Custom Engineering for Natural Gas Processing Plants

custom engineering for gas conditioning plants

 

Agile Process Solutions, an industry-leading provider of natural gas processing plants and amine treatment systems for removal of CO2 and H2S, is built around a highly competent engineering staff offering many years of experience in site layout and plant design. To this end, our staff utilizes 3D modeling software and printers, high-end simulators, process and instrumentation diagram (P & ID) development and rigorous design protocols to create the safest and most efficient solutions available for piping layout, electrical and process control systems design and routine, high-output plant operation.

 

While Agile maintains an inventory of pre-engineered stock plant designs, equipment and skid-mounted units, our top engineering team objective is always to provide each client with a custom engineered natural gas processing plant solution most appropriate for their production criteria and constraints.

 

The Natural Gas Processing Plant Engineering Process, from Design-to-Fabrication:

The beginning stages of natural gas processing plant engineering consist of meeting with the customer/client and determining their demands/needs for the type of plant that will best suit the type of recovery and refining required. From the early stages, a preliminary PFD (process flow diagram) and P&ID (piping and instrumentation diagram) will be discussed, reviewed, and a rough draft will be composed and submitted to the client for review. After multiple markups and revisions, and a final approval from the client is reached, the early stages of modeling the plant begin. Usually, longer lead items are first considered, so pressure retaining vessels are normally first priority.

 

Next, calculations are required for reconciling several factors in relation to overall plant design. Temperature, pressure, flow rate, seismic activity and wind velocity are accounted for and need to meet specific requirements to be considered good practice. After the right factors are met, the natural gas processing plant design process begins, utilizing computer-based 3D modeling, 3D printing and high-end simulators to achieve the most efficient package design possible that meets all given restraints. Once Agile and the client are both satisfied with design, the fabrication, construction and testing process begins, all performed on site until the client’s plant is disassembled and packaged for transport.

 

Unlike other natural gas processing plant engineering firms, Agile Process Solutions has full in-house manufacturing capability and does not charge a separate “design fee” for these services. It is our sincere belief that, as a natural gas processing plant provider, efficient plant design should be a given. While stock gas processing skids are engineered to exacting standards, some changes are usually required to optimize plants and skid mounted units for each client’s unique production variables.

 

Additional engineering services required to achieve gas treating process refinement for each individual client have been built into our manufacturing process as a routine component of offering the highest value and dependability in natural gas treating and oil & gas separation plants and equipment. You can expect the very best quality from Agile at competitive pricing without sacrificing speed of delivery.
