Taking in Account Measuring Errors of Volume Conversion Devices in Measuring of the Volume of Natural Gas

Taking in Account Measuring Errors of Volume Conversion Devices in Measuring of the Volume of Natural Gas

In order to measure standard volumes of natural gas we use volume-conversion devices (VCDs) or correctors. The European standard EN 12405-1 specifies the requirements and tests for the construction, performance, safety and conformity of VCDs associated with gas meters. VCDs are used to convert measurement flow, temperature, pressure and gas composition under operating conditions into base conditions. Gas-volume conversion devices consist of a calculator and a temperature transducer, or a calculator, a temperature transducer and a pressure transducer that are locally installed. On the basis of this standard we separate VCDs into type 1 and type 2. Type 1 VCDs are complete instruments, while type 2 VCDs are made of separate elements. The measuring errors for type 1 VCDs are determined for three different temperature ranges and for five different pressures. With the intention of determining the detected quantity of natural gas as accurately as possible, this article introduces the possibility of using measurement errors that are obtained by the national verification procedure. With the European MID (Measuring Instrument Directive 2004/22/EC) the maximum permissible error for type 1 and type 2 VCDs is ±0.5 %. Using the suggested methods of implementing measurement errors in this article, we can meet the MID requirements for any type 1 and type 2 VCDs, the estimated measurement uncertainty, in addition to the 1/3 tolerable measuring errors, also takes into account the measurement uncertainty from the approximation of the proposed method.

Development of a compressed natural gas (CNG) mixer for a two stroke internal combustion engine

Development of a compressed natural gas (CNG) mixer for a two stroke internal combustion engine

The existing four stroke engine CNG mixers are usually not properly refined and optimised to enable good air fuel mixing. In addition, the efficiency of the current mixer design is also an issue as it is designed for simplicity which only offers practicality but lack in efficient air flow performance throughout the engine speed. Therefore, a straight forward conversion is not possible.

The catalytic combustion for natural gas

The catalytic combustion for natural gas

decomposition at high temperature. This deduction is based on the fact that palladium oxide is more active than palladium metal in the methane combustion and is decomposed to palladium metal at high temperature [2]. On the other hand, both conversion profiles at the upward and downward tests on the Pd catalyst with titania loading [Ti(10)–Pd(2)/KIT-1] are nicely coincident. There is no decrease in the activity at downward test, indicating that thermal stability of the Pd catalyst is significantly improved by titania loading. The decomposition of palladium oxide is suppressed with the interaction between titania and palladium. The hydrogen uptake on Pd catalyst varies with the oxidation state of palladium. Additional hydrogen is required to remove surface oxygen of palladium oxide compared to palladium metal. The amount of hydrogen uptake of the Pd catalysts with titania loading and the dispersion of palladium obtained from hydrogen uptake are summarized in Table 1. The dispersion of palladium on the Pd catalyst increases with titania loading, indicating the retention of palladium oxide on the titania-loaded Pd catalyst. Titania inhibits the reduction of palladium, resulting in the improvement in the stability of palladium oxide. Titania loaded on mesoporous material by liquidphase reaction of titanium alkoxide is dispersed on pore wall

There is one opportunity in which government of Indonesia can intensify the conversion, which is using CNG for motor vehicle to replace Premium gasoline. In August 2012, Premium gasoline consumption in Jakarta topped 1.41 million kiloliters, 37.4 percent more than the government's allocation of 1.03 million kiloliters for the month, according to state energy firm PT Pertamina. The subsidised Premium gasoline is sold at 4,500/l at pmp. IN the $100 /BBL crude oil FOB (free on board) price , Pertamina has reckoned that the full cost breakeven price is circa 8,000 / liter, or Indonesia government is subsiding 56% of fuel cost. Imagined for 1.41 kilo liter at IDR 3,500/leter, that was a sudidy of IDR 4.9 tillion or US$519 million. If governemnt can use natural gas through an intensive development program with higher incentive to oil and gas players, the subsidy can be elimated. The way is to convert the Premium gasoline users (four wheel car to start with) to use CNG, compressed natural gas.

Legal framework governing the carriage of liquified natural gas (LNG) within coastal water

Legal framework governing the carriage of liquified natural gas (LNG) within coastal water

Law is a reflection of the balance needs, the requirement of the coastal transportation of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) demand at the moment it is passed. Therefore an extraordinary attention needed focusing largely on the safety and security of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) of the hazardous chemicals transported by marine transportation at commercial facilities near populated areas is required. As the nation Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) facility policies getting develop and mature, there is no special framework for the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) coastal transportation. In response to the overall safety and security environment, it is likely to seek a coastal water legal framework and a broader understanding of hazardous chemical marine shipments and efforts to secure them.

Electricity Market and Its Risk Management in Nigeria

Electricity Market and Its Risk Management in Nigeria

Abstract: This paper is on the development of adequate mathematical model of electricity price via Fourier series. Fourier series is the representation of a function as an infinite series in sine and cosine terms. Our choice of Fourier series model for electricity price is as result of its volatility, fluctuation trends of hydro flow and poor market designs and we use actively- traded natural gas to hedge against electricity price in Nigeria. The natural gas prices are volatile but do not have a clear seasonal pattern, thus eliminating natural gas price volatility through hedging substantially reduce the electricity price, this development of logical mathematical frame work in the form of hedging tools assures an investor of his or her safety in the power sector.

