Hornsea Gas Storage

To optimize safe operations of their gas import and export service, SSE partly owns two major gas storage facilities in East Yorkshire at Hornsea (Atwick) and Aldbrough. The Hornsea site has the capacity to handle 18 million cubic meters of gas per day; enough to service around four million homes.
To dehydrate the gas, the SSE facilities use low-temperature separation, along with a methanol system to prevent hydrate formation. To optimize their methanol system, SSE selected a Frames methanol recovery package to provide a continuous stream of lean methanol to the low-temperature separation unit.
