Brown Field Revamping & Upgrading

Table of Contents



  • Brown Field Project
  • (30+ year-old facility)
  • Gas flowing out of spec into the sales pipeline
  • Upgrading of facilities required to handle forthcoming production of new unconventional developments in the block


  • Maximize the use of existing equipment from other facilities that were running on turndown.
  • Use new or rental equipment to fill in the gap
  • Minimize plant shutdowns when performing plant modifications
  • Uncertainty on gas composition

Project Development

  • Debottleneck study of an existing facility (with little to no design information)
  • Survey of existing equipment that could solve the bottlenecks
  • Project to disassemble and reassemble an existing plant
  • Commissioning and startup technical support on-site
  • Operator Training
  • Perform Test Run
  • Fine-tuning of the process


  • Gas ON SPEC 95% of the time. (After operator’s training)
  • Increased capacity from 70 MMSCFD to 105+ MMSCFD
  • Continuous process support to maximize liquids recovery as reservoir composition evolved
  • Take Away: Fast and low-cost solution allowed to take advantage of brown-field facilities to monetize gas and liquids production from new unconventional field developments
