Enhanced Oil/Natural Gas Recovery

Natural Gas Upgrading/Wobbe Index Modification

Enhanced recovery projects have grown in importance as world energy prices have risen and new production technologies have been developed. Air Products’ industrial gases are being used to significantly increase recoverable hydrocarbon reserves which results in increased revenues for oil and gas producers. Our Enhanced Recovery technology spans the production of high-purity nitrogen for applications such as pressure maintenance, miscible displacements, and recovery of natural gas liquids (NGL). Nitrogen rejection plants have further utility in Btu upgrading for sales gas. Air Products has successfully supplied multiple nitrogen injection and nitrogen rejection projects and continues to be at the forefront of developing enhanced recovery techniques involving non-hydrocarbon gases.

Nitrogen

When the BTU content of natural gas is too high, nitrogen is often added so the gas can reach pipeline quality and be saleable. Our teams across the globe can use their knowledge of your industry and application to provide you with a nitrogen supply and technology solution to meet your needs.

Nitrogen Recovery Unit

Low BTU natural gas must be upgraded to reach pipeline quality and be saleable. Once nitrogen is removed from natural gas via a nitrogen rejection unit, it can be vented or re-injected for enhanced oil and/or gas recovery. Whether the nitrogen content in the feed gas is fixed or varies widely, Air Products has the NRU to help turn your natural gas into a profitable commodity.
