When making purchasing decisions, every company is different. It's important to determine what your company's budget is and see what's best for its needs. When looking for a DropBox product, the first question you'll probably want to ask yourself is whether you should rent or buy. This can be a tricky question to answer because both options have their positives depending on what the company's situation is. So what's the right answer? Luckily, DropBox Inc. can help you find it!

Renting

Renting an ISO shipping container helps companies who are looking for a short-term option. To summarize, renting can be great for companies because...

      • You don't need to have a capital budget. Instead, you'll be able to spread the cost across the entire length of the project with a monthly rental rate
      • You don't need to arrange secure storage because the unit may have to be moved multiple times between projects
      • The rental company maintains service on the equipment, so your company can focus on what's important to them instead of peripheral support items
      • Every job starts with the unit in an A-1 functional shape, so you won't have to spend valuable time validating equipment performance and set up

Buying

Buying an ISO shipping container helps companies who are looking for a long-term option. To summarize, buying can be great for companies because...

      • The long term rental rate provides enough equity to buy, or come close to buying, the product
      • The product can be moved to future jobsites and re-used for whatever your company desires
      • You will have 100% control of what happens to the product because your company owns it
      • You are able to modify the product to fit your company's specific needs by painting it, adding fixtures/equipment, etc.

DropBox Inc. Provides Modular Chemistry Labs for Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream Sectors of the LNG Industry

As natural gas goes through the process of liquefaction, it must be sent through multiple sectors. These sectors are called Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream. Because DropBox Inc. is getting more involved with the LNG industry, we have built modular labs that are able to meet the needs of each of these sectors. But before we could provide modular labs to the companies within this industry, it was important for our company to understand what each sector was responsible for during the LNG process. Today's blog will be discussing what exactly happens in the Upstream, Midstream, and Downstream sectors. 

The Upstream sector of the LNG industry refers to the exploration and production of natural gas.

People that are employed by this section of the industry include geologists, geophysicists, service rig operators, engineering firms, scientists, and seismic/drilling contractors. Within this sector, these employees are looking for areas where minerals can be found and obtained. Once those minerals are located, the area is drilled into in order to bring any natural gas up to the surface. This sector also includes services such as rig operations, feasibility studies, machinery rental, and extraction of chemical supply.

The Midstream sector refers to the transportation and storage of natural gas.

Before the natural gas can be used to make many of the products that we purchase, it must be transported from the Upstream sector to the Downstream sector. This is where the Midstream sector comes into play. The Midstream sector of the LNG industry includes pipelines and everything else that's needed to move the natural gas long distances. This includes pumping stations, tank trucks, rail tank cars, and transcontinental tankers.

The Downstream sector involves the processing, selling, and distribution of natural gas based products. 

The Downstream sector is the final step in the production process. This sector is responsible for everything that happens to the natural gas post production. The employees that are in this sector are natural gas processors. Their responsibility is to take the finished products to consumers and market/distribute those products. Many of the products that come directly from downstream production include diesel, natural gas, gasoline, heating oil, lubricants, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, and propane.

DropBox Inc. offers modular labs that provide LNG producers with the proper environments for each sector of the production process.

Transportable and site-ready for connection to power, water, and sewer, our customizable, modular labs are fully equipped to meet the specific needs of the producers of natural gas, LNGs, crude oil, refined products, and petrochemicals. The quick installation of these labs reduces weather delays, moisture getting into project materials resulting in mold contamination, and on-site traffic from workers, equipment, and suppliers. By providing cleanroom process areas and laboratory/R&D space, DropBox Inc. is able to give lab technicians the ability to perform their work duties and quality control protocols in a remote setting. This in includes the ability to have the lab be an open area or contain specific zones for use separation. 

As our President and CEO, Robert Slagel, always says, "If you can think it, we can put it in a box!"
