Enhancing NGL Management through Tailored Solutions in RightAngle

Enhancing NGL Management with RightAngle

In today’s ever-evolving business landscape, the imperative for streamlined, interconnected solutions to effectively manage the multifaceted intricacies of Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) has intensified. Within the dynamic energy sector, NGLs have evolved into widely traded commodities, their significance underscored by their ecological benefits and remarkable versatility throughout the refining process. However, the intricate process of refining Y-grade products into an array of diverse sub-products introduces a labyrinthine challenge. A web of spreadsheets and documents struggles to navigate the intricate logistics spanning the entire lifecycle, right up to the end consumer.

In this blog we will talk about how we bring in together NGLs complexity and RightAngle’s out-of-the-box functionalities together through Value Creed’s expertise. We strongly advise choosing RightAngle for managing NGLs due to its specialized focus on energy and commodity trading, seamless integration capabilities, high level of customizability, efficient refining and distribution tracking, enhanced risk management features, proven track record in the industry, ease of integration, and dedicated support services.

Navigating the Complexity of NGL Management

The intricate market dynamics of NGLs arise from the distinct behaviors, demand drivers, and price correlations among ethane, propane, butanes, and pentanes, coupled with their ties to crude oil and natural gas prices. Managing NGL portfolios requires delicate balance due to these interconnected fluctuations. Seasonal demand variations, driven by factors such as heating needs and summer driving, further compound the complexity.

Blending and regrading requirements also add to the intricacy. NGLs often require blending to meet specific product specifications and market demands. Each sub-products may consist of specific blends of various hydrocarbons, including ethane, propane, butanes, and pentanes, each with its distinct chemical properties. These components are blended in varying ratios to create different sub-products with desired characteristics for different applications. Proper management and tracking of these NGL components are essential to ensure the quality and suitability of the resulting sub-products. Inaccuracies or gaps in tracking these compositions can lead to inefficiencies, sub-optimal product quality, and difficulties in meeting market demands.

Moreover, the storage types required for NGLs are diverse and specialized, ranging from underground storage facilities to pressurized vessels. The need for proper storage adds complexity to the logistics, especially considering safety regulations, volume considerations, and compatibility of stored components.

RightAngle stands out as the optimal solution, offering specialized features for NGL storage, blending, and monitoring. It ensures seamless accessibility to a wide array of sub-products, meeting diverse customer needs. Its strengths lie in integration, customization, risk management, and a solid industry track record. However, prevalent use of third-party tools like Excel introduces inefficiencies, data disparities, and operational obstacles, impeding scalability and precise decision-making.
