GL Noble Denton experts present gas infrastructure management papers at World Gas Conference 2012

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – Two GL Noble Denton experts will present new technical papers examining methodologies for replacing mains pipelines and the use of natural gas vehicles at the World Gas Conference in Kuala Lumpur.
Rosemary McAll, senior consultant from GL Noble Denton’s Gas Consulting practice will present a paper on ‘The UK Mains Replacement Methodology and its Role in Reducing Leakage Repairs’ at 09:45, on Tuesday 5 June in WOC4, committee session 4.1. The paper describes a system developed by GL Noble Denton known as Mains Replacement Prioritisation (MRP), which models the likelihood that any individual pipe segment will generate a gas leak. The methodology has been in use in the UK since 2000. It is the primary tool used by all major British gas distribution networks to plan a 30-year mains replacement programme. Ms McAll’s presentation will demonstrate how MRP can be used to effectively target pipelines at risk for gas leaks, thereby reducing expenditures.
Robert Judd, a principal consultant at GL Noble Denton, will present a paper entitled ‘Options for Natural Gas Vehicles in the UK Transport Energy Roadmap’ at 16:15, on Wednesday 6 June 2012 in WOC5, presentation area 1. He will examine the technology options that could be used to ensure that gas using vehicles are part of low-carbon energy infrastructure in the future. The presentation will explore methods for establishing a fuelling network for compressed natural gas built around the existing gas distribution networks; the creation of a low pressure system to support adsorbed natural gas vehicles; and the development of a liquefied natural gas-based infrastructure for distribution sites.
GL Noble Denton will be exhibiting its technical advisory services at stand number 1208 during the World Gas Conference. The company also invites delegates to take part in a new Industry Snapshot Poll at its stand. The survey aims to gain insights into the issues facing the gas industry in Asia and as such attendees will be asked to vote on three questions:
· Will China become the world’s largest producer of shale gas by 2030?
· Will Japan decrease its dependence on LNG in the next decade?
· Does Asia have the infrastructure to support growth in gas consumption?
The results of the poll will be made available after the Conference at: www.gl-nobledenton.com
Petroleum Economist, with the support of GL Noble Denton, has arranged a panel discussion event to run during the World Gas Conference 2012 to discuss the impact of Asia’s entry into the global unconventional gas market on Thursday 7 June 2012, between 5:30 – 9:00pm, in the Impiana Hotel, KLCC, Kuala Lumpur.
