Selection of an Optimum Gasification Product

By Armen Abazajian, WorleyParsons |

Equipment for generating synthesis gas (syngas; mostly CO and H2) is typically the most expensive part of an overall gasification complex. Understandably, the owners of gasification assets seek the highest value for the syngas produced by these assets. The methodology used in this study describes which gasification products may yield the highest value for the resulting syngas, given certain input data and assumptions. For the purposes of the study, treated syngas means dry, purified, non-shifted synthesis gas. The main variables in these calculations were the following: • The chemical composition of the raw syngas (itself a function of the raw material being gasified) • The chemical and elemental composition of the final products or their energy content • Capital cost of the syngas conversion technology • Operating costs for the syngas conversion From these variables, a value-ranking of nine different final gasification products was developed. Gasification fills demand gap To most individuals in the petroleum and petrochemical industries, it is clear that the production of onshore or shallow offshore conventional petroleum (so called “cheap oil”) is not meeting the world’s demand for carbon and…
