Hydrate prevention tops the list of applications most valuable to the upstream petroleum industry.
If there’s an issue that keeps plant operators up nights, it has to be hydrate prevention. With more than 80 years’ combined oilfield experience, the Methanol Recovery Technologies management team built our methanol recovery unit to solve the industry’s methanol management issues. With the implementation of this technology, there will be much less pressure to minimize methanol usage. More than 90% of the methanol will be available to be used again. Like our “Boomerang” logo implies… when it’s thrown properly, it will circle right back to you; the same is true of methanol.
Another key application is pipeline pressure testing. Typically, the pressure-testing medium is a water-methanol mixture. After pressure testing, the methanol water mixture is disposed of using a licensed injection well.
