Asia faces its fears
Ng Weng Hoong, Contributing Editor, discusses how high oil prices, coupled with international military conflicts, are currently haunting Asia.

Reducing emissions at sea
Panos Koutsourakis, ABS, Singapore, explains why methanol as a marine fuel is one of the near-term solutions for reducing the maritime industry’s harmful emissions.

Software: driving the future of LNG terminals
Magnus Ulseth, Quorum Software, Norway, looks at the key role that software solutions have to play as LNG import terminals become more complex.

The role of compression in downstream decarbonisation
Megan Schaenzer, Michael Schulz and Dan Bissell, Siemens Energy, explain why compressors have such an integral part to play in decarbonising the oil and gas sector.

Everything’s under control
Alan Wong, Compressor Controls Corp. (CCC), Singapore, underlines the importance of correctly-sized and equipped recycle valves, and details a petrochemical plant user’s experience of replacing an uncontrollable compressor recycle valve.

The power of valves
David Swensen and Melissa Herman, MOGAS Industries Inc., USA, detail the company’s recent work at a greenfield refinery project in North America.

Hydrogen: the way of the future
As the world turns its attention to hydrogen as a primary energy resource, equipment manufacturers are gearing up to manage it. Richard Laukam, ValvTechnologies, and Tim Webb, Severn, discuss the pivotal role of valves in supporting a hydrogen economy.

Achieving high 3D printing standards
The American Petroleum Institute (API) recently published API 20S – one of the first standards to address the requirements for additive manufacturing in process applications. Brett Hofman, Emerson, details how it provides an essential first step to addressing quality and testing requirements.

Carbon capture (and the role of gas analysis)
Karen Gargallo, Servomex, UK, introduces the three principal carbon capture technologies, and explains the essential part that gas analysis plays in their efficiency.

A hybrid approach
Prashanth Chandran, Nathan Hatcher, Harnoor Kaur, Jeffrey Weinfeld and Ralph Weiland, Optimized Gas Treating, Inc., USA, present a new technology that offers reliable, predictive simulation of hybrid solvents.

Optimise to thrive
Richard Koeken, Fluid Components International (FCI), and Alessandro Esposito, Precision Fluid Controls, explain how flow meters can help refiners to optimise boiler air feed for sulfur recovery units (SRUs).

Automated integrity
John Musgrave and Michael Anderson, MISTRAS Group, USA, discuss the benefits of utilising automated radiographic testing (ART) scanning services to inspect assets and locate defects, while complying with environmental regulations.
