Latest API News from the Meetings in Denver:

The 79th Annual Summer Standardization Conference of the American Petroleum Institute was held in Denver, Colorado at the Westin Westminster Hotel June 24 – 28, 2002. The meeting began with a general session breakfast hosted by Bruce Reynolds, of ChevronTexaco, who discussed new visions for standardization and plans to increase participation and various work process improvements.

As we have in years past, OFITE actively participated in the Well Cements (SC 10) and the Drilling Fluid Materials (SC 13) sessions. Following the standard format, work group sessions were held Monday, June 24, followed by the task group meetings and reports on Tuesday. The HPHT Thermocouple work group, chaired by Larry Mitchell, had a very good progress report by John Toups of Westport Technology Center. Larry also conducted the retort work group session for Tom Carter, who is the chairman, but was unable to attend. This was a very lively and spirited session with a lot of varying opinions as to what direction we need to be heading in. Rick Lukay represented OFITE in the Well Cements (SC 10) work and task group sessions.

Low-cost, high performance analyzer will help petrochemical refiners
meet proposed low sulfur detection limits.
Austin, TX – February 1, 2002. The sulfur content in diesel fuel may soon be reduced by 97 percent to provide for the cleanest running trucks and buses in history. Reducing the sulfur content in diesel fuel would cut emissions from existing trucks and buses. The proposed regulation targets refiners with stricter rules to reduce noxious air pollution and protect citizens from bronchitis, asthma and lung cancer. Making the ultra-low sulfur diesel that EPA proposes would require an estimated $8 billion in refinery investments.
Under the proposed regulations, refineries will be hard pressed to meet the low sulfur requirements with their existing technology. Jordan Valley supplies a low cost analyzer that will meet these sulfur detection limits and other applications.
Jordan Valley’s EX-310S provides rapid and precise measurement of total sulfur in petroleum products as described in ASTM method D4294. The EX-310S makes accurate sulfur determinations with little or no sample preparation and performs automated analysis with just the click of a mouse.
