Natural Gas Processing Plant Study

Improve your future operations by understanding where your plant performance excels or falls short compared to industry.

Designed to help you understand the activities and trends of today’s gas processing industry, Solomon’s Worldwide Natural Gas Processing Plant Performance Analysis (NGPP Study) provides insight into the status of your plant in all key performance areas and data-driven analysis to focus and justify performance improvement efforts.

The NGPP Study compares your plant’s operations and maintenance costs with other plants on a common basis. Typical industry comparisons do not consider the complexity of operations, leading to unreliable benchmarks.

Our NGPP Study employs Solomon's rigorous EDC® approach to normalization. EDC provides a reliable method of evaluating a broad spectrum of plants operating across diverse operating environments. By normalizing performance using Solomon’s EDC metric, the NGPP Study provides valid comparisons to other plants with varying facility configurations.

Study results can also be used to formulate optimization plans to eliminate shortfalls, establish performance targets, and measure progress using Solomon metrics.

Our ever-expanding database
