Enalysis Tip 1.15 - Enalysis Default Flagging Limits for Reciprocating Compressors

July 17, 2020
The Enalysis software provides YELLOW (Warning) and RED (Severe) flags to identify compressor limits and allow for action to be taken to prevent possible damage to the compressor package. Reciprocating compressor packages are restricted to operating under conditions that ensure the mechanical ratings of the compressor are not exceeded. Exceeding one or more limits of the compressor can result in catastrophic failures requiring expensive repairs and resulting in costly downtime. Yellow warning flags indicate that a limit is being approached and red severe flags indicate that a limit has been reached.

Enalysis Tip 1.14 - Compressor Performance Modelling with Enalysis Simulate

June 25, 2020
Enalysis includes a full-featured compressor simulator for all active units enrolled in the software. The simulator uses the same calculations and compressor set-up information already in place within Enalysis to simulate the compressor’s performance at operating conditions that you input. The simulator is available 24/7 to run “What if…?” scenarios and provide instant insight into how your compressor will respond to changing conditions. Clear warnings and flags ensure operation will be safe and stable while allowing you to get the most out of your natural gas producing assets. The simulator works with any make, model or vintage of reciprocating or rotary screw compressor.

Enalysis Tip 1.13 - Reciprocating Compressor Performance Optimization

June 10, 2020
In natural gas gathering applications, maintaining the lowest possible suction pressure can provide a significant production advantage. As fields fluctuate and, over time, decline, compressor optimization must be done on a regular basis in order to minimize suction pressure, while maximizing throughput and maintain high levels of overall fleet utilization. Compressor performance curves are a graphical representation of the optimized suction pressure operating range of a compressor given assumed conditions. The flow presented on the curve is the highest throughput that is possible at the specified suction pressure and the power is the total required power consumption for the compression to take place.

As Production Volumes Plummet, Users Depend on Detechtion to Deliver Cost Savings with Enalysis

June 4, 2020
At Detechtion, one of the the things we obsess over is optimizing fleets of natural gas compression equipment by reducing operating costs and maximizing production through each individual unit, while considering all the unique requirements at each site (process pressures, minimum pressures required to dump liquids, etc…). Whether your single-compressor sites are starving for gas and struggling to run, or your multi-compressor gas plants are trying to maximize volumes through as few units as possible, Enalysis can help you digitally transform and optimize your oil and gas operations.

Enalysis Tip 1.5 - Causes of Blowby: Unaccounted Pressure Drops in Gas Compression Equipment

May 7, 2020
This post will look at how unaccounted pressure drops effect the Blowby calculated in an Enalysis report from Detechtion Technologies. Enalysis requires a suction and discharge pressure and temperature for each cylinder in order to calculate the thermodynamic performance of that cylinder. While suction temperature, suction pressure and discharge pressure can be common for all cylinders on a compression stage, the discharge temperature must be unique to each cylinder. The location of each these values is important when it comes to understanding and troubleshooting Blowby on an Enalysis report.
