Associated Gas

Challenges of Associated Gas

Associated gas, often referred to as flare gas, is considered an unwanted byproduct of crude oil extraction due to its lower commodity value and varied composition. Hydrocarbons in the associated gas stream are both flammable and potent greenhouse gasses which must either be recovered or burned on site. This burning, or flaring, accounts for roughly 400 million tons of CO2 every year.

The ZHRO System

This breakthrough 9000CMT System successfully captures and reforms the entire associated gas stream that might otherwise be flared, vented or sent to midstreams for processing.  Each of these mobile systems can provide enough consistent, reliable pipeline quality methane to produce 1MW to 2MW of electricity. Additionally this allows for a significant reduction in emissions.

Benefits of the ZHRO System

TARGET MARKET USES

The 9000CMT System reforms the entire associated gas stream, including all Natural Gas Liquids (NGL’s), including ethane and propane/LPG, into a consistent and reliable stream of pipeline quality methane; equal to 90%+ pure methane produced from the reformed associated gasses in the original wellhead stream.

ENVIRONMENTAL ECONOMICS:

Globally, more than 150 billion cubic meters of natural gas is flared each year. This equates to 25% of actual natural gas use. The amount of flared gas in the U.S. is equal to the emissions of 93 million cars. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") has issued certain regulations and proposed others to be finalized in 2016 that severely limit flaring and venting from oil and gas wells

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, in 2013, more than 260 billion cubic feet of methane was flared in the United States alone. The CMT System produces a 90+ methane number of pipeline quality methane from the otherwise wasted flare gas, which will then be used to generate clean, efficient, inexpensive electricity. The CMT System is named for the approximate 1500-9000 metric tons of carbon saved from the atmosphere each year by the use of each system when off-setting the use of diesel fuel, providing:

  1. Independent, on-site power supply using own natural gas
  2. Avoids the escape or “leak” of methane into the atmosphere, which has 21 times the global warming potential of CO2
  3. Saves 1500-9000 cubic metric tons of carbon annually when compared to the use of diesel for electricity generation
  4. Eliminates the need to truck in diesel fuel and potential re-injection of gasses into oil reservoir

What's in the ZHRO CMT System

Associated Gas Product Sheet

Monetizing Wasted Gases into Methane

The ZHRO CMT System provides consistent and reliable methane through catalytic reformation of all components of the associated gas stream.

What it does?

The ZHRO 9000CMT Reformation System takes any inlet gas stream (flare gas, propane, LPG, etc.) and reforms them into a consistent, reliable, pipeline quality methane:

  • Producing pipeline quality methane (natural gas)
  • Mobile, modular and stackable design
  • One day assembly or disassembly
  • Capable of processing 280MCFD - 2,800 MCFD
  • One single skid system produces enough methane to power 2MW
  • One control module operates up to five single skids
  • 1MW up to 10MW per whole system installation
  • Systems can be paralleled to accommodate up to 100MW
  • NO CAPEX from customer
  • Early adopter advantage using customer's current diesel Gensets-
    • With manufacture's duel fuel kit (gas blending)
    • Displacing up to 70% of diesel fuel

ZHRO’s area of focus includes:

  • Replacing diesel fuel use
  • Eliminating flare on-site
  • Providing power generation for-
    • Implementation on-site
    • Implementation into the local community
    • Implementation into the grid
  • Eliminating 90% of toxic emissions
  • Providing clean methane for gas lift
  • Allowing for excess NGLs (propane/LPG) to areas of higher and better use/value for reformation and consumption such as-
    • Remote and stranded sites
    • Drilling and fracking
    • Island communities
    • Mining
  • Creating on-site virtual pipeline of methane
  • Enabling combined heat and power (CHP) applications
