Inlet gas is split into two flows: one is chilled at HE-1 Heat Exchanger, another one at HE-2 Heat Exchanger. To ensure
deep liquid extraction in 3S-separator, the inlet flow temperature is about (70) ( 90) oC. Cooled inlet gas after mixing
goes to 3S-separator where it splits into two flows: treated gas, and rich gas-liquid flow (15-30% of inlet gas volume); this
flow comes to Sep1 low-temperature separator. Gas flow from Sep1 separator mixes with treated gas from 3S-separator
outlet; this flow comes to HE-1 where it heats up by cooling inlet flow and is now NGL plant sales gas containing mostly
methane and small amount of ethane. Unstable liquid from Sep1 throttles down and goes to the HE-2, cooling part of
inlet gas flow by partial evaporation of the liquid (i.e. HE-2 acts here as an evaporator). After HE-2 rich gas-liquid flow
(ethanized condensate) is processed at the conventional LTC unit.

NGL Recovery: Problems & Solutions

Current Industry practice


Low Temperature Condensation (LTC) is most popular solution for NGL recovery
LTC ensures deep NGL recovery
LTC units are expensive (CAPEX & OPEX)

ENGO Engineering provides engineering solutions for deep ethane and NGL recovery
with CAPEX saving up to 40% maintaining up to 98% level of recovery

There are two different solutions*

Solution A Solution B
Combination Application
of conventional LTC & of new
3S-separation scheme

LTC+3S LT3S
for lean gas for wet gas

* The solution choice depends on service conditions


Solution A for NGL Recovery at Gas Plant

Combination of conventional LTC and 3S-separation


LTC+3S
Inlet gas goes to 3S-separation unit from dehydration unit
70-90 % of inlet gas is processed to sales gas specs at 3S-separation unit
