Gas Plants

Gas plants, also known as Gas Liquid Recovery Units, recover marketable hydrocarbon liquids from gas streams and control sales gas BTU content. Additional benefits include eliminating condensation and the two-phase flow in transmission pipelines while also providing gas with a consistent heating value for fuel to compression and combustion turbines.

The simplest form of liquid recovery units utilizes heat exchangers and an external refrigeration system to cool the gas and separate the hydrocarbon liquids. The separated gas is cross exchanged with the inlet gas for initial cooling. The separated liquid is then level controlled to a stabilizer where the temperature and pressure is controlled to produce a specified vapor pressure product. QBJ gas plants are designed to use mechanical refrigeration, J-T refrigeration, and our proprietary mixed refrigerant system.

Our Condensate Field Stabilization Unit (FSU) uses field proven conventional technology to produce stabilized and transportable product from raw condensate. The condensate FSU is designed for ease of operation (minimal field operational experience), ease of transportation, and reliability under varying conditions. The QBJ Standard FSU Design, allows for quick repeatable deliveries and performance, reducing your time to market. Our units will stabilize hydrocarbon liquids and vapor by reducing Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP) of the hydrocarbon mix, to the level required by our customers, efficiently capturing natural gas liquids (NGL) in their production or gas plant streams.

Advantages of QBJ Field Stabilization Units:

  • Easy to transport (no permit loads required)
  • Short installation time
  • Easy to operate
  • Low maintenance
  • Quick delivery
