Process Design

Compositional Assessment

  • Determine processing requirements
  • Stream specification requirements, quantities, value
  • Contaminants to be removed
  • Identify additional stream sampling/analysis requirements
  • Blending analysis

 

Simulation

Simulation of natural gas processing facilities, including acid gas removal, liquids recovery, contaminant removal.  Simulation is undertaken in a logical manner, to yield an optimized process.  Mainstream industry software is used in developing new or modifying existing models.
