Global Petroleum Show (GPS), North America’s leading energy event, brings together over 51,000 thought leaders, influencers and professionals from around the globe. Officials from government, national and international energy companies across the entire supply chain convene to share innovative technologies and engage in complex and controversial discussions aimed to shape the future of the energy industry.
The Oil & Gas sector is looking at the development of energy efficiency solutions aimed to reduce carbon footprint while maintaining competitiveness. The conversion of waste heat into useful power represents a viable and profitable solution to hit these targets.
In this framework, Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology represents a feasible option to exploit waste heat and boost the overall efficiency of the gas transportation segment with minimum impact on the existing facilities.
Gas compressor stations along the pipelines have in place most of the times multiple gas turbines that are used as prime movers of the compressors. Known for being a reliable and flexible technology, gas turbines do not embody the ideal of efficiency, wasting a significant amount of energy in the form of sensible heat when operating in open-cycle.
The utilization of such waste heat to produce useful power, leveraging the features ORC technology offers, represents a clear opportunity to reduce the CO2 emissions of the whole system, either directly or indirectly.
The results indicate that a power plant based on ORC technology, thanks to its extremely low O&M requirements, automatic operation, high availability, and no water consumption, matches well the characteristics of the typical gas compressor station, which is unmanned and often located in remote areas.
