Nothing Written in Stone Regarding Oil and Gas Supply/Demand
 
A forecast from The McIlvaine Company on the oil, gas, shale, and refining markets notes that "the picture changes day by day." It details six developments that threaten to alter previous forecasts: turmoil in the Middle East; uncertain gas supply from Russia; regulations governing flaring (a new rule in North Dakota is called out) and green completion; plans in China to use synthesis gas derived from coal; the move by some countries to divert their gas supply from large LNG plants to small plants; and the growing trend toward LNG-fueled vehicles. A table shows McIlvaine's 2025 forecast of China's gas consumption by source.

Certified: Reverse Pump Energy Recovery
 
Excess pressure and flow within gravity-fed water pipelines can be converted into clean energy. Contributing to the cause are pumps recently certified by the National Sanitation Foundation for use as turbines. They're ready for energy-recovery duty in pipelines delivering drinking water, and in food-processing and pharmaceutical plants.

No Wining Over Wastewater Treatment
 
As wine production has soared at a California vintner, so has its capacity to treat wastewater — up to 300,000 gal/day. Pumps & Systems details the triplex lift station (three submersible pumps operating in parallel) tasked with moving effluent through the process. Highlighted are the key parameters governing pump selection, and a report on the project's success.

Steelmaker Bids Farewell to Steam Ejectors
 
At an Italian steel manufacturer, an aging steam ejector is out and a new mechanical degassing system is in. The star performers are dry-screw vacuum pumps supporting multistage mechanical boosters. Results are impressive — lower running costs, higher pumping speeds, more predictable maintenance, and a reduced environmental impact. They foretell a trend among steelmakers toward mechanical vacuum systems.

Pitot Tube Pumps Primed for Pressure
 
The operations manager of a waste disposal company boasts here of the benefits of using high-pressure pitot tube pumps, claimed to have "changed the way high-pressure liquid is generated in centrifugal pumps." Among the benefits is the absence of pulsation that can cause vibration damage, "eliminating the need for constant maintenance and the accompanying downtime."

Well Surveillance on Tap in Texas
 
Coming soon to an oil and gas exploration project in Cherokee County, TX, is rod-pump control technology aimed at reducing pump operating costs and increasing production. The pump control is noted for its ability to gather and analyze performance data and identify and immediately rectify any problems. The end result: quick corrective action.

Warning: Don't Understate Frictional Head Loss
 
Engineer David L. Russell, P.E., writing in Modern Pumping Today, details the two most common formulas pump-and-piping-system designers use to calculate frictional head loss. He then simplifies the choice by stating that one — the Hazen-Williams formulations — leads to understating piping losses. The preferred formula: Darcy-Weisbach, using a Moody diagram.

Impeller + Seal = a Sweet Solution
 
Empowering Pumps serves up this tasty tale of a UK sugar production plant in need of new process pumps. The task: pump sticky syrup through the evaporation and crystallization processes. Helping the pumps' cause are stainless-steel impellers and mechanical seals. Also noted, by editor Charli Matthews, is a strong surge in UK pump orders.

Battling Gold-bearing Stone Sludge
 
When a gold mine tried to convey sludge using a rotary lube pump, the pump housing lasted just two days. Stepping to the plate was a progressing-cavity pump. Not only was water content able to be reduced, but pump service life soared. Learn here how the pump's design handles the job.
