Reciprocating compressors receive and deliver gas in discrete slugs (or pulses) as the pistons move back and forth.
When addressing process controls, the immediate interest is to invest in advanced process control (APC) technology without knowing the performance and stability of complex wide primary (PID) control.

In the petrochemical industry, business leaders are continuing to push for new approaches to optimize technology applications without disrupting their operational targets and key performance indicators.
Full output has resumed at the Mongstad oil refinery in Norway, operator Equinor said, following a partial outage on July 12 due to a lightning strike near the plant.

Process vessels, also known as pressure vessels, deliver a critical function within oil and gas upstream operations. Subjected to elevated temperatures and pressures, these vessels are used to process hydrocarbon mixtures to remove corrosive materials from oil before transport. Linings are frequently used to mitigate corrosion inside process vessels and extend their service lives and maintenance cycles.
Shell has suspended loadings of Nigeria's Forcados crude oil due to a potential leak at the export terminal, a spokesperson for its local subsidiary, SPDC, said.
Equinor has evacuated some staff and reduced output at its Mongstad oil refinery on Norway's west coast after a lightning strike near the plant disrupted power supplies, it said.
Contaminated marine fuels from several suppliers led to fouled engines on about a dozen vessels operating from the U.S. Gulf Coast this spring, according to Lloyd's Register and marine fuel testing service VPS.
