Southern Gas Association is proud to partner with the Northeast Gas Association and etaPartners to bring the industry a comprehensive two day, 7-hour Technical Workshop, drawing upon the expertise of two of our industries foremost leaders in gas quality and interchangeability. Join SGA, NGA and etaPartners to explore gas quality fundamentals and how to reasonably and rationally apply these principles in day-to-day pipeline operations.
This workshop will take place over two days:
Tuesday, March 29, 12 pm – 3 pm, CST
Wednesday, March 30, 12 pm – 3 pm, CST
Pipeline natural gas is not just methane, but rather a complex mixture of hydrocarbon and inert gases, sulfur compounds, moisture and other trace constituents and contaminants. Today, as the industry explores options for pipeline infrastructure utilization in a carbon-constrained environment, additional gases are being considered for introduction into the pipeline network, including hydrogen and renewable natural gas. These supplemental gases can differ from traditional geological supplies, which has renewed recognition of the need to better understand the chemical and utilization impacts of these supplies on pipeline operations and end-use. This Workshop is designed to inform engineering and operations personnel alike in the fundamentals of gas quality and interchangeability and to apply these principles to our alternate supply future.
This Workshop Includes:
- The History of Gas Quality & Interchangeability
- Learning from our Past to Build the Future
- Understanding Natural Gas Constituents & Properties.
- The Chemistry of Low-Carbon Transitional Fuels – HENG & RNG.
- Focused Approach to Understanding & Applying Concepts of Gas Interchangeability.
- Understanding Potential Pipeline System Impacts Related to Gas Quality.
- Tariffs, Contracts & Interconnect Agreements.
- Monitoring Gas Quality.
- Developing & Implementing a Gas Quality Management Plan.
