Canada’s ProSep Inc is to supply a US$3.5 million gas membrane system to a large independent North American oil and gas company for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) in Texas.
The ProSep membrane equipment, designed to reduce CO2 content in natural gas from 94% to below 10%, will produce an upgraded CO2 stream for use in CO2 flooding associated with EOR activities.
“We expect the market for our gas membrane systems to continue growing as efforts are ongoing to expand crude oil supply via the use of EOR activities,” said Jacques Drouin, president and CEO of ProSep Inc. “Our Houston team’s expertise in designing and delivering highly efficient gas processing solutions has been key to our success. ProSep’s modular membrane design allows us to seamlessly increase capacity of existing gas processing trains, an ideal offering for enhanced oil recovery projects.”
ProSep is scheduled to deliver the gas membrane system in the third quarter of 2010.
