Netherlands-based gas separation systems supplier Twister is pleased to announce it has entered a joint development programme with PETRONAS to leverage Twister® systems for the monetisation and processing of acid gas fields that possess substantial amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2).

Part of the programme is to develop, fabricate and test a skid-mounted crystalliser vessel for qualification, confirming the functionality and proving the concept of melting CO2 solids and producing liquid CO2 ready for reinjection.

The crystalliser vessel is similar to the proprietary Twister Hydrate Separator in that both technologies can handle a solid phase, although the crystalliser vessel operates in a low-temperature cryogenic environment.

The qualification test is scheduled for Q2 2018 in PETRONAS’ UTP facilities in Malaysia and is a key component of the joint technology programme, which includes the development of the Twister Supersonic Separator for CO2 removal.

Twister is proud to have achieved this milestone in this development programme.
