LO-CAT Plants At A Geothermal Power Facility Operating Well After 15 Years
By Gary J. Nagl, vice president, Merichem Chemicals & Refinery Services LLC, Gas Technology Products Division
Geothermal power plants are environmentally attractive since they employ a renewable energy source which, unlike wind and solar, is continuous. However, geothermal steam contains varying amounts of non-condensable gases (NCG) such as carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen sulfide (H2S), mercury vapor (Hg), and, in some cases, benzene (C6H6), which if not disposed of properly may cause environmental, health, and safety problems. This article describes the operating history of three geothermal power facilities which have been operating for over 15 years while meeting strict California emission regulations.

Unstable oil prices and a global economic downturn place exploration and production (E&P) asset teams under pressure to more precisely characterize prospects and existing dormant assets. At the same time, data managers look to stretch shrinking information technology budgets. These challenges are particularly acute for development of unconventional resources, which entail large risks and require specialized engineering and seismic interpretation techniques.
