Treating Amine in Sour Gas Profitably
As part of our commitment to continuous improvement, Shell Catalysts & Technologies has learned from operations to push performance limits. With ADIP-ULTRA, we have significantly upgraded the solvent performance which offers a step change to the industry’s CO2 removal capability.
By analysing proven operational performance through historical data, performance test runs, etc. combined with de-risking for improved modeling capabilities we can deliver more efficient designs with stable operation.
The end result is a sharper design that can result in CO2 removal capacity increased up to 25% as well as up to 30% reduction in regeneration energy. This also translates to up to 30% reduction on equipment costs, increasing project NPV, Reduced circulation rates, more throughput, and an added ability to handle more challenging gas.
