Profit From Pressure BrochureSource: Energy Recovery
Success in the oil & gas industry today is measured by performance, production and profits. As margins continue to tighten, waste – whether it’s upstream, midstream or downstream – is not an option.
Generating Greater Energy Efficiencies
Energy efficiencies have increased significantly since 2007, thanks to investments in new technologies (source: IPIECA), but there’s also been a corresponding increase in energy needs. The growth in older fields; the requirements of enhanced oil and gas recovery and water reinjection techniques; the increased volumes of crude oil and gas being processed; the rise in sour gas fields; minimizing the space, footprint and energy usage on offshore infrastructure, such as Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) units – all of these factors necessitate more energyintensive processes than ever before. In addition, midstream industrial processes such as gas sweetening – where various compositions of amines are used to remove hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2) from gases – also consume significant amounts of energy at high costs.
