Event description

Description

Near Infrared spectroscopy is allowing production and blending facilities to optimize their production, increasing yields and profitability. While natural gas prices remain low, the price of natural gas liquids, condensates and crude oil are all recovering. This improves the so called “frac-spread” and makes gas fractionation and the production of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), natural gas liquids (NGL) and condensate more profitable. Moreover, there is increasing demand for both field and plant condensate for use as diluent in transporting heavy crude and for blending into crude oil to increase volumes. This increase in demand is coupled with a reduction in US production and is resulting in condensate trading at a high value relative to crude.

The increase in price and demand for hydrocarbon liquids make process optimization to increase yield especially advantageous. Advances in near infrared spectroscopy have occurred which allow us to implement process analytical solutions to real time optimization problems. This technology is being applied throughout the oil patch in such applications as:

• Optimizing de-ethanizers to increase LPG yield,

• LPG blending,

• Optimizing condensate stabilizers to increase product yield,

• Condensate blending,

• Crude Oil blending, and

• Real time monitoring of pipelined products.

Correct implementation of spectroscopic solutions in these applications can increase product yield and product quality while reducing energy costs and environmental emissions.

The Verax CTX analyzer is presented and its advantages in these applications are outlined. As well, some specific applications will be discussed and the process and economic payback will be presented.
