The primary focus for CORE 2012 is to summarize proven engine catalyst and turbocharger solutions for emissions reductions, operational flexibility and reliability on equipment that are operated in the natural gas transmission industry.

We would like to invite you to attend the 2012 CORE Symposium, May 22-23, in Houston. The primary focus for CORE 2012 is to summarize proven engine catalyst and turbocharger solutions for emissions reductions, operational flexibility and reliability on equipment that we operate in the gas transmission industry. We hope you can join us for this exciting event!

The CORE Symposium brings together operators and suppliers to present common needs and proven solutions that target a Compliant, Optimized, Reliable Engine (CORE) to meet NOx reductions under control regulations.

This two-day symposium will include a review of ozone regulations and feature case studies and documented solutions offered by key suppliers. Attendees will learn about specific technology options, budgetary costs and scheduling issues that should be considered as specific compliance strategies are developed by your company.

The target audience is environmental, project management and plant reliability personnel involved in air emissions mitigation projects as well as suppliers with market-ready products and services to satisfy operating company needs.

The current agenda highlights include the following presentations:

Keynote: "Riding the Next Wave of Retrofits" with Gregg Arney, Southern California Gas Co.

Catalyst Solutions

  •      Dresser-Rand Enginuity, DCL International
  •      Reignite, MIRATECH and Johnson Matthey

Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI)
An Onboard Diagnostics Workshop
May 21, 2012    1 – 5PM Omni Westside Houston, TX

This workshop will be held on Monday May 21 from 1:00 – 5:00 pm and precedes the 3rd annual CORE Symposium. The workshop is intended to bring together environmental, IT and automation engineers to support development of an OBD specification as part of the PRCI Compressor & Pump Station Technical Committee Zero – Zero Research Program.

Discussion will center on:

  •      Regulatory needs
  •      Data mining
  •      Data storage
  •      Processing limitations
  •      Control system integration
  •      Data averaging and reporting requirements

The focus of the workshop is to define the requirements for onboard engine/compressor diagnostics and monitoring. There are many different possible approaches and the goal of this workshop is to narrow the options to provide a high level design that best fits the pipeline operator.

For the workshop to be successful, it is important to have in attendance individuals from the operating companies that can provide guidance in these areas. Specifically, individuals with the following expertise are desired to attend:

  •      Air emissions permitting and/or regulatory compliance
  •      Control system integration and support
  •      Engine and compressor technical support and performance monitoring
  •      Control system communications and SCADA
  •      Information technology specialists knowledgeable with control system networks, database storage systems, and reporting

There are no fees to attend this workshop but reservations are required. Please contact Marsha Short, 800-524-1620 x 2 for more information.
