Is the gas delivery system you’re looking at able to meet your power generation needs: a hydraulic engineer’s perspective

May 28, 2014

The hydraulic characteristics, and system response to demands and supplies, of natural gas pipelines are substantially different from the flow characteristics of electric transmission systems. Pipelines must incorporate consideration of packing and drafting phenomena into their analyses. This is especially true for gas consumed in conjunction with electrical generation requirements, which typically exhibit sudden and substantial demands. These demands can cause pressure problems in the gas pipeline.

The pipeline controller must take this demand nature into account when planning pipeline operations, and should perform careful hydraulic analysis to determine the adequacy of his or her system to meet demands, the impact these demands have on both short- and long-term operations, and the environmental and safety issues involved.

This paper discusses the flow characteristics of natural gas pipelines, the phenomenon of line pack and subsequent draft, and related operational issues. Both steady-state and unsteady-state (transient) flow characteristics are covered, and some typical techniques for dealing with power generation demands are discussed.

Plant Design for Lean Construction – at your fingertips

May 6, 2014

One area which can provide improvements to your adoption of Lean principles is the application of mobile tools to streamline the
business processes of Engineering & Design. Make your decision makers and value-adding contributors from all departments and
disciplines more effective and eliminate wastage by avoiding the delays in the design review and approval process.

New technologies, more powerful mobile operating systems and powerful hardware can be employed to improve the availability
of design decision makers and can provide a way to differentiate your business by reducing reworks in design, communicating more
effectively across the design community and monitoring design progress to a broader team. As a new generation of engineers
emerges into the senior decision-making posts, more demands will be put on IT solutions to provide simple, business-focused mobile
solutions to meet their needs.

U.S. Contractor Group Benchmarking Reports

Dec 9, 2013

The 2013 Contractor Group Benchmarking Reports provide HSE performance metrics compiled from over seven billion work hours of activity within nine capital-intensive industries.
Organizations can use these specific reports to benchmark their HSE performance against that of their industry peers by NAICS Code and by ISN Work Type.

The key performance indicators collected and presented for each industry include:

· Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR)
· Total Nonfatal Recordable Incident Rate (Nonfatal TRIR)
· Days Away, Restricted or Job Transfer Rate (DART)
· Fatality Rate per 100,000 Employees
· Total Number of Fatalities
· Incident Severity (In Days)

This report is brought to you by ISN.
