  • Replacing of mechanical compressors by gas ejectors in flare gas recovery systems

    One of the main concerns of humankind in this century is the global warming induced by the increasing concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. A promising process for controlling the atmospheric CO2 level is prevention of combustion in flares causing high losses of raw material and energy that could generate more desired products. In the present work, a flare gas ...

  • Refinery flare gas H2S removal

    A major Gulf Coast refinery was searching for a solution to reduce flare gas SO2 that was resulting from very high H2S concentrations during periodic venting events. Original considerations were limited to very costly upstream equipment changes or a sulphur recovery unit, all costing tens of millions of dollars. Macrotek was contracted to design and build a cost-effective H2S ...

  • Maximizing Energy Recovery through Digester Gas Management System Enhancement

    ABSTRACTAdvanced anaerobic digestion practices and maximum energy recovery call for a digester gas system that reliably allows for complete biogas collection and utilization. This paper will describe the planning, design, and construction of a new digester gas management system at the East Bay Municipal Utility District’s (District) Main Wastewater Treatment Plant. The need for an upgraded ...

  • Assessing Feasibility of Direct Drive Technology for Energy Recovery from Digester Biogas

    ABSTRACTThe Regional Municipality of Waterloo completed a study, with support from Environment Canada, to evaluate the feasibility of using direct drive technology to recover energy from digester biogas. The study identified that a 150 HP engine, operating at 54 % load, could be supported by the estimated gas production of 1560 m3/d with 63 % methane by volume. ...

  • Landfill gas to fleet fuel in Ohio

    In mid-September, the Solid Waste Authority of Columbus, Ohio (SWACO) cut the ribbon on Phase I of its Green Energy Center that will convert landfill gas to compressed natural gas (CNG) for use in CNG-powered cars and medium duty trucks. The facility will produce enough CNG annually to replace almost 250,000 gallons of gasoline, plus additional natural gas sufficient to generate electricity for ...

  • Thermal oxidizers for natural gas savings - Case Study

    It’s in the news every day; the natural gas production industry is experiencing record growth. The gas reserves in the United States are thought to hold enough natural gas for hundreds of years and the gas and oil industry has improved extraction techniques that make gas production more affordable and less impactful on the landscape. Good news for the country and our environment. The ...

  • Oil refinery vapour gas case study

    1.0 Evaluation of Refinery Gases Various refinery gases are generated in the process of oil refining. These vary, depending upon the type of crude oil being distilled, such as Reduced Crude distillation, or Naphtha cracker. For the purposes of this case study the description and range of refinery gases are those gases produced from refining Crude Oil and Reduced Crude only. Crude ...

  • Case study - Amine tail gas treatment

    COVERING YOUR TAIL GAS The discovery of new shale formations throughout the world and the development of new drilling technologies have increased natural gas production and prompted government agencies to instigate tighter air-pollutioncontrol regulations on processing operations. Unfortunately, meeting environmental regulations is not a profit-generating endeavor. Simply put, the time ...

  • Biological process for H2S removal form gas streams the Shell-Paques/Thiopaq gas desulfurization process

    On 12 September 2002 natural gas containing H2S was introduced to the first high-pressure Shell-Paques unit at Bantry, east of Calgary in Canada. H2S in the sweet gas is guaranteed to be 4 ppmv, while the total design amount of sulfur to be removed per day is approximately 1 ton. The start up was organized in such a way that the specification on H2S in the sweet gas was met immediately and ...

  • Turning a Liability into an Asset: A Landfill Gas-to-Energy Project Development Handbook

    Each person in the United States generates about 4.5 pounds of solid waste per day almost one ton per year. Most of this waste is deposited in municipal solid waste landfills. As this landfilled waste decomposes (a process that may take 30 years or more), it produces landfill gas. Landfill gas contributes to the formation of smog and poses an explosion hazard if uncontrolled. Furthermore, because ...


  • New air quality rules challenge oil & natural gas industry

    EPA Administrator signed a suite of proposed new air regulations affecting both the Production/Processing and Transmission/Storage sectors of the oil and natural gas industry. The proposed rules mandate the use of emission controls as well as work practices through two different air regulatory programs – New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) and National Emissions Standards for Hazardous ...

  • Integrated GTL power-generation technology: the optimal solution to natural gas exploitation in Nigeria

    Nigeria has an estimated 187 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of proven gas reserves. Almost 50% of annual associated gas produced is flared or re-injected for enhanced recovery. Currently, the preferred option for exporting stranded gas is liquefied natural gas (LNG). However, the world LNG market is relatively small compared to middle distillates, and strongly driven by long-term and high risk ...
