The goal of this paper was to examine refinery workers’ personal exposure to benzene and 1,3-butadiene and increase awareness of exposure conditions by collaboration with involved refineries. Exposure to airborne agents needs to be assessed in the personal breathing zone by the use of personal measurement equipment. Specific measurement devices for assessing personal exposure to airborne nanomaterials have only become available in the recent years.
This feature takes a look at the work being done by companies to improve corrosion inhibitor fluids and inhibition techniques for offshore projects. A wide range of corrosive elements and compounds from a variety of crudes has led to a renewed industry focus on corrosion and the effects it has on pipelines and vessels. As the world's supply of crude becomes heavier, many of the world’s oil producers will have to think more carefully about heavy crudes and the challenges they pose for processing, storage, and transportation. Semoga and Kaji fields experienced reservoir souring and suffered a history of calcium-carbonate (CaCO3) -scale cases before a proper scale-inhibition program was implemented. Problems with a free water knockout discovered continued scale issues, leading to investigation of the reasons.
What will 2020 look like for the oil and gas, energy, and petrochemical markets? Here are 10 observations from ADI Analytics that demonstrate just how global and complex the energy mix has become. ADNOC and CNOOC will explore multiple new opportunities for collaboration across the upstream and downstream sectors in the UAE and China.
The hunt for global alternatives to store crude oil includes offshore, global strategic reserves, pipelines, rail cars, and trucks. The US crude inventory grew by 74 million bbl since 13 March when the US declared a national emergency in response to COVID-19. Phillips 66 Partners Takes 50% Interest in $1.6-Billion Liberty Pipeline Project The transaction is expected to close in March. The Liberty Pipeline runs 700 miles between Cushing, Oklahoma and Guernsey, Wyoming. What will 2020 look like for the oil and gas, energy, and petrochemical markets?

After a planned acquisition of Goodnight fell through, private equity firm Tailwater Capital is boosting its total investment in the water midstream company to more than $500 million. Goodnight recently signed five long-term contracts with producers in the Delaware Basin and the Bakken. Calgary-based Pembina Pipeline Corp. has entered into agreements to acquire Kinder Morgan Canada Ltd. and the US portion of the Cochin Pipeline system from Kinder Morgan for a total purchase price of approximately $4.35 billion.
This paper presents a state-of-the-art review of scale-inhibitor-analysis techniques and describes how these techniques can be used to provide cost-effective scale management. Calcium sulfate (CaSO4) in the form of gypsum and anhydrite is one of the more prevalent evaporite minerals typically found in the carbonate rocks of the western Canadian sedimentary basin (WCSB).
Middle East could lose 15% of ethane-based ethylene supply in 2020 because of oil supply dynamics. The purpose of this paper is to examine coiled-tubing (CT) -stimulation and -logging technologies used in the timely project execution of one of Saudi Arabia’s largest field developments to enhance matrix-stimulation success in a cost-effective manner.
To help achieve its energy transition goals, BP has agreed to sell its global petrochemicals business to INEOS for $5 billion. The sale comes less than a month after BP said it would cut 10,000 jobs—or approximately 14% of its workforce—in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and as part of the company’s plan to shift to renewable energy, which includes its commitment to reducing its carbon footprint to net zero by 2050 or sooner. Under the terms of the agreement, INEOS will pay BP a deposit of $400 million and will pay a further $3.6 billion on completion. An additional $1 billion will be deferred and paid in three separate instalments of $100 million in March, April, and May 2021, with the remaining $700 million payable by the end of June 2021. BP said the sale also helps it meet its $15 billion target for agreed divestments a year ahead of schedule.
