Specialized Separation And Filtration Systems
Designed for Complex Contamination Challenges
Enerflex separation and filtration systems clean hydrocarbons to reduce downtime, increase productivity, and lower capital costs with fewer change-outs. Our inlet systems are highly efficient in removing iron oxides, iron sulfides, dirt, and other deformable particles that can contaminate downstream processing equipment.
Custom Solutions for Solids and Liquids — for Every Contaminant Combination
Natural gas and liquids are variable commodities when they come out of the ground – composition is rarely identical or consistent. Standards specify that hydrocarbons are free of particulate solids and liquid water, dehydrated, contain no more than trace amounts of components such as hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, mercaptans, and nitrogen, and contain mercury at less than detectable limits.
Every integrated facility requires inlet separation and filtration, and Enerflex’s inlet designs are based on detailed observations of hundreds of natural gas processing plants around the world.We provide custom solutions to separate and filter every possible combination of contaminant, both solid and liquid, in every flow state.
Enerflex in Action
- Dawson Creek, British Columbia, Canada
200 MMSCFD Two-Phase Sour Gas Processing Facility
Driven by the continued development of the Montney gas play, this large two-phase sour gas processing facility was constructed to process raw natural gas from the South Peace region to meet the extensive scope and timing of the customers’ processing needs. Enerflex engineered, designed, and manufactured a double-train gas processing plant. Phase 1 featured a 100 MMSCFD hydrocarbon dew point plant, amine plant, inlet separator, electric motor drive vapour recovery compression package, acid gas dehydration package, 1,150 HP electric motor drive acid gas compression package, and condensate stabilizer package. In the second phase, Enerflex provided an additional 100 MMSCFD amine plant and hydrocarbon dew point plant.
Enerflex in Alberta, Canada was awarded the process modules on the basis of manufacturing capability and delivery times. Raw natural gas is processed at the plant, meaning that CO₂, natural gas liquids, and H₂S are extracted. The H₂S and CO₂ removed at the plant is blended with plant inlet gas, and transported to the South Peace Pipeline for further processing at the McMahon gas plant. The processed sales gas is then transported via a short sales gas pipeline to the Nova Gas Transmission Groundbirch Pipeline.
