Tokyo Gas not considering to raise U.S. LNG purchase
Tokyo Gas Co is not considering raising U.S. liquefied natural gas (LNG) purchase volumes as it seeks to diversify procurement portfolio, its President Takashi Uchida told reporters.
The company has started receiving long-term U.S. LNG from Dominion Energy Inc’s Cove Point export plant in Maryland earlier this year, and it also has signed agreements to buy LNG from Cameron project in the United States.
Following the recent agreements to buy LNG from Mozambique and Canada, the company is beginning to fill up the room for required gas volumes in the 2020s, and that it would look to diversify procurement conditions further by seeking non-U.S. LNG supplies, he added. (Reporting by Osamu Tsukimori)
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.
