Methods of oil associated gas utilization: technological and economic aspects, new approach to its treatment based on membrane technology

Authors: M.A. Gulyansky, A.A. Kotenko, E.G. Krasheninnikov, S.V. Potekhin (GRASYS, RF, Moscow)

Key words: oil associated gas, methods of oil associated gas treatment, membrane technology.

The article deals with utilization of the oil associated gas (OAG). The traditional well known OAG treatment methods are described, their restrictions are revealed for the OAG treatment. The membrane technology OAG treatment is presented with the new hollow fiber membranes CarboPEEK. The comparison of the new OAG treatment membrane technology with the traditional methods reveals its high attraction. The success of the membrane method for OAG treatment is demonstrated in the number of installations. The fist industry-level membrane plant has been working since 2010 for simultaneous gas drying and hydrogen sulfide and mercaptans removal. The parameters of the plant collected during its operation are shown. The results to be achieved in membrane OAG treatment are described.
