What Design Should I Use For My Condensate Stabilizer System?

The installation of condensate stabilizers throughout the various shale plays across America is becoming the new rage for gas liquid processing. First, much of the shale gas being produced is so rich in hydrocarbon liquid that the raw condensate production is literally flooding production and processing facilities. Secondly, the ability to now export crude condensate (as long as it has…

Collaboration Shortens Project Schedules

In the design of any new gas plant fabrication or facility, it is crucial to recognize the importance of the relationship between the design and the final construction. Both processes must work together and be viewed as a fully-integrated system in order to achieve a final successful outcome. In a broad sense, design involves the creation of a description of…
