Why Staged Gas Pressure Drop is Critical to Producers

  In natural gas production, managing the gas pressure drop is critical. If mishandled, these drops can jam up your system and cause downtime. One of the problems pressure drops cause is freezing pipes and valves due to the Joule-Thomson effect. Another risk when the pressure drops is loss of valuable condensate. How Oil Condensate

How to Read Oil and Gas P&ID Symbols

Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams—abbreviated P&IDs—are the schematics used in the field of instrumentation and control. Field techs, engineers, and operators use P&ID symbols to better understand the process and how the instrumentation is interconnected​. Most industries have standardized the symbols according to the ISA standard S5.1 Instrumentation Symbol Specification​. Some organization may also refer to P&IDs

How to Convert a Gas Regulator from Vent to Non-Vent

How to Convert a Gas Regulator from Vent to Non-vent

A back pressure regulator is a specific type of control valve that holds pressure on production vessels such as separators, treaters, and free water knockouts and releases upstream pressure when a designated set point is reached. When a gas back pressure regulator is operating correctly, it vents pressure off the diaphragm as it adjusts. However, some producers
