  • Turboexpanders are proven, reliable and used widely in such natural gas applications as: ethane and propane extraction; natural gas (NG) dewpoint control; production of liquefied natural gas (LNG); flashing hydrocarbon liquids; NG pressure letdown energy recovery; and oilfield cogeneration. These applications are each discussed in this article as well as the design of a turboexpander and the various loading devices available. Mechanical designs of low temperature, high speed machinery are routine. Stiff designs have eliminated shaft and bearing criticals in the entire operating range. Rotor resonance problems are almost totally eliminated. Thrust bearing problems can be accurately monitored and controlled.more » Condensing streams and some dust in gas can be handled without erosion.« less
  • Mining companies are faced with growing societal demands that a sufficient portion of the benefits from mining should flow to local communities to ensure they are adequately compensated for the negative social impacts they experience. This paper considers how a more equitable benefit distribution system can be achieved through voluntary initiatives, recognising companies as potential agents for social development through the provision of improved services and infrastructure, capacity-building, employment and local economic development initiatives. Social Development Needs Analysis is introduced as an enhancement to participatory Social Impact Assessment methods to give practical guidance to site managers in evaluating community investmentmore » alternatives. Social Development Needs Analysis aims to identify the priority social issues that need to be addressed in order for a company to contribute to a net positive impact in the community while building assets for the business.« less
