Beijing Gas starts filling in Tangshan storage
Beijing Gas Group has started to fill natural gas into its gas storage facilities at the Tangshan LNG terminal, the government-backed Beijing Daily reported.
The facilities include two gas storage tanks with a capacity of 160,000 cubic metres each, and will be used as emergency gas supply to Beijing city, around 200 kms away.
The natural gas pumped into the storage tanks came from Beijing Gas’s first directly purchased LNG cargo, totalling 68,000 tonnes, or 152,000 cubic metres.
Beijing Gas plans to unload its second LNG cargo and store the gas in the emergency tanks in October.
Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants
Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases. In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels. Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature. This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
