During storage, lighter hydrocarbons that have dissolved in crude oil evaporate or flash and accumulate in the tank. Tank vapor compositions are often heavier in composition than other sources of associated gas and may include harmful volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Venting, flaring, or incinerating these tank vapors is harmful to the environment, as such, company ESG measures, legislation, and taxation regulate how operators manage tank vapors both in the U.S. and globally.
Typical vapor recovery units (VRU) only compress tank vapors. The high BTU compressed gas which this process yields has limited applications and is awkward to transport, which therefore limits its economic value. GTUIT brings the next generation of vapor recovery unit. Our proprietary Rich Vapor Monetization (RVM) system uses compression and refrigeration to condense out the lucrative Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) which can then be stored and transported as a liquid. Any residual gas is conditioned and can be used as fuel at site or to be exported by any standard method.
Combusting destroys a source of additional revenue and profits plus increases your company’s risk for environmental fines. With GTUIT’s RVM system, operators can significantly reduce site emissions of VOCs and CO2 to meet and exceed ESG targets. GTUIT’s proven tank vapor capture process condenses the most valuable NGL components from the tank vapors, allowing them to be transported and sold in the market. NGL revenue generated ensures our solution is not only environmentally sustainable, it is economically lucrative.
Based on raw gas parameters, composition and flow rate, the correct combination of GTUIT Technology can be specified to meet your requirements.
