SOGAT arrives in Abu Dhabi this month
A number of new technical innovations are to be announced at the event
The ADNOC Group will be hosting the SOGAT 2016 event in Abu Dhabi from March 20-24, where several new technical activities will be announced.
Demand for sales gas has remained resolutely high, despite the low oil price environment.
SOGAT 2016 is comprised of three separate entities, several training workshops, a 3 day international conference and associated exhibition.
Within the latter AMETEK will be launching for the first time in the Middle East, the next generation sulphur recovery tail gas analyzer. This new analyzer uses three intelligent diagnostic models to address process failure modes and is a vital component in the gas conditioning process.
Another first time exhibitor will be COMPEX LLC; part of Moscow based BPC Engineering, with their 14-year experience in the manufacturing, supply and installation of advanced gas treatment systems including rotary screw, reciprocating and centrifugal compressors, gas booster skids, liquid ring compressor packages and multi-phase hermetic pumps in modular design for oil & gas conditioning applications.
The conference will see new presentations on oxygen enrichment and its application in the upgrading of existing sulphur recovery units and in the design of large green field plant processing lean feed gases.
This presentation will be of great interest to potential Abu Dhabi gas expansion plans and will focus on the analysis of potential capital and operating cost savings of critical importance in the current business climate.
The dangers of sour gas are well known and local fields with their high, toxic H2S content are of real concern to the safety of operational NOC personnel.
The programme will feature an emergency response panel centered around new procedures of employing adequate respiratory equipment (RPE) given that a sizable number of ADNOC employees have facial hair, which together with their facilities operating with H2S in concentrations exceeding fatal concentration, demands that the RPE be effective and available to all.
