Flare Gas Recovery Systems (FGRS) are specialized compression packages, which aim to recover and repurpose gasses and emissions, such as methane/LPGs and sulfur dioxide, that would normally be burned during the flaring process. Key to the safe operation of refineries and petrochemical facilities, the process involves capturing the gas from the flare knock-out vessel and compressing it using liquid ring compressors. The so-recovered gases can be reused within the facility’s fuel gas system, as a refinery feedstock or for re-injection.
Gas flaring is generated by the combustion of associated gas coming from industrial processes including oil and gas recovery and petrochemical production. It is one of the most significant contributors to the increase in greenhouse emissions. Flare Gas Recovery Systems are one of the cleanest solutions to minimize or eliminate gas flaring.
