EFM technology proves to be reliable and accurate. S. Green. Pipeline Gas J., February 1995, 222(2), 27--30.
Telemetry-based electronic flow meters (EFM) are recommended for gas distribution technology. By late 1996 a major gas distributions company in Houston expects to have 18,000 meter stations converted to EFMs. The estimated investment cost is $100 million to control 21,000 miles of gathering systems ...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Distribution technology rising to new heights. R. Wilton. Pipeline Gas J., December 1997, 224(12), 26--28.
Installation of natural gas distribution pipelines and meters in high-rise condominiums in New York is described. The concept of vertical subdivision is explained and the project opens up new opportunities for gas appliances. Servicing options are reviewed and they include central meter closet desig...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Fracture-stimulation technology for gas-storage wells. S.R. Reeves. JPT, February 1998, 50(2), 61--67 (5 pages).
Attention is drawn to the joint programme being sponsored by the DOE (and more recently the GRI) with industry to demonstrate application of new and novel-fracture-stimulation technologies in gas-storage fields across the US. The objective of which, being to advance deliverability-enhanced technolog...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Maintaining urban gas systems demands special technologies. T.F. Anglero. Pipeline Gas J., April 1994, 221(4), 37--39.
Innovative trenchless technology is used to repair a gas main in Brooklyn. The Tite Liner system for installing a polyethylene liner inside a 20 in. steel main operating at 15 psi is described. The liner pipe is radially compressed by about 7% and a pulley winch maintains the reduced diameter during...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Customer-owned utility profits from technology planning. J. Share. Pipeline Gas J., June 1998, 225(6), 36--45 (2 pages).
Operations of a customer-owned gas distribution company called Metropolitan Utilities District (M.U.D) is described. It serves 168 000 customers in Omaha. Cost-cutting operations reduce gas rates to 44 cents per therm compared with the national average of 62 cents per therm. Peak-sharing avoids gas ...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
Water and gas coning/cresting---a technology overview. A.K. Singhal. J. Can. Petrol. Technol., June 1996, 35(6), 56--62.
Fundamental problems with conventional wells are classified as sustaining oil rates at economic levels and handling/disposal of the effluent. Coning is explained and typical effects are described and illustrated. Oilfield practices used in coning situations are reviewed. Four promising techniques fo...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
New technology and products offered to help solve problems. L. Bullion. Pipeline Gas Ind., June 1995, 78(6), 53--57.
Recent advances in technology are recommended to operators of liquids and gas pipelines for solving problems and reducing costs. An Italian rotary expander mill that produces 16 in. to 24.5 in. seamless line pipe, and a `smart' flowmeter that simultaneously measures three variables are described. A ...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract

Fixed-bed technology purifies rich gas with H2S, Hg. E.F. Rhodes, P.J. Openshaw and P.J.H. Carnell. OGJ, 31 May 1999, 97(22), 58--63.
Details are given of the treatment of dense-phase natural gas with fixed-bed technology which has been proven effective and economic at the North Sea terminal for Central Area Transmission System (CATS). The central Graben development is described, and the dense-phase operation, testing, mercury rem...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
B M Drazga, Commercialisation of coal-to-liquids technology - cost savings and benefits, Petroleum Review. April 2007, p 14
In the supplemental fuel world, coal is emerging as an important source in view of its high life index values of 230 years in US, and its wide distribution globally in countries including China, South Africa and Japan. Advanced conversion technologies can gasify over 95% of solid coal to syngas. The...Availability: OnlineRecord type: Abstract
