The process used most often for removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from natural gas (referred to as acid gas removal or gas sweetening) requires the use of amine gas treating plants. Amine gas treatment utilizes a continuous process wherein acid gas compounds are selectively absorbed from the gas stream under conditions of high pressure and moderate temperature. Conditions in the regenerator area of high temperature and low pressure cause the acid gas compounds to desorb from the amine solution and the cooled solution is returned to the high pressure absorber for removal of additional acid gas compounds.
For gas streams with excess H2S and CO2, Agile Process Solutions offers custom and pre-engineered amine regeneration skid units with available gas train and TEG (glycol) dehydration units for excess water removal. Amine gas treating plants are our specialty and are built from Agile stock designs, or custom built to customer designated specifications.
Stock amine gas treating plants range in size from 60 GPM through 400 GPM and Agile offers design capability for amine treatment plants up to 2000 GPM per train. We work with slab or skid-mounted designs and offer superior site planning and accessibility. Agile Process Solutions has treated as much as 200 million cubic feet per day for clients, and built treating facilities capable of more than a billion cubic feet per day. In its previous incarnation, the company averaged over thirty amine gas treating plants sold per year, along with liquids recovery plants, dehydrators, stabilizers and other related treating and processing equipment.
Agile typically utilizes only brand new product in its plants, but is also capable of providing lower cost refurbishments from its stock yard inventory, all ASME code compliant and x-rayed for integrity. Our stock amine gas treating plants can be modified and delivered upon the client’s request and specifications. Agile Process Solutions offers startup assistance, ongoing technical support and delivery speeds designed for the middle market — gas producers seeking the best overall value and adaptability of cost and speed targeted to specific projects with no loss in long-term plant quality and dependability.
Agile facilities can be located where there is one well, or where multiple gas streams are gathered for proper treatment before reaching the pipeline.
