Conduct a natural gas system study and improve natural gas system efficiency at your refinery or processing plant through our industry-acclaimed Pipeline Network Optimization (PNO) Service.
If you operate a natural gas system at your refinery or processing plant then there could be significant energy saving opportunities and safety catches uncovered after conducting a natural gas system study that optimizes the hydraulic performance of the natural gas system. EPI Engineering has an advantage above the rest when it comes to natural gas system studies as we are the industry-leaders in the field of fluid flow optimization and hydraulic modeling due to our direct partnership with EPCON Software, the developers of the most-widely used, fluid flow software in the world. With EPCON as a part of the engineering team we add an extra level of expertise that is unmatched when we conduct a natural gas system study.
After the natural gas system study is complete you will have up-to-date computer simulation models that represent the current hydraulic performance of each natural gas system along with multiple, simulated scenario models ensuring that recommendations to natural gas system deficiencies will result in desired performance. The reason why EPI is so successful at conducting natural gas system studies is due to our ability to perfectly tune our simulation models to represent current day operations providing us with accurate pressure and flow rates at each point in the natural gas system(s). Without this vital data there is no way to determine if a recommendation can be proven to be effective.
Since we know accurate flow rates and pressures at any given point in the natural gas system we are able to run simulated scenarios that determine the hydraulic performance of the system after making recommended changes. Some of our clients have said, “We didn’t know this was possible” and “this is amazing,” after reviewing all completed models and reports. Even better, we offer a low-cost maintenance program to ensure all computer models are updated and simulated scenarios are run and analyzed to ensure that proposed, future expansions or changes will lead to the result you are looking for.
Since 2002 EPI Engineering has saved our client millions through a variety of different ways and engineering services, including but not limited to: increasing production, reducing energy consumption and reanalyze other engineering firm’s recommendations that called for unneeded capital investments. These savings are possible due our many years of experience working with these types of systems and through the superior software technology we utilize for our pipeline network optimization projects. We are a Houston based engineering firm that has conducted our services all over the world and we would be happy to meet you for lunch to discuss how we could help increase the efficiency and get more for less out of your natural gas systems.
