Ejector technology specialist Transvac was kept busy at this years Adipec exhibition as its zero-flare ejector solution gains traction with major operators.
Peter Ainge, Transvac’s marketing manager commented, "Flaring is a huge issue in the Middle East and operators are taking seriously the challenge of zero-flaring.
"It’s an important market for us, and although it’s still regarded as a new application of ejector technology, Transvac has many zero-flare ejectors working in the region."
Traditionally in the oil and gas industry, waste and surplus gas has been disposed of by flaring to atmosphere. Today this process is becoming increasingly unacceptable as the Industry progresses towards eliminating the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere whilst simultaneously conserving energy. Therefore, the demand for equipment that can safely and economically compress waste and surplus gas back into the production process is rapidly increasing.
Ejectors are ideally suited to this application because they employ high-pressure gas (or liquid) energy to entrain and compress waste and surplus gas to a pressure where the gas can be recycled back into the production process or used as a fuel gas.
Transvac has supplied many flare reduction ejectors to operators in the region such as ADMA OPCO, ADCO, and PDO. "Having these great references is critical to instilling confidence in our technology," says David Hoon, Transvac’s technical director.
"Ejectors are very simple devices, with no moving parts and requiring no maintenance. We know they work reliably, it’s just getting the message out there. Adipec has been a great way of doing just that, speaking face to face with engineers."
