Suez Oil & Gas Systems custom designs glycol regeneration packages to recondition glycol used for processes such as hydrate inhibition and gas dehydration.
The formation of gas hydrates can lead to significant production and safety issues in drilling operations as the solid hydrate material can plug flow lines and equipment. Therefore, to supress the formation of hydrates glycol, typically monoethylene glycol (MEG), is injected into the well. The MEG that returns from the well is termed Rich MEG and contains significant quantities of water, dissolved salts and other contaminants. Suez Oil & Gas Systems custom designs glycol regeneration systems to strip the absorbed water, salts, and contaminants from the Rich MEG to produce Lean MEG that can be recycled to storage tanks and production wells.
