11:15 AM - 11:45 AM Refreshments and networking break

Applying flow meter measurements to accurately quantify and monitor flaring

11:45 AM - 1:15 PM Innovative and cost-effective strategies for utilisation of flare gas recovery to increase operational profits

Hamdy Faroun, SENIOR PROCESS ENGINEER, EAST ZEIT
Traditionally, low-pressure gas has been disposed of by flaring into the atmosphere. Today this process is becoming increasingly unacceptable as the industry progresses towards eliminating the emission of greenhouse gases and reducing their footprint. Therefore, the demand for techniques that can safely and economically compress low-pressure gas back into the production process is rapidly increasing.

Discover new technologies that facilitate utilisation of recovered gas to enable oil and gas operators to increase their profits. It will also highlight alternatives other than compressor gas recovery units that minimise operational costs. Finally, the workshop will provide insights on technologies such as ejectors for the utilisation of recovered gas to enable flare reduction by 98%.

Attend this workshop to find out how you can make your company more profitable. Workshop leader: Hamdy Faroun, Senior Process Engineer, East Zeit
