ProSep, Generon to collaborate on new CO2 separation technology

Offshore staff

HOUSTON ProSep has signed a collaboration agreement with Generon IGS to develop and commercialize a state-of-the-art line of CO2 separation membrane products.

The collaboration will see ProSep engineer, manufacture, and distribute gas treatment packages, including Generon’s innovative membrane technologies, for the upstream oil and gas industry.

The technology has been piloted over the last 24 months, with promising results, said ProSep. In one field study at an offshore gas production facility, hydrocarbon recovery improved from 85% to 91%, equating to an additional $50 million per year in residue gas sales.

“The pilot results are extremely encouraging and we’re excited to take this product to market and offer operators the very latest technology for gas treatment,” said John Sabey, chief technical officer of ProSep.

“The small weight and footprint of the technology, coupled with the increased selectivity and hydrocarbon recovery, is something that hasn’t been done before.”
