With the new $52 million funding grant approved by Alberta, we can expect to see many more companies going green here shortly. The grant promises to pay for 75% of your project with the goal of reducing your CO2e output. That’s why we decided to spotlight how you can reduce methane emissions starting today. Keep reading to learn the five ways to reduce methane emissions with Gaspro compressions technology.
Casing Gas Compressors
Casing gas compression packages work great for oil well optimization. After a while, the pressure inside the gas wellhead builds up so high that it actually stops the flow of gas from the bottom to the top of the well. To prevent this from happening, GasPro casing gas compressors take the gas from the wellhead, compress it, then put it back into that high-pressure line. By doing this, it releases that high-pressure that builds at the top of the well, letting the gas flow much more smoothly. This process conserves the gas more efficiently and therefore reduces the emissions.
This unconventional way of gas compression is being able to capture the gas at an extremely low flow rate, which eliminates the need to vent or flare the gas. This improves the oil well’s efficiencies and makes it more profitable. More importantly, these compressors meet regulator compliance and have a relatively small footprint.
Cooler or Condenser Box
Temperature control and extraction of liquid is important for many productions. In these cases, GasPro condenser boxes are absolutely required. These are applied where liquid content is high in order to prevent any liquid from reaching the compressor. They can also be used for cooling the gas stream in many applications.
When natural gas needs to move to a far away location, we like to use the GasPro booster compressors. First, the gas is compressed to high pressure, then it’s allowed through a high-pressure gas line. By doing this compression, the gas moves from a high-pressure spot to a low-pressure spot that can be miles away.
GasPro Vapor Recovery Units (VRU)
GasPro’s VRU’s are built to recover vapours that come from the tanks, at only a few ounces (oz/in2) of pressure. After they are recovered, they are compressed back into the system. The VRU provides an economic benefit to your clients, as well as environmental benefits for all of us.
BTEX stands for Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene and Xylene. These compounds (some of which are carcinogenic) and some GHGs are a by-product of natural gas dehydration systems using glycol as a desiccant. GasPro offers various control systems that can reduce (using a condenser box or a condenser + tank assembly) or completely eliminate (using GasPro’s BTEX VRU) emissions of benzene and other harmful compounds into the atmosphere.
