Restoring stability
Nancy Yamaguchi, Contributing Editor, explores why the Arabian Peninsula countries are central to oil market rebalancing.

Tried and tested
Matthew Martin, Honeywell UOP Callidus, USA, explains how a comprehensive test programme can help flare operators meet new regulations and reduce operating expenses.

Stacking up
Lenny Shaver, LumaSense Technologies, USA, outlines how infrared and pyrometer technologies can help to improve flare monitoring.

Taking control
Andy Shurtleff, Airgas, an Air Liquide Company, USA, and Herman Holm, Spectrum Environmental Solutions, USA, consider revisions to flare monitoring and control requirements for industrial flares.

A key to LNG
Doug Ducote, Joe Belling and Paul Shields, Chart Industries Inc., USA, explore how brazed aluminium heat exchangers optimise processes for natural gas liquefaction.

A world of opportunities
John Powell, Arup, USA, reports on how aboveground membrane LNG storage tank technology has benefitted two LNG terminals in Southeast Asia.

A controlled blend
M. G. C. Zoontjes and T. van der Maten, Malvern PANalytical, the Netherlands, explain how on-line multi-element analysis can result in accurate process and blending control.

Making a case for wedge flow measurement
Steve Gorvett, ABB Measurement & Analytics, UK, considers why wedge meters are a worthwhile choice for the measurement of viscous flows.

The future of gas detection
Prabhu Soundarrajan, Honeywell Industrial Safety, USA, explains how the latest IIoT-enabled technologies are pushing the boundaries of gas detection and monitoring, while also helping to increase productivity.

Delays on the line
Nicholas J. Clough and James McGinty, Orbital, USA, highlight the most common causes of uncertainty in measuring and analysing today’s gas compositions.

In the box or in situ?
Paul Lyon, Sergei Seleznev, Gleb Derevyagin and Alexander Derevyagin, Vympel, Russia, discuss the benefits of an in situ option for installing a hydrocarbon condensation temperature anaylser.

Acid dew point measurement
Daniel T. Menniti, Breen Energy Solutions, USA, outlines the development of moisture leak detection measurement systems for use in sulfuric acid plants.

Strike a balance
Alexandra Curtescu, Shell Global Solutions, and Gijs van Heeringen, Paqell B.V., the Netherlands, advise on how to comply with strict SO2 emissions while reducing CO2 footprint with the use of a tail gas unit.

Sulfur in surplus
Meena Chauhan, Integer Research Ltd, UK, provides an overview of the global sulfur market.
