New sour gas management solutions will be showcased at the Sour Oil & Gas Advanced Technology (SOGAT) 2014 exhibition in Abu Dhabi
Celebrating its tenth anniversary, the event will feature a number of workshops focusing on a range of topics including ‘Contamination Removal’; ‘Amine Treating’; ‘Gas Compressor Selection & Testing’; ‘Sour O&G Process Optimisation’; ‘Sulphur Plant Operational Experience’; and ‘Sulphur By-product Supply Chain’.
According to event organisers Dome Exhibitions, the conference programme will begin by discussing the latest plans for sulphur recovery projects such as Abu Dhabi’s Shah and Bab facilities.
There have also been new additions to the conference programme, with topics now including ‘Sour Gas Engineering Management Planning’, incorporating ‘RBI’, ‘Resolving Processing Shutdown Issues’, ‘Overcoming in a Cost Effective Way the Negative Effects of CO2 in Sulphur Plants’ and ‘Ensuring Welding of Sour Gas Lines is Safe and Reliable’.
Given recent leaks with welding of pipeline joints on the Kashagan project offshore Kazakhstan, the latter technology practice is mandatory to avoid disaster and loss of human life and will be presented and also demonstrated by Magnatech at the exhibition, Dome Exhibitions said.
Exhibitors will also include CAMLOCK from the UK, who will be demonstrating the world’s first hazardous breathing apparatus; Filtech from China, who with its partners will show the benefits of how to optimise energy efficiency in amine units; and Energy Recovery Inc from the USA, who will be launching its IsoBoost solution in the region. The IsoBoost process technology can save up to 25 per cent of energy, thus ensuring lower operating costs, reduced emissions and enhanced productivity, Energy Recovery Inc said.
SOGAT 2014 will be held from 23-27 March at the Beach Rotana Hotel, Abu Dhabi.
