Brian Van Vliet

Environmental Solutions Leader, Spartan Controls

Speaker Bio

Brian became part of the team at Spartan Controls in 2005. He is currently an Environmental Solutions Leader and Technical Specialist. Brian recently published a report on Pneumatic Vent Gas Measurement and is currently the President of the International Society of Automation – Calgary Section. Brian received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (Coop) from the University of Alberta and lives in Calgary, Alberta. His efforts to reduce vented fuel gas have helped meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations, while improving process performance, reliability and safety.

4-161717 - Create Revenue Through Reduced Vent Rates Upstream oil and gas producers have found it difficult to improve their operating pneumatic instrument efficiency to achieve reductions of vented methane at upstream oil and gas production assets. Fisher worked closely with GreenPath Energy, to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emission impacts from L2 level controllers without compromising performance reliability. Through controller relay improvements, field pilot vent rates were reduced by over 20scfh fuel gas equivalent. That reduced vent rate resulted in $2,000/yr in fuel gas savings and carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) credits realized. 45 minutes Workshop Michael D'Antoni, GreenPath Energy Ltd.

4-161722 - Reduced Instrument Vent Rates Achieve Methane Compliance with ROI Upstream oil and gas producers have found it difficult to meet vented methane reduction targets at upstream oil and gas production assets. Tarpon Energy Services worked closely with the local LBP, Spartan Controls, to help a Canadian producer reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emission impacts from pneumatic instruments without compromising performance and reliability. A streamlined project development and management tool made reporting to the government easier and carbon offsets cost effective. $1.8M CDN/yr. in fuel gas savings and carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) credits were realized through retrofit of transducers and pressure controllers. 45 minutes Workshop Blake Wickland - Technical Services Manager, Tarpon Energy Services
