MEG is one of the most commonly used reagents for hydrate inhibition in production pipelines. It is recovered and reinjected to minimize the operating and environmental costs associated with MEG replacement and disposal.
PUREMEG MEG reclamation and regeneration units not only regenerate the MEG by boiling off the pipeline water, they also remove salts and other solids to achieve the required outlet glycol purity. Dissolved salts in formation water, pipeline production chemicals, and pipe scale all have the potential to scale or foul both subsea and topside processing equipment. This MEG recovery system is therefore an essential component of pipeline flow assurance.
The cost of MEG replacement can surpass millions of dollars per year. Our proprietary brine displacement and divalent salt removal systems minimize both MEG deterioration and losses, significantly reducing MEG replacement requirements compared with competing systems.
In addition to our reclamation technology, we can provide customized site support contracts covering training, installation, commissioning and startup to long-term operational assistance, data acquisition, conditional monitoring, and predictive maintenance services.
Our dedicated MEG Reclamation R&D facilities at the University of Manchester in England and at our Technology Center in Houston support product development and provide testing of your process fluids as part of our life-of-field program.
