International Gas Union World Gas Conference Papers | Year: 2015

The world requires secure, reliable, and affordable energy supplies to sustain economic growth. The fossil fuels are expected to continue to play a significant role in supplying the needs of future global energy. In the meantime, carbon dioxide emissions associated with fossil fuels are thought to be the main cause of global warming. There is an increasingly urgent need to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, including those related to energy production and consumption. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is one of the most viable technologies currently available to mitigate GHG emissions from large-scale fossil fuel usage. CCS involves the capture, transport, and injection of CO2 into suitable geological formations. The injected CO2 is monitored to verify its storage. Although CCS from coal has generally received most attention, the use of CCS with gas can enhance natural gas' advantage of the low carbon emissions. This report studies the various merits and synergies of CCS on gas and examines how CCS can be applicable and advantageous to gas industries. ©TOTAL.


LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2016) -  AGC did not intend to imply that the NIGC, nor the Department of Justice (DOJ), provided any approval of Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) for AGC, or any other company. The NIGC provides opinions, and AGC secured a legal opinion as to its Casino Gateway Network, aka Tribal Gaming Network (Network). The only reference to the legality of DFS comes from the interpretation of the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act (UIGEA), passed by Congress and signed by President, George W. Bush in 2006. Our reference to our legal platform refers to the above-referenced legal opinion relative to our Network, and said opinion being issued by the NIGC. That Opinion can be found in the "Legal Opinions" Section/ Game Classification Opinions (scroll down to Casino Gateway Network) of the NIGC Website: http://www.nigc.gov/general-counsel/game-classification-opinions As stated in that legal opinion, our Network is a Virtual Private Network (VPN) and acts like a Wide Area Progressive (WAP), featuring multiple vendors' casino games, with the capacity to link one Indian Casino to another, in 28 States on Indian Lands. Also, games on our Network are not considered to be Internet Gaming and the opinion indicates that they, therefore, do not violate the UIGEA. AGC's Network only offers games tested by the leading gaming labs and has, thus far, operated multiple vendors' Social Games on two licensed Indian Casinos, one in Nevada and one in Louisiana. The Social Games are also operational in several Sports Bars within the US with plans for expansion. In the future the Company plans a DFS product and an Initial Public Offering (IPO) for 2017. The DFS product will only be offered as a game on our legal platform in conformity with the rules and regulations of the states where DFS has been authorized and is regulated.

To minimize unaccounted natural gas in Iran, NIGC has defined several projects, among these the remote reading of smart gas metering related to organization of billing system to measure more than 13.8 million residential customers. In this project NIGC's experts designed a kind of diaphragm gas meter that encoder replaced for wheel and links. This kind of smart meter means tilt and tamper proof, temperature corrector with capability of remote reading based on open source M-Bus wireless protocol.

International Gas Research Conference Proceedings | Year: 2014

A novel screening criteria under Multi Criteria Decision Making wiith Analytical Hierarchy Process engine is presented. The way to acquire fields' expert opinions for applying Under Ground gas Storage (UGS), how to ask questions from fields' expert, and how criteria affect selection of one structure in comparison with one another are proposed. The methodology can be applied to different fields/structures to prioritize them for selecting appropriate sites of UGS and the best choice to execute this technology on, can then be selected. The techniques described should be used by decision makers and managers to select the proper and potential site for UGS. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the International Gas Union Research Conference (IGRC 2014) (Copenhagen, Denmark 9/17-19/2014).

Steel and Composite Structures | Year: 2012

In this paper, the thermal buckling analysis of rectangular composite laminated plates is investigated using the Differential Quadrature (DQ) method. The composite plate is subjected to a uniform temperature distribution and arbitrary boundary conditions. The analysis takes place in two stages. First, pre-buckling forces due to a temperature rise are determined by using a membrane solution. In the second stage, the critical temperature is predicted based on the first-order shear deformation theory. To verify the accuracy of the method, several case studies were used and the numerical results were compared with those of other published literatures. Moreover, the effects of several parameters such as aspect ratio, fiber orientation, modulus ratio, and various boundary conditions on the critical temperature were examined. The results confirm the efficiency and accuracy of the DQ method in dealing with this class of engineering problems.

Saudi Arabia will continue to be the largest consumer of industrial gases in 2016, accounting for a revenue share of 46.8% in 2016. Saudi Arabia is the leading economy in the region and country’s strong chemicals & petrochemicals sector will continue to ramp up demand for industrial gases in 2016 as well. Region-wise, UAE will be the second largest GCC industrial gases market, representing market revenues worth US$ 190.6 Mn -- an increase of 6.8% in 2016 over 2015. Consumption of industrial gases in GCC will reach 3.75 million tonnes in 2016, witnessing an increase of 5.4% over 2015. Chemicals & petrochemicals will continue to be the largest application segment for industrial gases in terms of volume in 2016, accounting for 815.6 KT (Kilo tonnes) in 2016, up from 772.2 KT in 2015. Upcoming mega events in GCC, including Dubai Expo 2020 and FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, will continue to drive construction activity, fuelling demand for industrial gases. Demand is expected to pick up in non-oil sectors, as prevailing low prices continue to drive focus on reducing dependency on oil exports. Among all the gas types, oxygen will continue to account for leading market revenue share in 2016, owing to high consumption in chemicals, petrochemicals, refining, metals and fabrication industry. Demand for argon gas will witness highest growth rate in 2016, owing to its increasing utilization in metallurgy, welding and metal fabrication applications. While refining application segment will lead overall GCC industrial gas revenues in 2016, metals and metallurgy segment will increase at highest growth rate in 2016. Increasing infrastructural development activities are expected to be the major driver for consumption growth of industrial gases in metals & metallurgy application. Leading players such as Gulf Cryo, SABIC-NIGC, The Linde Group, Air Liquide etc. are focusing on reducing operational and distribution costs to consolidate their position in the market. Merger and acquisitions and joint ventures remain a key strategy in the GCC industrial gases market; for example, over the last couple of years, companies such as the Linde group, Air Liquide, Praxair Inc. and Air Products & Chemicals Inc. have significantly increased their footprint in the GCC industrial gases market by entering into JVs with regional market players. For More Information Request TOC (desk of content material), Figures and Tables of the report @ http://www.persistencemarketresearch.com/market-research/gcc-industrial-gases-market/toc Long-term Outlook: PMR forecasts the GCC industrial gases market to increase at 7.3% CAGR during the forecast period 2016-2022, and reach US$ 1,270.1 Mn in revenues.

Now that Western sanctions have been lifted from Iran’s energy sector, the country wants to sell its natural gas (the largest gas reserves on the planet at 1,201 trillion cubic feet) to the world. However, unfortunately for Iran it lacks the necessary infrastructure to quickly enter the market. Alireza Kameli, managing director of National Iranian Gas Export Co. (NIGC) said on Tuesday that the Islamic Republic is exploring several options to help join the international LNG club. In a Wall Street Journal interview he laid out several options to jump start Iran’s gas ambitions, including finishing the Iran LNG project, which is 40% completed.
