Oil / Condensate Storage Tank Vent Gas
HY-BON/EDI is the global leader in the capture of methane gas from storage tanks, with thousands of successful applications across the globe. This high BTU gas stream is also high in VOC’s – and is one of the most potent greenhouse gases with 23 times the impact of Carbon Dioxide (CO₂). HY-BON/EDI is also a U.S. leader in Carbon Dioxide (CO₂) vent gas capture & recovery.
Oil and Strorage Tank Vapor Recovery and Field Gas Gathering - One of the largest sources of methane emissions in the Oil & Gas Industry is the flaring and venting of Associated Gas from Oil Production Facilities. Two of the largest contributors are 1) Storage Tank Vent Gas at 26.6 Bcf per year - 2) Well Venting and Flaring at 18 Bcf per year.
Methane vent gas emissions are lost from storage tanks at a rate of approx 26.6 Bcf per year in the United States alone.
Flash Losses - occur when crude is trasnferred from containment at a high pressure to containment at a lower pressure
Working Losses - occur when crude levels change and when crude in the storage tank is agitated
Standing Losses - occur with daily and seasonal pressure and temperature changes
Vapor Recovery Units (VRU) - One of the Best Management Practices in the STAR program is the utilization of vapor recovery units (VRU's) to capture these methane vent gas emissions. Benefits of vapor recovery unit (VRU) utilization include:
1) Capture up to 95% of hydrocarbon vapors being vented from storage tanks
2) Recovered vapors have higher Btu content than pipeline quality natural gas
3) Recovered vapors are more valuable than natural gas and have multiple uses, including condensate recovery
Why vent gas dollars (profits) to the atmosphere - an average oilfield stock tank emits significant quatities of methane gas 24/7.
Wellhead / Casinghead Gas
Oil companies across the globe vent casinghead gas in order to increase production from older wells. HY-BON/EDI has over 15 years experience helping operators capture this vent gas – both maximizing the value of the vent gas & increasing oil production.
Casinghead Gas - most mature formations produce more oil if the gas pressure on the casing (annulus) is reduced. This is often accomplished by venting the casinghead gas at or near the wellhead.
Examine the profit making potential of a HY-BON/EDI casing head pressure reduction system. The HY-BON/EDI PRO-Boost System can automatically reduce back pressure in the well annulus, allowing gas and fluids to flow easily into the well bore, significantly increasing production. HY-BON/EDI's PRO-Boost System operates on pressure demand, allowing the well bore to remain clear and stable, resulting in a steady flow of gas and fluids. Units available for rental, lease or purchase.
Gas Pressure Booster Systems - Within a general pressure range of 0 - 1250 psi, and for volumes up to 5000 MCFD, we design and install gas booster packages, frequently in tandem with HY-BON/EDI vapor recovery packages. Applications vary, and each case should be analyzed. HY-BON/EDI has the technical expertise, the fabrication capabilties, and the experience necessary to design gas pressure booster and vapor recovery systems tailored to meet your needs.
Offshore Vent Gas
HY-BON/EDI is a leader in the capture of offshore vent gas. In these applications, space and weight are critical - and our unique designs and innovative approach allow our customers to successfully and economically capture this vent gas.
