BALTIMORE, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 -- LPP Combustion, LLC today announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Richard (Rick) Roby, will deliver a presentation titled, "Low Emissions Microgrid Power Fueled by Bakken Flare Gas," at the ASME 2014 Power Conference in Baltimore, MD at 11:00 AM EDT on July 30, 2014. Mr. Roby will introduce a new methodology for maximizing the potential of natural gas liquids (NGLs), while mitigating risk and need for capital investment.
It is estimated that 30% of the over 1 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas produced in the Bakken shale field is lost to flaring. Collected and used in Dry Low Emission (DLE) power generation gas turbine engines, this fuel represents approximately 1.2 GW of collective power.
While the main reason that much of this fuel is flared is that the infrastructure in the Bakken lacks sufficient capacity or compression to combine and transport the gas streams, one of the reasons that this fuel cannot be utilized on-site for power generation is that it contains significant amounts of natural gas liquids (NGLs) which makes the gas unsuitable as a fuel for natural gas fired gas turbine engines.
"Burning the fuel used in the flare gases in the Bakken locally in a power generation combustor, for example, would provide electricity for drilling (and fracking) operations," said Dr. Roby.
A Lean, Premixed, Prevaporized (LPP) combustion technology has been developed that converts liquid fuels, including NGLs, into a substitute for natural gas. This LPP gas can then be used to fuel virtually any combustion device in place of natural gas yielding emissions comparable to that of ordinary natural gas.
This groundbreaking development provides a flexible liquid fuel source while meeting or exceeding environmental requirements. Also, the technology's use of existing equipment and infrastructure drastically reduces labor overhead and other maintenance costs.
A microgrid can distribute power locally to the camps and infrastructure supporting the drilling and processing operations. Using the flare gases on-site has the benefit of reducing or eliminating the need for diesel tankers to supply fuel for power generation systems and equipment associated with the drilling operations.
LPP technology empowers industry and utilities to convert liquid fuels into a substitute natural gas that will reduce emissions at or below natural gas levels, while providing them a range of alternative liquid fuel options available at competitive pricing levels in a fuel arbitrage scenario.
"In addition to complying with stricter EPA emissions requirements, the many practical applications for LPP technology have the potential to safely and efficiently maximize returns by capitalizing on existing resources.
"LPP conversions eliminate the need to use specialized LNG tankers for transport, as well as for new construction for plants and import/export facilities. Instead, existing pipelines, ocean and road transportation -- coupled with safe storage capabilities -- can be utilized with minimum costs and impact on communities to help satiate international demand for natural gas," added Dr. Roby.
ABOUT LPP Combustion, LLC
The LPP Combustion fuel preparation system overcomes the operational and emissions barriers between using liquid fuels and natural gas in combustion turbines. The patented technology offers fuel flexibility, improved heat rate, and reduced maintenance without the 80% increase in emissions associated with conventional burning of liquid fuels.

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed. This contrasts with conventional software development that begins with defining logic based on the current way a business operates. In her session at 18th Cloud Expo, Judith S. Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...
