UOP technology to clean natural gas on FPSO vessels in Brazil  

By Gerald Ondrey |

UOP LLC (Des Plaines, Ill.; www.uop.com), a Honeywell company, announced today that Modec, Inc. has commissioned a UOP Separex membrane system for processing natural gas on a new Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel. The FPSO is using the Separex membrane system and adsorbents to remove carbon dioxide and water from 5 million standard cubic meters of natural gas per day from the Lula oil field off the coast of Brazil. The FPSO was commissioned in July 2011. A second FPSO, still in construction and also using UOP Separex technology, is expected to be commissioned in September 2012. The Lula oil field is located in the Santos Basin off the coast of Brazil. The field contains the largest oil discovery in the Western Hemisphere in the last 30 years and is believed to contain 8.3-billion barrels of oil and natural gas. The field is operated by the Brazilian oil company Petrobras in partnership with BG (England) and Galp (Portugal). Separex technology upgrades natural gas streams by removing carbon dioxide and water vapor. These contaminants must be removed to meet the quality standards specified by pipeline transmission and distribution companies as well as end users of the natural gas. The technology operates with…
