Coal Bed Methane Oxygen Analyzers

The Oxygen Problem

According to industry professionals -
  • Oxygen at higher levels (1000 ppm or above) would pose a severe explosion hazard at the wellhead.


  • Even at 100 ppm levels, oxygen can pose significant corrosion threats to the pipeline. With long distances of the pipeline buried underground, corrosion may cause gas leaks and contamination threats.


  • On a commercial note, the value of the natural gas drops significantly if the sales gas has more than 50 ppm of oxygen.
Oxygen Monitoring System Requirements

Consider:
A power line may not always be available. Solar power is the main source with panels normally supplied as part of the flow computer unit (FCU).

Therefore:
The analyzer may have to work at 12 VDC power or less.





Consider:
Telemetry is the main source of signal back to the SCADA. The telemetry system is supplied as part of the FCU.

Therefore:
The analyzer should seamlessly integrate with the FCU in use. Signals should be unaffected during wireless transmission.




Consider:
Field instruments are subjected to severe extremes in environmental conditions.

Therefore:
The system should endure the conditions of the great outdoors -- 24 hours a day, every day of the year.




Consider:
Special radios are used in the field for communication with the control staff.

Therefore:
The system should be unaffected by strong radio frequency interference.




Teledyne has considered all these important factors as well.
