Flare Gas Recovery

About our flare gas recovery

Traditionally, flare gas recovery is done with re-compression, for example, either for enhanced oil recovery or by re-injecting into the main process. This adds cost but does not add income directly. We believe that it is possible to use a lean and mean process train to turn flare gas into profitable products rather than waste. Depending on the location and available infrastructure, the valuable product can be electricity, LPG, or pipeline-quality natural gas (in order of increasing profitability). In the absence of a nearby gas grid pipeline, production of CNG, LNG, or synthetic crude oil, methanol or dimethylether (via a GTL process) may be more suitable.

Our approach to flare gas recovery

Each gas contaminant and each gas product influence the optimal lineup of treatment steps, and expertise is required to quickly evaluate these. An internal study focusing on Iran has shown that approximately 50-70% of the currently flared gas resources in Iran can actually be made into valuable products with a payback period of five years as shown in figure below. The exact payback time depends on the gas flow, the caloric value, and the amount of sour gas contaminants. Based on this study and more than 3 decades of experience in the upstream oil & gas industry, we at Frames are able to help you select the product and the processes required, and evaluate the economics. Together with you we will work in the whole trajectory from conceptual design to plant start-up.
