Case study in deducing pump discharge pressures with applied methods for maximizing throughput of a strategic crude oil pipeline

  The aged crude oil pipeline; 16" x 166 km since November 1984, extends from Meleiha field at Western desert to El-Hamra terminal at coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Its original capacity was 100,000 BOPD using two pumping stations; one at Meleiha and the other is a boosting station, 83 km far from Meleiha. Planned pumped flow rate increased to 177,000 BOPD at the time that maximum allowable working...

Performance and emission characteristics of compression ignition (CI) engine with dual fuel operation (diesel + compressed natural gas (CNG))

  The main objective of this work is to study the performance and emission characteristics ofcompression ignition (CI) engine using compressed natural gas (CNG) for the following conditions. (i) At constant speed by varying injection pressure and load (ii) Dual fuel combustion phenomenon. The conventional fuels like petrol and diesel for internal combustion engines are getting exhausted at an...
