Pakistan: an emerging LNG import market
Rahil Pitafi, Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority (OGRA), Pakistan, considers the country’s progress towards becoming a player in the global LNG import market.

Behind the scenes
Sheikh Imran ul Haque, Engro Corp., Pakistan, explains the importance of bringing much needed LNG into the country.

Value drivers
High compression efficiency and a ‘driver agnostic’ approach are key to obtaining the best net present value for any specific liquefaction process. Patrice Bardon, Dresser-Rand, France, examines why.

Life in the balance
Mark Geldmacher, Nikkiso Cryo, USA, looks at the design and service requirements necessary for pumps operating in a liquefied hydrocarbon environment.

Test to impress
Barry Wilder, Severn Glocon, UK, shares standards and procedures that can boost the efficiency, effectiveness and safety of the cryogenic testing process for LNG valves.

Taking care of high pressure
Duncan Gaskin, Bestobell Marine, UK, looks at why increasingly high pressure valves are being demanded in the marine sector.

A golden future
Madhukar Puniani, Parker Hannifin, USA, discusses how new LNG and natural gas fuel system architecture is advancing the ‘golden age of gas’.

Breaking barriers
Osvaldo del Campo, Galileo Technologies, Argentina, considers the advantages of using compact LNG production and dispensing units in today’s small scale industry.

Detection protection
Ardem Antabian, General Monitors, USA, considers hazardous operations safety monitoring in LNG and CNG applications.

Safety first
Joaquim Pujol, Lloyd’s Register Consulting, UK, puts forward the case for using advanced 3D numerical tools for cryogenic risks in floating LNG applications.

In focus
The benefits of using LNG without the need for regasification are rapidly being recognised. Prankul Middha, GexCon, UK, analyses the benefits of using methods such as computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to assess the risk in this process to protect life, property and the environment.

Creating a complete picture
Christian Satorius, ARTA Armaturen- und Tankgerätebau GmbH & Co. KG, Germany, explains why a complete transfer system solution is required to best serve the LNG industry.

A breath of fresh air
Josh Kreisler and Lyn Himmelberger, Cryoquip, USA, outline the advantages of using ambient air vaporisers throughout the entire LNG market.

Sure sampling and analysis
Pierre Barere and Gilles Tissot, Opta-Periph SAS, France, examine how to reduce energy measurement uncertainty during LNG custody transfer, as the company progresses towards ISO 8943 compliance certification.

Lend and borrow
Joost Smits, Systems Navigator, the Netherlands, discusses how choosing the right commercial operating rules for an LNG import terminal can have a major impact on terminal performance.

Supporting an evolving industry
Stuart Barry, Bergen Pipe Supports Group, UK, discusses current developments in cryogenic support technology.
