Clear Rush Co (CRC) products include its patented enclosed vapour combustors designed for low pressure, low volume vent gas from sources such as casing gas, storage tanks, and pneumatic instruments. It designs and manufactures industry leading ACL burner management systems as well as provides waste gas to power technology. CRC has been the pioneer in enclosed vapour combustor technology and works with producers and regulators to ensure that the units can be safely operated within reduced spacing scenarios.
Compact Compression specializes in under 100hp No Hassle Compression packages for a variety of applications such as Casing Gas, NG Well Boosting, Pigging, and Vapor Recovery.
Compact Compression’s (CCI) Hydraulic Casing Gas (HCG) compressor and Wet Gas Compressor (WGC) technologies are ideally suited for methane emissions reduction. These include casing gas compression; flaring and venting elimination at satellites and batteries by compressing gas from separator vessels; vapour recovery from tanks and low-pressure vessels. Compact Compression offers a fit-for-purpose compressor design in a few standard models that cover a wide range of pressures and flowrates. The HCG and WGC compressors offer a lower capital cost on a gas flowrate basis, low operating cost, and fixed maintenance costs.
Envision Manufacturing & Supply provides Vapour Recovery Compressors to recover vented methane from production tanks and oil well vents, Instrument Air Compressor packages to provide air for pneumatic devices, and Enclosed Vapour Combustors to efficiently burn methane that cannot be recovered or prevented from being vented.
Gaspro Compression builds, services and sells casing gas compressors that are used to capture the otherwise vented casing gas on oil wells. It also builds, sells and services Vapour Recovery Unit (VRU) packages used to capture the vapors off of storage tanks. Gaspro Compression has a 100% (zero emission) BTEX recovery package that has been recognized by Canadian regulators as an approved product for this application. Gaspro Compression has focused on small emission capture and has developed the most cost-effective product for each application, assisting its clients to stay compliant with ever-tightening restrictions on emissions in the oil and gas industry.
IJACK Technologies offers casing gas compressors and tri-phase (oil, water and gas) pumps to take the gas directly from the well to a processing facility. 100% of venting and flaring can be prevented as the gas is sent to a central gathering station for power use or processing. By eliminating the need for separators, compressors and other facility equipment, this reduces the leaking/emissions points in the process. In doing this, IJACK Technologies also relieves pressure on the well, casing and flowlines which also lowers the possibilities of higher-pressure leaks/emissions in the system.
LCO Technologies is a green technology innovator and distributor of PANAM Engineers high quality, low cost instrumentation Hand Valves, Manifolds, and Tube Fittings. In 2016, LCO established itself as one of Alberta’s leading oil and gas innovators with the invention of an orbital drive system for chemical injection or instrument air compression, called the Crossfire.
The Crossfire is an ultra-high efficiency drive system used as a configurable common platform to perform specific tasks that reduce or eliminate methane venting. One Crossfire, configured as a chemical injection pump with 4 heads, can replace 4 pneumatic pumps. Configured as an instrument air compressor, the Crossfire eliminates methane venting from instrumentation. Configured as a vapour recovery unit (VRU), the Crossfire can capture tank vent gas and re-compress it for destruction. Modbus communication protocol and data logging provides information on everything from operating parameters to data for carbon credits.
NEXT is well equipped to deliver quality, industry-leading solutions for your natural gas compression requirements, including design and fabrication of gas compressor packages for virtually any application utilizing reciprocating compressors, rotary screws and rotary vanes up to 5,000 HP.
NEXT Compression provides flare gas reduction and vapor recovery compression technology to help gas plants and refineries reduce and/or eliminate fugitive methane emissions. Waste gas is a by-product of the oil extraction process, which is often burned or flared-off into the atmosphere and is thus referred to as flare gas. Instead of flaring off the gas (burning the gas into the atmosphere), the flare gas is captured, treated and converted into usable electricity and is either used on site or sold into the grid. NEXT Vapor Recovery Units (VRU) provide similar technology.
Spartan Controls is a provider of industrial automation, valves, measurement and process control solutions and services for process industries.
Spartan Controls’ patented SlipStream system has been designed to capture vented methane emissions from varying point sources (instruments, compressor packing vents, tanks, etc.) in order to utilize it as a fuel in the fired equipment on site, most often a natural gas engine or a glycol reboiler burner. The LCO Crossfire can act as a chemical injection pump or air compressor which will eliminate vented methane from pneumatic instruments and pumps on site. The unit can also be used for vent collection like a Vapour Recovery Unit or for pressure assist. SlipStream and the LCO Crossfire address vented methane emissions from varying sources on site.
Valence supplies compressed natural gas, a cleaner burning fuel, to displace diesel in drilling and completions operations for producers. In addition, Valence mobile technology specializes in flare gas capture technology to eliminate the flaring of natural gas from wells that flare up to 4.0 mmcf/d. Once flare gas is captured, it converts it into useable by products such as compressed natural gas and natural gas liquids that can be marketed elsewhere. Valence’s products and services offer a solution that results in near 100% capture rates while also making it economic to the producer.
Vapure Engineering Ltd (VEL) provides support and services in the niche field of vapor and hydrocarbon recovery (VRU). Its main focus is tied to the engineering, design and fabrication of VRU packages and equipment. VEL’s VRU packages directly contribute in methane emission reductions by capturing them for re-use in boilers or other fired equipment (for consumption) or client product sales. VEL also provides aftermarket support and spare parts and manufactures high quality liquid ring compressor spare parts.
