Gas Processing Plant-Egypt-Benfield Acid Gas Removal

Project Description: 

Processing plant, 2 x 248,000 Sm3/h (210 mmscfd) acid gas removal trains and 3 x 33% export compression trains to an export pressure of 101 bara, to process conventional gas  feed containing up to 8 mol% CO2 and 7 ppmv H2S, and 140 bbl/mmscf condensate.  Unit operations :

  • Separation
  • Acid gas removal utilizing the  Benfield Process (Hot Potassium Carbonate)
  • TEG dehydration
  • Dewpointing by turbo expander
  • Compression
  • Condensate stabilization for storage and transport
  • Condensate storage tanks 2 x 16,724 m3 (105,000 barrels) and export pumps


Product Specifications:
