Due to a combination of low temperatures and high pressure levels, hydrate formation is likely to occur in several types of gas streams. Left untreated, it can cause serious problems. Frames has a long track record in the prevention of hydrate formation through the introduction of hydrate inhibitors into the production flow. Our many years of field experience and process simulation enable us to select the most suitable inhibitor and determine the required amounts to be injected.
Hydrate inhibitors such as monoethylene glycol (MEG), diethylene glycol (DEG) and methanol (MeOH) are costly, and so their recovery and reuse are important from both an OPEX and sustainability perspective. Frames uses various methods for recovering the inhibitors, depending on the specific chemical used and the amount of water and/or salts expected, and the level of purity required.
