The following is the July 2017 instalment of the monthly forecast provided by the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
Gas Network Remains Key
Despite a limited oil pipeline network Malaysia’s natural gas pipeline network is extensive and set to grow.
Bringing Members Together
The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) is promoting the development of a Trans-ASEAN Gas Pipeline system (TAGP) aimed at linking ASEAN’s major gas production and consumption centers by 2020 through a network of gas pipelines with Malaysia’s extensive natural gas infrastructure and its location resulting in the country being a natural candidate to serve as a hub in the ongoing TAGP project, which currently has 2,250 miles in place of the proposed 2,800 miles of pipelines.
Pipelines in the Pipeline
Corrosion is one of the biggest problems faced by pipeline operators. There are several inspection and repair processes, such as pigging, to combat pipeline corrosion. This article assesses preventive methods such as coating and metalizing.
Real-time Gas Network Nears Field Trials
Networks to handle mixed-source gas with varying energy content in a lower-carbon world need to be cost-effective, flexible, safe and secure. An innovative project involving a major UK gas distribution network operator aims to pave the way for this to become reality.
A Coat in Time
Corrosion is one of the greatest scourges of the pipeline sector. Coatings are one of the most effective tools we have to keep this at bay. The following are some of the coatings being used currently.
Maintaining Deepwater Pipelines
Maintaining deepwater pipelines has its own particular brand of issues to deal with. Inaccessibility, harsh conditions and water pressure are some of the said issues. This article highlights some technology providers and their solutions to help maintain deepwater pipelines.
