ABSTRACT

A UK University will research on the economic viability of using gas to wire technology as an integral component of gas flare management. The objective is to evaluate the technological feasibility and economic viability of purifying potential flare gas and using the recovered components as raw materials for other processes. Partners are sought from the chemical processing and oil and gas sectors to develop the processes and technologies for recovery of natural gas under the call CE-SC5-06-2018.


FULL DESCRIPTION

The environment is increasingly being endangered by the introduction of greenhouse gases which are continuously produced from gas flaring due to intense processing in the oil and gas sector.

The study proposed here aims to research on the economic viability of using gas to wire (GTW) technology as an integral component of gas flare management.

The key objective would be to evaluate the technological feasibility and economic viability of purifying potential flare gas and using the recovered components as raw materials for other processes.

The benefit is twofold; natural gas (CH4) and H2 would be recovered from flue gas which could be used for other multiple downstream processes, complement the shortfall in energy supply especially in developing countries, and massive reduction on the impact of flared gas on the environment.

The aim is to significantly decrease the volume of gas flared in oil and gas processing environments, increase process selectivity, and higher recovery rates of valuable raw materials in the form of methane and other valuable chemicals (critical raw materials) thereby unlocking substantial reserves of new or currently unexploited/underexploited resources within the EU.

Moreover, the project aims at significantly increasing economic performance of such processes, while also improving significantly the health, safety and environmental performance of the operations throughout the whole life cycle which is considered, including a reduction in waste, and emissions generation and a better recovery of resources from generated waste.

The University already has 3 academic partners and 2 Industrial and now seeks 1 further industrial partner from the chemical processing industry and in the oil and gas sectors to develop the processes and technologies for recovery of natural gas.


Call CE-SC5-06-2018 - New technologies for the enhanced recovery of by-products (RIA)
Application - Two Stage Process

EOI Deadline: 31st January 2018
Call Deadline: 27th February 2018


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: The University now seeks partners who have expertise in chemical processing and who also operate within the oil and gas sectors to develop the processes and technologies for recovery of natural gas.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The University has already selected 5 partners to join this project - 3 academic and 2 industry partners

1 x Industrial Partner is now needed.

Type of partner: The University is looking for partners who are preferably from the chemical processing industry who have experience and expertise within the oil and gas sectors.

Role: To develop the processes and technologies for recovery of natural gas.

Provide data and samples for analysis

Allow access to their production environment to enable full appreciation of their processes

Guide and/or support the design of a new reactor


Advantages & innovations:

The project will bring a significant positive impact on the environment and develop a cost-effective solution of gas flare management. The products recovered in the process, the natural gas (CH4) and H2, could be used as raw materials for other multiple downstream processes, complement the shortfall in energy supply especially in developing countries, and massive reduction on the impact of flared gas on the environment.
