WHY IS GAS FLARED?
When petroleum crude oil is extracted and produced from onshore or offshore oil wells, raw natural gas associated with the oil is produced to the surface as well. Especially in areas of the world lacking pipelines and other gas transportation infrastructure, vast amounts of such associated gas are commonly flared as waste or unusable gas. The flaring of associated gas may occur at the top of a vertical flare stack – as in the picture – or it may occur in a ground-level flare in an earthen pit.
VERDIS ELIMINATES GAS FLARING, REDUCING YOUR CARBON FOOTPRINT TO ZERO
Using Verdis Gas-to-Diesel conversion units is the smart, profitable alternative to flaring and venting associated gas. It will allow companies to completely stop their gas-flaring. This will reduce carbon footprints, provide a source of high-value ultra-clean fuel, and generate significant revenue streams while optimizing the supply chains.
ADDITIONAL ADDED VALUE
In addition to the elimination of gas flaring and the net economic benefits of the Verdis GTD conversion units, other ancillary benefits include:
- As a result of the conversion of gas to diesel, the catalytic reaction produces an excess of pure water and electricity. The units can be configured to capture this electricity so that it can be sold to the grid for an additional profit or consumed on-site
- Compliance with various global and national treaties and laws aimed at reducing global warming
- Public relations benefits of significantly reducing flaring and carbon emissions
- Tax benefits (depending on the country) or carbon-trading credits
