  1. Effects of Expansion Foam on Controlling LNG Vaporization Rate

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    With increasing consumption of natural gas, the safety of liquefied natural gas (LNG) utilization has become a challenge that requires comprehensive studies on risk assessment in the LNG facilities with mitigation measures. The rapid vaporization after an LNG spill generates a vapor cloud, which is...

  2. LNG Plant Inlet Facility - Design, Safety & Operability

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

  3. Trends in Olefin Plant Reliability-Related Production Loss, 1999-2011

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    Solomon Associates has conducted studies of the olefins manufacturing industry for more than 25 years. As part of these Olefin Studies, Solomon gathers and analyzes data on the duration of plant slowdowns (operating at reduced throughput) and plant shutdowns by cause. Reliability-related incidents...

  4. Advanced Modeling for Cryogenic Spill Risk Assessments of Floating LNG

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    The cryogenic spill risk assessment (CSRA) and cryogenic spill protection (CSP) plan are critical steps in the design of a floating LNG liquefaction facility, given the large quantities of cryogenic materials present and the potential for extensive damage to the facility in the event of cryogenic...

  5. Automation Solutions for Processing Light Tight (Shale) Oil

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    Opportunity crudes from shale are more readily available in North America with incentives on cost. However, these typically lighter crude oils don’t come without some processing challenges. Some of the challenges include high variability in API gravity, H 2 S entrained in the crude, paraffin waxes...
