Measuring the Pollution Surrogate

Measuring the Pollution Surrogate

Discharge of produced water is strictly regulated, although discharge standards may vary from location to location. The quality of produced water is most widely expressed in terms of its oil content, which acts as a “surrogate” for other pollutants. As a result, measurement of oil in produced water concentration becomes an important subject, not only for regulatory compliance monitoring but also for operations, as well as data collection for the development of future government regulations and corporate environmental policy. To calculate the total amount of...

Temperature and Humidity Monitoring

Temperature and Humidity Monitoring

Europe’s renewable energy targets and diminishing natural gas resources require the diversification of energy sources to include non-conventional gases, such as biogas, methane and hydrogen. These gases have different chemical and physical properties to traditional natural gas and need to be well characterised before entering the gas grid or transmission networks and during custody transfer between different commercial operators. This is crucial to ensuring safe operation and enabling fair trade and environmental decision-making. Gas pipeline networks are highly complex transmission and distribution systems used to...

Drowning in Plastic

Drowning in Plastic

The reality is, the problem is enormous. The EU states that if no action is taken, ‘by 2050 there will be more plastic than fish in the oceans’1 – a fact which concerned Technology Innovation Manager Dr Rebecca Sykes to such an extent that she decided to put her job at assurance business Lloyd’s Register (LR) on hold and do something about it. Cue the launch of Topsail Adventures’ Clean Seas Odyssey – a four-month multidisciplinary discovery and education programme which involved a 1,000-mile sailing...
