  6. 6. Process Engineering Software BR&E Promax 3.2 – Promax is industry-recognized, robust process simulation software that will be used for general process design including amine sweetening, dehydration, fractionation, LPG recovery, sulphur plants, sour water stripping, pipelines and vessel sizing. ASPEN HYSYS® 7.3– Hysys is the benchmark process simulator, against which all others are measured. It is used as a backup tool, detailed investigation reviews, and/or a way of verifying simulator confidence. VMGSim – Comprehensive, fully interactive process simulation for oil, gas and chemical industries. VMGSim is the default simulation tool utilized at Gas Liquids Engineering. VMGSim also includes dynamic simulation capability. Fekete FAST Piper – Fekete Piper is available for use in gathering system modeling. Neotec Pipeflo – Gas Liquids Engineering has extensive experience using Neotec Pipeflo to model large gathering system pipeline networks, including use of the software for sizing pipelines as well as predicting liquid hold-up and slug volumes. Neotec also provides GLE with access to Wellflo and OLGA.
  7. 7. Process Engineering Software ProTreat - ProTreat® software was originally developed for simulating processes for the removal of H2S, CO2, and mercaptans from a variety of high and low pressure gas streams by absorption into thermally regenerable aqueous solutions containing one or more amines. Recently added capabilities include the physical solvent DMPEG (dimethylether of polyethyleneglycol) for acid gas removal, and dehydration using triethylene glycol (TEG). The ProTreat package makes exclusive use of a column model that treats the separation as a mass transfer rate process. This completely eliminates the need for empirical adjustments to simulate new applications correctly. Equilibrium stages and user-supplied estimates of tray efficiencies and HETPs are avoided, and columns are modeled with the number of real trays and physical depth of real packing they actually contain. Compression – Gas Liquids Engineering has access to a full complement of compressor vendor software packages including: • Ariel Performance • GE Oil and Gas Viper and EZ-Size • Dresser-Rand DRSize • Cooper Cameron Cascade and Compass
  8. 8. Project Management Software On Track Project Manager – OnTrack Project Manager is a complete, transaction-based, integrated project execution software and the most comprehensive, reliable, and fully automated procurement system for engineering professionals. PHA-Pro7 – Industry recognized software for process hazard analysis. This software is used globally for tracking project safety risks, HAZOP’s, LOPA, and safety system analyses. Primavera P6 – R8.1 –Primavera is a high-performance project management software, designed to handle large-scale, highly sophisticated and multifaceted projects. It can be used to organize projects up to 100,000 activities, and it provides unlimited resources and an unlimited number of target plans.
  9. 9. Engineering Software - Proprietary Proprietary Software – Gas Liquids Engineering also utilizes a variety of proprietary including: • AQUAlibrium - Software designed for systems containing water, hydrogen sulphide, carbon dioxide, and hydrocarbons. • GLEWPro - A Windows application to estimate the phase, property and flowing profiles in the well bore. Enhanced by the AQUAlibirum Phase Equilibrium Engine, GLEWpro is capable of handling the phase changes in the well bore, the heat transfer between the stream and formation, and the flowing behaviors from wellhead to bottom hole. • MassTrak - An OPC client application used to monitor the streams of a gas facility and provide a detailed material balance for desired components. • GLESource - Proprietary software foe basic design calculations, preparation of data sheets and equipment sizing
  10. 10. Design Software Advanced Steel 2012 - Advance Steel is specifically designed for structural engineers and steel detailers who require professional and easy-to-use BIM structural steel detailing software that automates the production of drawings, BOMs and NC files. Autodesk AutoCAD 2013 – Our design and drafting staff uses AutoCAD 2013 for development of engineering schematics (block flow diagrams, PFDs and P&IDs) as well as construction drawings such as site layouts (plot plans) and orthographic drawings. Autodesk Civil3D – Designing and visualizing a complex project in 3D not only helps accelerate the planning and design process, it also produces a higher-quality design. Autodesk Navisworks Simulate 2013 – Navisworks is a software package that allows users to “walk” through 3D models and review the entire site. It is primarily used for ongoing engineering and client review of 3D models throughout development, resulting in minimized re-working as a project moves into the construction phase.
  11. 11. Design Software AutoTURN 8.0 – is a vehicle swept path analysis and turn simulation software. New and updated features give us the ability to perform intricate vehicle movements with reliable engineering results. Intergraph’s CADWorx Plant 2013 - CADWorx 2013 is the latest software used for 3D model development and P&ID development. It is a GLE standard that all facility modeling is performed using 3D modeling, as significant cost benefits and design execution improvements have been realized. Intergraph’s CADWorx P&ID 2013 – has everything needed for the easy creation of intelligent process diagrams that are linked to our SQL database. CADWorx P&ID unlocks the power of P&ID's by making diagrams, and the information locked within them, available to all stakeholders. Integraph’s Caesar II – Industry recognized Stress Analyzing software. Incorporates the industry's first and only seamless, bi-directional link between CAD plant design and engineering analysis. This link to Intergraph CADWorx Plant allows the passing of design and analysis data between these packages without data loss.

The Polish Oil and Gas Company (POGC) retained Gas Liquids Engineering as the lead member of a consortium acting as the Technical Advisor to POGC for the LMG project, providing services which include: o Review of the basic, building, and detailed engineering design packages for the project facilities to ensure proper design. o Review of HAZOP, LOPA, and SIL studies to ensure design and implementation of acceptable safety systems to protect plant personnel, equipment, and the Nature 2000 forest environment around the facilities. o Construction inspection and factory acceptance testing for key equipment items. o o Training for plant management and operations staff. o Commissioning and start-up support and support for technical acceptance of the completed facilities. .
  35. 35. International Projects Kinder Morgan CO2 Company – SACROC Unit, Texas, USA The SACROC Unit processes over 620 MMSCFD of gas for CO2 capture and injection while recovering over 30,000 bbl/d of oil and 15,000 bbl/d of NGL liquids. Capacity Increase Project Identified an additional 90 MMSCFD capacity with minor equipment modifications. The primary scope involved process review, simulation, major equipment rating and cost estimation for modifications for inlet separation, dehydration, filtration, chilling/separation, booster compression, gas and liquid amine treating, NGL recovery and condensate stabilization. Expansion Project Generated the FEED for a 240 MMSCFD expansion train for CO2 capture, injection and liquids recovery. The primary scope involved design basis memorandum generation, engineering process design, capital cost estimation and data sheet package development involving inlet separation, dehydration, filtration, refrigeration, liquids separation, heating and water-cooling. The secondary scope involved to varying degrees process review, cost estimation and data sheet package generation for modifications of all affected downstream processes such as molecular sieves, amine systems, NGL recovery, condensate stabilization and Puraspec.
