UOP Technology Selected by Petrobras for Natural Gas Processing in Brazil

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 6/26/2013, Location: South America

UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, announced that its technology has been contracted by PNBV, a subsidiary of Petrobras, to supply UOP Separex™ membrane systems to process natural gas aboard four Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels.

The vessels will process natural gas extracted from Petrobras’ Lula pre-salt oil reserves, one of the largest and most significant worldwide oil discoveries in recent years.

Honeywell’s UOP Separex membrane systems will be installed aboard the FPSOs to remove carbon dioxide and water from 7 million standard cubic meters of natural gas per day. Earlier this year, Honeywell’s UOP announced a similar project with Petrobras for eight FPSO units to be operated in Brazil’s Santos basin oil fields.

“The high levels of carbon dioxide, space limitations, and extreme environmental conditions make natural gas clean-up in the Brazilian pre-salt fields a challenge, but UOP Separex technology was designed to excel under these circumstances,” said Rebecca Liebert, senior vice president and general manager for Honeywell’s UOP gas processing and hydrogen business unit. “Separex systems are compact and solvent-free, and are often ideal for difficult-to-treat gas streams in remote locations, making it well-suited for offshore gas processing. We are pleased Petrobras has once again accepted this technology.”

In addition to providing Separex technology, Honeywell’s UOP will provide ongoing offshore technical support and staff training for the project, which is expected to start up throughout 2016 and 2017.
