Flaring Solutions for the Upstream Oil & Gas Industry - Tank Batteries/Storage Tanks - Oil, Gas & Refineries

The EPA mandates that all upstream oil and gas operators install factory-certified combustors that meet new Quad O compliance standards, or perform field testing on the flare system post-installation. ABUTEC offers the only compliance-ready combustors available to the market, making expensive testing no longer necessary for our customers. The use of enclosed combustors is an integral piece of the extraction process and affords companies the opportunity to operate in extreme conditions while still maintaining low emissions and following Quad O regulations.


Quad O Compliant
In accordance with EPA regulations, all combustion control devices must reduce site emissions to less than six tons yearly with a 95% destruction device. ABUTEC’s enclosed combustors, including the ABUTEC 20, ABUTEC 100 and High Temperature Flare (HTF), are compliance ready and exceed all Quad O standards with greater than 99% destruction and removal efficiency (DRE).


Low Emissions
Operation sites are now required to combust tank gas and can no longer vent these gasses into the atmosphere. ABUTEC offers a solution to this requirement with tank batteries and storage tanks that allow companies to work in a safer, cleaner and more economical environment. What is emitted from an ABUTEC combustor is 21 times cleaner than unburned methane, is smokeless, odorless, and produces no light pollution or radiant heat.


No flow is too small and no site is too rural for ABUTEC’s MTF Mini Tank Battery Flare. The MTF Mini has a small carbon footprint, is easy to install and works in the toughest conditions. Tank battery flares have a flexible and scalable system that can be engineered to fit your specific needs. Existing sites can be easily retrofitted with enclosed combustors to meet strict federal and state regulations.

Flaring of oil and gas storage vessels diminishes waste gas emissions, allowing upstream players to become compliant. Because ABUTEC combustors are enclosed, ignition of the flare is protected and designed to prevent the venting of gasses due to environmental or performance factors. These enclosed combustors are engineered to burn gasses with high efficiency and very low emissions. ABUTEC enclosed combustors are the only products of their kind available to the current market that are compliant ready.

Advantages Of Tank Batteries
Tank batteries have smaller designs but are of high quality, have 98% DRE and have low capital and operating costs.

The Whole Package
ABUTEC’s enclosed technology offers a completely enclosed frame, temperature monitoring and control, data logging of key parameters (such as temperature, pressure and run time) and full automatic operation.

Same Benefits, Lower Cost
ABUTEC’s High Temperature Flare is a completely enclosed combustor with low NOx and CO emissions, greater than 99.99% DE, full 10:1 turndown without gas booster, offers the lowest make-up fuel consumption and is able to burn very low calorific gas. An HTF is a more affordable option to a traditional enclosed combustor.

Small, But Powerful
The ABUTEC 20 is an enclosed combustor that is capable of 2,388,400 BTU/hour.

A Larger Option
The ABUTEC 100 is an enclosed combustor that is capable of 9,212,400 BTU/hour.
