share how to maximize the benefits by using one simulation tool to do rigorous steady-state, hydraulics, and dynamic modeling quickly and efficiently in SimCentral Simulation Platform.

How O&G Companies can Show Measurable Impact on Business Performance through Sustainability Strategy
10 January 2018

Sponsor: Schneider Electric

The global economy wants energy that is clean, green, and affordable. For decades, the oil and gas industry (O&G) has reliably provided energy, especially as transportation fuels. However, this industry is pressured to be greener and safer, emit fewer pollutants, and become more socially responsible. 

Investors and financial institutions now use sustainability indexes to determine future investment options.  

Some of the top O&G companies are undertaking new strategies to make their oil “greener.”

This webcast reviews the concepts that the O&G industry can use to increase their sustainability performance with existing strategies and operations and be profitable in the near and long term.

Lessons from Incidents: Placing Best Practice Analysis at the Heart of Process Safety Management
13 December 2017

Sponsor: Process Systems Enterprise

Several major incidents involving flare and relief systems can be traced to a failure to recognize hazards and perform adequate analysis.

This webcast will use the incidents as examples to explain how industry guidance, such as API 521, and good engineering practices have been enhanced to prevent future accidents and promote inherently safe design. It will describe the best practice solutions you need to effectively manage process safety:

  • Key elements of pressure relief and blowdown verifications to ensure PSM compliance
  • Up-to-date approaches for assessing:
    • vessel survivability under fire attack
    • brittle fracture risks during depressurization
    • transient process behavior during relief events.
  • Minimizing capital expenditure without compromising safety

It will be of interest to hydrocarbon engineers, especially those with an interest in safety, flare simulation experts and managers with responsibility for asset and plant integrity.
