In this webinar we will cover:
Monitoring vapor pressure is becoming increasingly important for facilities that process crude and condensate, including small battery sites, gathering terminals and refineries. Vapour pressure has a significant impact on the profitability of many processes, including NGL fractionation and midstream crude and condensate blending, and is one of the most common reasons for shipments to go off-spec. Improving control of the vapor pressure on a crude or condensate stream can improve its value by 10-20 cents/barrel for each additional 1 kPa of precision – an overall opportunity of several dollars per barrel for most facilities.
Current methods of measuring vapor pressure require significant time investment from operators to run the tests and/or to maintain the monitoring equipment. This makes it challenging especially for small facilities to run effective monitoring programs. In this webinar, we will show how to leverage your facility and analytical data to optimize your vapor pressure monitoring program using Validere 360. An optimal program allows you to get the best results – maximum revenue, fewest off-spec incidents – with minimal investment in money and operator time.
