Combating Corrosion: Measuring Organic Halides in Crude Oil and LPG
30 November 2016

Sponsor: Metrohm

Corrosion in refining and petrochemical plants results in billions of dollars in annual maintenance costs. The safe processing of crude and natural gas into refined products requires all aspects of the petroleum industry to measure and control corrosion.

Organic halide-containing compounds present in refining and petrochemical processes have been linked to corrosion.  The industry guideline for organic halides in crude oil is currently set to less than 1 ppm and recent industry studies point to the need for a more precise method than the current ASTM method 4929 to measure organic chloride in crude oil.

Combustion Ion Chromatography (CIC) is an excellent technique to measure organic halides in crude oil and LPG and work is underway to develop an improved test method. This webinar will help you understand the corrosive effects of organic halide containing compounds and how CIC is used to measure these corrosion-inducing compounds in crude oil and petroleum products.

What you will learn:

  • Why it is important to measure organic halides
  • Choosing the right instrument and configuration to measure organic halides
  • Sample preparation and the influence on organic chloride measurement.

Who should attend?

  • Oil producers
  • Pipeline operators
  • Refinery analysts
  • Corrosion engineers

Unified Engineering - An Analyst Perspective on the Current and Future Direction of Simulation Technologies
20 October 2016

Sponsor: Schneider Electric

With the volatility of oil prices and much trepidation, many industrial process manufacturers are unwilling to invest in new capital intensive projects and facilities. The pendulum has swung toward optimization of existing facilities and "sweating the current assets".  New approaches, tools, expectations, and platforms are paving the way for the next-generation of process engineers. ARC Advisory Group will share current process simulation market dynamics,  trends and drivers impacting workers, engineers, and operations.

Adaptive Modeling for Shifting Process Conditions
11 October 2016

Sponsor: AspenTech

Operating conditions change. To maintain maximum profitability, APC applications must change with them. Due to differential challenges, the traditional method of step-test, model, and then deploy is burdensome, often insurmountably so. Fortunately, with AspenTech’s calibrate mode and the online adaptive modeling tools, inconsistencies between the plant and the model can quickly be identified, corrected, and deployed without additional step-testing or disrupting operations. Rather than exclusively utilizing gain-multipliers, the time-constant is updated as well, providing better dynamic controller behavior. With better dynamic control, the application more readily maintains steady-state targets and rejects disturbances, resulting in higher controller uptime and greater profitability.