Studying Simultaneous Injection of Natural Gas and Gasoline Effect on Dual Fuel Engine Performance and Emissions

Studying Simultaneous Injection of Natural Gas and Gasoline Effect on Dual Fuel Engine Performance and Emissions

According to the Global Fuel Crisis, it seems necessary to use alternative fuel instead of gasoline. Since the natural gas is cheaper, have higher frequency than gasoline and less pollution, it is a suitable fuel. Many efforts have been done in order to replace gasoline with natural gas. One of the methods is to inject natural gas and gasoline fuel simultaneously and to use the benefits of both fuels. The purpose of this paper is studying natural gas and gasoline blend effect on engine power, torque and emissions. The simulated model was validated in different engine RPMs for gasoline and natural gas, were separately injected into the engine at full load condition. The results of simulation was had good agreement with experiments. The results show that by natural gas and gasoline Simultaneous injection power and torque have been reduced. NOX, HC and CO2 Pollutants change periodically, but their production level is generally lower than gasoline mode, but the CO pollutant increases.

A Review of Energy and Environmental Policy for Offshore Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminals

A Review of Energy and Environmental Policy for Offshore Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Terminals

national security and a decrease in federalism, state theory could also be supported but appears not to be as strongly associated. Energy industry executives were requested to testify before Congress and work with the National Energy Policy Development Group (NEPDG) to increase government and corporate cooperation for energy development. The policy tactics of the Bush administration focused on centralizing policy formation and streamlining the approval and implementation process. This increases the influence of capital while limiting access to the democratic process. The results show an increase in profits at the expense of the public and the environment. Following the terrorist attacks, national security has been added to the equation pitting the economy against the environment. The policy process which created offshore liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals shows that an adequate, constant, and secure energy supply is seen as an absolute necessity for economic development and national security. Democratic access and environmental concerns are secondary to economic and security needs under the Bush administration.

Engine Performance Test On Ngv Vehicle

Engine Performance Test On Ngv Vehicle

Compressed Natural Gas is composed primarily of methane (CH4) and other heavier hydrocarbons such as ethane, propane and butane and also has significant quantities of carbon monoxide, nitrogen, helium and hydrogen. Natural gases form from the beneath of the earth when plant and animal matter are trapped under the solid rock under tons of pressure for millions of year. Due to its lower density characteristic, CNG will float above the other trapped substance such as crude oil and water.

multi-collector mass spectrometer with high precision isotope ratio performance, which is equipped with a high sensitivity ‘Nier’ type gas source and a low volume static vacuum analyser. NGX is characterized by a series of fixed collectors (mix of Faradays and Multiplier) that can be configured during manufacture. The collector array of the NGX at Lancaster University includes nine Faraday cups in fixed positions (H1-H4, AX, and L1-L4) and one ion counting electron multiplier (L6). The Faraday cups are denoted as H1, H2, H3, H4, AX, L1, L2, L3 and L4. H values represent high mass cups, AX represents the axial cup and L values represent low mass cups. L6 denotes electron multiplier. These fixed position Faraday cups are configured to enable a simultaneous measurement of all nine Xe isotopes whilst permitting all other noble gases such as He to be analyzed in peak jumping mode. The NGX operates at an accelerating voltage of 8KV ensuring high sensitivity and enhanced mass resolution (resolution > 600). This resolution is sufficient to resolve hydrocarbons and many other interfering species from the centre of the peaks of interest

Natural gas demand in Turkey

Natural gas demand in Turkey

The most outstanding outcome from the comparison is the fact that there is a substantial difference between current official projections and those made in 2002. As can clearly be seen in Table 7, official projections made in 2002 not only extremely overestimated demand but have also been extensively modified within just a few years. For instance, official projections in 2002 predicted 2007 natural gas demand as 47.31 bcm, but it turned out to be 35.06 bcm, meaning that official figures overestimated demand by 34.9% in that year, which is an absolutely unacceptable deviation within such a short period of time. Probably to correct for such intolerable variations, official projections have been reduced by 24.64% for the year 2008. Moreover, some argue that the official natural gas projections have overestimated natural gas demand to justify the construction of new power plants to use excess amount of natural gas [35]. Here, the reasons for why past forecasts were so wrong in Turkey could not be enquired as the method used to develop these forecasts has never been exposed to public.

The process of liquefied natural gas

The process of liquefied natural gas

The feed gas enters from the bottom of the MEA scrubber and fl ows from the bottom up through the fl oat valve tray in contact with the reverse fl ow of the amide solution. The poor amine solution absorbs the acid gas and the carbon dioxide reacts with the weak base in the solvent to form the weak bond Acid salt. At the top of the column, the purge gas is recovered by means of four additional trays, which are washed with water. The purifi ed natural gas from the top of the tower contains 50 x 10 books of carbon dioxide and 40 ° C of saturated water. The rich amine from the bottom of the scrubber is returned to the stripper and regenerated by heating the oil and the cooler. The carbon dioxide is Separation and purifi cation of the poor amine solution back to the scrubber. To reduce the amount of acid A in the acid gas at the top of the stripping tower, the top of the column is provided with a water wash. The acid gas at the top of the column is cooled by the air cooler, and the gas and condensate tank separation, acid gas sent to the torch system emissions.

Zeolite as natural gas adsorbents

Zeolite as natural gas adsorbents

Moreover, the high heat of zeolite adsorption and ability to hydrate and dehydrate while maintaining structural stability has been found to be useful in various heat storage and solar refrigeration systems (Frost and Sullivan, 2001). Gas on solid adsorption is an inherently safe and potential high energy density gas storage method that could be more energy efficient than chemical or compressed gas storage. Consequently, as an alternative, encapsulation of gas in microporous media could be envisaged (Nishimiya et al., 2001). Reversible occlusion of gases in zeolites is a well-known phenomenon. The working principle is that the guest molecules are forced, under elevated temperatures and pressures, into the cavities of the zeolite host. Upon cooling to room temperature or below, gas is trapped inside the cavities. It can be released again by raising the temperature. Thereinafter, with the increase of zeolite stability by metal oxide dispersion, gas storage capacity or amount of
