The 2013 Q2 issue of Petroleum Technology Quarterly (PTQ) published an article, explaining how Industrial gases support the natural gas production chain. Experts from Linde specialty & industrial gases businesses illustrated the contribution of gases across the petrochemical processing spectrum and identified how these can be crucial to performance & safety.
In the upstream secotr, for offshore exploration equipment cutting, heating, welding & coating, industrial gases can be of great help. Specialty gases can help to improve safety by detecting & monitoring the gas leakage on offshore drilling platforms. Various gases and applications for commercial diving, natural gas extraction & processing, transport, BTU value & mercury measurement, emissions control, monitoring and analysis are also introduced.
