Aspen Engineering Services offers a cost-effective solution for flare reduction, gas conditioning and NGL recovery. The NGL Pro process integrates dehydration, compression, cooling and conditioning, eliminating the need for costly glycol and refrigeration systems. Hydrate formation is precluded by a heat integration system. Consequently, no antifreeze additives are required.
The NGL Pro process can be coupled with the LNG-Pure process to co-produce LNG and NGL, and thereby minimize flaring. Sites that can consume the residue gas for power will eliminate flaring completely.
