BCCK, a leader in engineering, procurement, fabrication and field construction services, is offering G2R-Flex, a patent-pending technology designed to optimise propane recoveries
BCCK’s exclusive G2R-Flex is a natural gas liquids (NGL) extraction process delivering maximum profitability through higher plant performance and greater recoveries. As a complete turnkey solution, G2R-Flex can recover up to 99% of propane while sustaining a high rejection rate of ethane. Utilising an add-on package design, G2R-Flex, is connected to existing gas subcooled process (GSP) plants to reduce ethane recovery and increase propane recovery.
Jamey Wasson, director of process engineering, BCCK, said, “G2R-Flex enables higher recoveries at existing cryogenic processing plants. Typical GSP recoveries in ethane rejection are 20% ethane and 95% propane. Our new technology can improve that range with a ‘bolt-on’ package.”
With no additional residue compression required, G2R-Flex offers a 50% reduction in facility propane refrigeration requirements. Using equipment already available, G2R-Flex consists of a set of small pumps, vessel and heat exchangers, and requires no additional compression or power.
Wasson added, “G2R-Flex was designed as a simple and efficient recovery method to provide cost-effective results to exceed our customer’s expectations. With increased propane prices, BCCK’s GSP process has made it possible to improve recoveries without having to install a new facility.”
