Natural Gas Sweetening
Natural gas, as it is used by consumers, is much different from the natural gas that is brought from underground up to the wellhead. Although the processing of natural gas is in many respects more simpler than the processing and refining of crude oil, it is equally as necessary.
Ionic liquids, a class of neoteric solvents composed of large organic cations and organic or inorganic anions, that cannot form an ordered crystal and thus remain liquid at or near room temperature, are becoming one of the fastest growing “green” media for chemists and engineers, bridging academia and industrial interests and standing as a viable alternative for natural gas streams treatment.
Perfluorocarbons are a group of human-made chemicals composed of carbon and fluorine only. Perfluorocarbons are powerful greenhouse gases that were introduced as alternatives to ozone depleting substances. PFCs replace chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) in manufacturing semiconductors. They are also used as solvents in the electronics industry, and as refrigerants of some specialized refrigeration systems. In the 1960's, researchers discovered that there could be an alternative method for supporting injured lungs. They found that mice whose lungs were filled with an oxygenated saline solution could survive for several hours.
Petroleum is a naturally occurring, smelly, yellow-to-black liquid consisting of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons of various molecular weights and other liquid organic compounds, that are found in geologic formations beneath the Earth's surface.The name Petroleum covers both naturally occurring unprocessed crude oils and petroleum products that are made up of refined crude oil.
Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is a generic term for techniques that increas the amount of crude oil that can be extracted from an oil reservoir. EOR techniques are able to recover 30 to 60 percent or more of the reservoir's original oil.
A biorefinery is much like a petroleum refining system, except that renewable plant cellulosic materials (biomass) replace crude oil. As crude oil becomes limiting within the next 30 years or so, a biorefining technology will play a leading role to replace chemicals presently produced from fossil oil at the petroleum refinery.
Automation, Control & Monitoring
Automation or automatic control, is the use of various control systems for operating equipment such as machinery, processes in factories, boilers and heat treating ovens with minimal or reduced human intervention. Together with automation, monitoring allows the operator to follow in real time the signals of the processes and interact over the process.
Equipments Design & Development
Design, simulate, visualize, and develop equipments that meets time, cost and performance requirements is one of the most rewarding task for an engineering
Developing a web site for the Internet or an intranet can range from developing the simplest static single page of plain text to the most complex web-based internet applications, electronic businesses, and social network services.
