Bring your own gas station to remote sites

When there’s no gas station for a thousand miles, now you can bring your own. SEI Industries Ltd. recently launched its new GO-Station fuel modules, built inside ISO containers, and capable of providing everything needed to receive and transfer fuel from any bulk fuel storage system.

The concept is simple – provide a controlled, protected environment to house pumping, filtration, metering and dispensing equipment.

Make it tough, compact and portable so it can be shipped by land, sea or air. Design it to withstand remote locations and engineer it to be compatible with diesel fuel, jet fuel or lube oils (future models will also allow gas).    

“The first three GO-Station units are currently in various stages of construction and are expected to be commissioned by the end of the year at an undisclosed remote mine site,” says Paul Reichard, remote site division manager at SEI Industries. “The GO-Station is ideal for remote operations and an innovative next step when it comes to permanent, safe refueling systems.”

All controls are explosion-proof and mounted within an onboard electrical room for easy access. Containers are insulated with doors and ports for connection to fuel lines and power. Stainless steel piping and valving is used to interconnect the modules.

Fire suppression systems and spill protection features are built-in. Multiple dispensing units are accessible by roll up doors with retractable hose reels to provide bulk transfer or refueling of vehicles, tanker trucks or lube trucks.

All components are built on modular skids that can be easily moved for service or replaced, if the need arises. Explosion-proof lighting is standard and area explosion-proof heating is available as an option as are automated tank monitoring and fluid controls.

    The Environmental Product Group was originally developed to support the products used within the Remote Site group. Today it manufactures secondary containment, hazardous liquid spill response and site remediation equipment that can be used in conjunction with SEI primary containment and transpiration tanks or in virtually any situation where hazardous liquids are used.

Improve metal machining productivity with new long-life cutting fluid

 Coolcut S-50 soluble cutting fluid.

New Coolcut S-50 soluble cutting fluid from Walter Surface Technologies will improve the life of cutting tools and reduce heat buildup and friction on work pieces, even in tougher applications and on hard-to-machine metals. “Special EP additives in the liquid will provide extra lubricity in order to cut materials such as high tensile steel and stainless steel, and titanium, as well as other metals like aluminium and copper alloys,” says Olga Ivanysenko, Associate Product Manager, Environmental Solutions, at Walter Surface Technologies. “The fluid forms a very stable emulsion and will increase feed, cutting speed and production, so manufacturing shops can perform more cuts, faster, all while ensuring better tool life and smooth operation, without having to change liquid.”

New Shell Rotella engine oils offer improved technology for hard working vehicles

Shell Rotella T4 Triple Protection and Shell Rotella T5 10W-30 Synthetic meet the new API CK-4 service category for diesel engine oil.

New Shell Rotella T4 Triple Protection and Shell Rotella T5 10W-30 Synthetic Blend have been developed to meet the new API CK-4 service category for diesel engine oil. Nearly a decade has passed since the last diesel engine oil category, CJ-4, was developed and the standard has lasted well beyond the life of the typical engine oil category. The American Petroleum Institute (API), working with engine manufacturers and oil makers, has completely redesigned heavy-duty engine oil specifications to meet the needs of current and next-generation engines. This has resulted in two new categories - API CK-4 and API FA-4.

Flexible cylinder hone plays critical role for oil and gas maintenance work

Small, abrasive globules mounted to flexible filaments are the key to how the Flex-Hone works. It is available in many sizes and abrasive types and grits.

In the oil and gas industry, ongoing maintenance is often required to remove rust, corrosion and other accumulated material from the inside diameter (ID) of valves, pumps, piping, diesel engines, motors, natural gas compressors and other large bore equipment. Failing to do so can have severe consequences including reducing equipment service life, causing unplanned shutdowns and degrading performance.

Ceramic membrane filtration of produced water for oil and gas operations

Figure 1.

Whether it is for disposal or reuse, produced water treatment has become a major focus in both the water and the oil and gas industries during the past decade. Ceramic membranes, which were developed more than 30 years ago, are becoming an important technology for produced water treatment. In fact, it is becoming evident that these membranes offer some of the best values in the emerging areas of water management for the upstream oil and gas industry, as well as in refineries.

Leak detection on produced water pipeline networks

Water is considered a byproduct of oil and gas production and must be carefully managed. This water is usually referred to as ‘produced water’ and is the largest volume waste stream associated with oil and gas production. Because produced water was viewed as a waste by product historically, the most commonly practiced management strategies were aimed at disposal, rather than beneficial use.

Simplifying safety procedures during planned shutdowns

Development of safety plans surrounding confined space and other situations can be effectively developed by outsourcing safety programs to independent companies.

Planned STOs (shutdowns, turnarounds and outages) are often scheduled for preventative maintenance and new equipment installation that must be performed to keep a plant running and in regulatory compliance. To minimize production downtime, this work must be completed within a very tight time frame. As such, STOs are often feats of engineering, planning and coordination – work that begins many months, even years, before the event.
