10:00 - 10:30
From technology to implementable solution in CCU
Christina Nenu, Shell Global Solutions
10:30 - 11:00
Knowledge Management as a Competitive Advantage
Taras Grigoryev, TechnipEnergies
In this presentation you will learn what Knowledge Management (KM) is and will hear about its foundational elements. Also you will see the benefit of adopting KM in an organization and how it helps “brain intensive” companies like Technip Energies achieve business results in more effective and innovative ways.
11:00 - 11:30
Troubleshooting operating plants using process simulation – Case Studies
Katerina Hejnova, Bryan Research & Engineering
This presentation will emphasize the role of process simulation in getting insight into operations. It will showcase the benefits of combining good knowledge of simulation and expertise in operations. Several case studies will be covered focusing on gas purification and equipment design.
12:00 - 12:30
Liquid vs. Fixed Bed H2S Scavengers. Working in Harmony or Against Each Other for H2S Removal
Michael Crawshaw, Schlumberger
Natural gas sweetening extensively utilizes both liquid scavengers and fixed bed adsorbent technology. Typically, an operator uses one of these chemical treatment options for the selective removal of Hydrogen Sulfide in crude oil and natural gas processing. Few suppliers provide both liquid and fixed bed adsorbent and are therefore unable to look objectively an optimized natural gas sweetening solution using both technologies together. In this paper, we discuss the advantages and disadvantageous of each natural gas sweetening technology. This review focuses on an overview of both liquid scavenger and fixed bed adsorbent, including a process description, chemistry, equipment required, footprint, method of monitoring performance, system maintenance, and the resulting economics. A successful case study demonstrating hybrid system operation is included. This case study demonstrates how a hybrid system, using a liquid scavenger followed by a fixed bed adsorbent can be more effective in meeting customer's specific requirements. A hybrid system can improve control of both CAPEX and OPEX and provide flexible operation.
12:30 - 13:00
Gas liquefaction – Comparison of different liquefaction technologies
Thierry Gorilliot, TotalEnergies
- Liquefaction processes classification

14:00 - 14:30
World Premiere LCO2 Marine Loading Arms
Souhail Ben Ali, TechnipEnergies
GHG emissions increasingly threaten our planet, Carbon Capture and Sequestration has become a key focus.
As a technology pioneer in the transfer solution industry, T.EN Loading Systems manufactured the 3 world’s first liquid CO2 Marine Loading Arms.
We have conducted a comprehensive design and qualification program for our swivel joints, Emergency Release System and sealing system to ensure full compatibility with CO2 specific properties.
Discover through this presentation, the lessons learnt of the world’s first LCO2 loading arms manufacturing.
14:30 - 15:00
Sulfur components: a challenge for sour gas production
Renaud Cadours, TotalEnergies
The specifications on sales gas and environmental emissions are the main targets when designing a sour gas plant. But the presence of sulfur components such as mercaptans or COS is also a key parameters to define the optimum configuration.
Recent studies will be used to highlight the impact of several parameters on the optimum design, considering the specific context of the project. The presentation will focus also on the consequence of technology selection for AGRU, LPG treatment, SRU-TGTU on the overall plant performance, including also OPEX and CAPEX optimization.
15:30 - 16:30
Troubleshooting poorly performing filters/coalescers
Martin Copp, Parker Hannifin
Filters and Coalescers are used in all walks of life where we produce, utilise or consume fluids are processed or used. Our cars (at least those with internal combustion engines) are only able to provide the reliable, economic and ever lower emissions that we expect as a result of the Fuel, Lube and Air filters they use. We are able to turn on the tap and safely drink fresh water as a result of the filtration and purification processes that the water goes through. Planes can fly at high elevation and temperatures well below freezing point due to the filters and coalescers used in the fuelling procedure. Milk, beer, wine and carbonated drinks are safe for us to consume due to harmful bacteria being removed via filtration.
Filtration and coalescing technologies are also widely used in every processing environment. The economics of hydrocarbon processing is heavily affected by the effectiveness of the filters and coalescers utilised. Plants are only able to produce on spec products and operate at the highest energy efficiency, highest throughput, highest reliability and lowest maintenance costs if the correct filtration and coalescing technology is installed and correctly maintained. Even when the correct filtration solutions are installed, operational issues can occur which affects the performance of this critical equipment. This seminar will look at the types of filters and coalescers commonly employed, operational issues that might be encountered and ways to identify what is causing the operational issues.
