The remarkable increase in production of natural gas liquids (NGL) and related NGL purity products resulting from the ongoing U.S. shale boom has led to a surge in demand for related storage capacity, required both at the wellhead and at all points across the delivery chain.
Long considered a by-product of natural gas drilling, natural gas liquids (NGLs) have become a driver of U.S. natural gas exploration and production growth. NGLs, the hydrocarbons extracted when natural gas is processed, predominantly consist of ethane, propane (LPG), butanes and pentane—so called ‘purity products’ when separated—all of which are valuable inputs for numerous industrial activities, including petrochemical manufacturing, power generation and fuel blending.
On December 16, 2011, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized its Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS) rule, which establishes standards to regulate emissions from existing and new coal- and oil-fired power plants.

Whether you are building a new bulk storage plant or adding storage for natural gas processing? Upgrading your existing bulk plant storage capacity? Purchasing a tank to modify for specific processing requirements? Should you purchase a new or used LPG bullet tank? Here are a few things you should consider:
With winter fast approaching, tis the season to take a closer look at your propane air standby system to make sure it starts up and is operational when needed. All too often we receive last minute SOS calls from companies all over the country who are about to have their natural gas supply curtailed and are in need an immediate solution to their broken propane vaporizer, blending system or both. With some simple routine maintenance and occasional upgrades of old systems that no longer function many of these panic calls could have been avoided.
