Reducing CO2 Emissions and Recovering Condensate

Page last modified
February 22 2024

LP-CRS is designed to enhance condensate recovery from associated gases (typical recovery ranging from 50 to 100 bbls per MMSCFD of gas). The main objective of the technology is to reduce CO2 emissions by 20%-30% by means of recovering condensates (C4+ components) from the associated gases which will be otherwise flared or vented. The system uses the Evaporative Dew-Point Control Unit (EDPCU) which employs the Joule-Thompson cooling effect coupled with evaporative cooling to enhance condensate recovery. While particularly advantageous for low pressure systems operating at < 20 barG, the technology is operable for higher working pressures.

Since its commercialization, the technology has been successfully implemented in four different fields in Malaysia and Philippines, with many more prospects in progress. The implementation has been adapted to a variety of facilities; wellhead platform, FPSO, and central processing platform.

LP-CRS technology is the winner of the "Spotlight Technology Award" of OTC Asia 2018. 

IChemE Malaysia Awards 2018 for "Oil and Gas" category.

Patented Technology (International Application No.: PCT/MY2020/050014) with a readiness level tier TRL-9 (System Adequacy Validated in Field).
