Because it provides the energy and materials required for global development, the refining industry is critical to the world economy.
Lummus Technology announced that it has reached an agreement with Siemens Energy to acquire assets from their water solutions portfolio including intellectual property and copyrights, trade secrets, and research and development properties. The technologies address water and wastewater needs of the oil and gas industry using carbon adsorption, biological treatment and hydrothermal processes.
Valero Energy Corp said crews had responded to a fire on Wednesday within its 290,000 barrel-per-day Corpus Christi West refinery in Texas.

This work provides details on how optimized project management can help companies minimize greenhouse gas emissions in capital projects and their supply networks. As explained, this approach is a significant opportunity that can be capitalized to further reduce not only emissions but also the cost and duration of project delivery.

According to Löfsten, “the costs of maintenance are estimated to be between 15% and 40% of production costs.” Consequently, efforts to reduce such costs without compromising risk to equipment, personnel safety and environmental integrity are welcomed.
Often, facilities hesitate to invest in monitoring rotating equipment until the machine fails. By that time, there is no background information, such as vibration or temperature data, to help site engineers diagnose the machine’s failure. However, by implementing a remote monitoring solution on healthy equipment, users can set a baseline of machine health to gain essential insights when the machine begins to fail.
