Natural gas usually contains significant quantities of water vapour. Changes in temperature and pressure condense this vapour altering the physical state from gas to liquid to solid. This water must be removed to protect the system from corrosion and hydrate formation. Hydrates can block pipelines, valves and other process equipment.
Therefore, dehydration systems are required to remove water from natural gas. These systems are designed to meet stringent specifications and to allow high energy recovery.
WTE’s scope of work:
For use in the upstream segment of the pipeline, WTE can supply, install and commission dehydration units to energy and process industries around the country. These units remove the water from the natural gas.
