Associated petroleum gas (APG) is by-product fr om oil recovery. It was considered as oil contaminant and has been flared directly within the oil production facility at the oil producing well, which resulted in environment contamination. A short while ago, APG, which comes with the oil recovery, was considered as a valuable product for further processing. Hence, oil companies started placing greater focus on efficient use of associated gas.

Based on production and gas disposition balance, as well as on technical-economic analysis, identified major ways to use associated gas of White Tiger field. Efficient use of fuel and energy resources is one of the most prioritized issues of social and economic development of Vietnam, especially for Southern regions of the country, wh ere oil and gas production from White Tiger field is placed. Primarily, flared associated gas can be wisely used for fuel and energy needs of the field and technological processes of oil production, while the remaining gas can be delivered to the shore-based consumers. The maximum disposition of associated gas at White Tiger field aimed on process needs of the field by use in power units, covering the needs for heating energy during gas treatment and transportation, gas lift systems and gas transportation on-shore. The article covers the stages of implementing the system for APG treatment and disposition at White Tiger field.
