Routine flaring has become far too common practice in oil and gas exploration, production, and processing operations. It is estimated that 5,200 billion cubic feet or 147 billion cubic meters of gas is flared worldwide per day, equating to 3.5% of global gas production. 90% of the total gas flared occurs in upstream production areas, where gas may be stranded or isolated by lack of infrastructure. Gas flaring has been routinely used to deal with stranded gas issues such as physical location, limited infrastructure and contaminants, including hydrogen sulfide (H2S).
With GTUIT’s modular, scalable flare capture system, gas flaring is all but eliminated, turning flares into usable energy, reducing emissions and meeting ESG targets, while generating revenue.
The GTUIT system enables oil producers to improve business sustainability, meet ESG and legislative requirements, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by eliminating unnecessary flaring of valuable products that can be efficiently captured and monetized.
Our design is aimed at the sweet spot of thermodynamics, material science, and oilfield operations. The process opens with proprietary flow control to deliver product at a consistent flow rate and pressure. Through compression and GTUIT’s patent-pending chiller technology, heavier natural gas liquids (NGLs) or flare gas liquids (FGLs) are condensed out of the gas. These liquids are often considered an impurity for producers looking to sell methane, however, NGLs are a highly valuable commodity and recovery dramatically reduces emissions and conserves energy for later use.
Based on raw gas parameters, composition and flow rate, the correct combination of GTUIT Technology can be specified to meet your requirements.
