The Indonesian firm chose Xebec’s PSA process aiming to upgrade lower quality natural gas used as a feed stock in the production of carbon disulphide. As they inform, it is a compact and cost effective solution to remove carbon dioxide from sub-quality natural gas to meet the stringent specifications required by industrial consumers of this energy.
According to Xebec’s press release, this technology delivers higher efficiency than conventional PSA systems and should assist the customer to increase the productivity and reduce the maintenance downtime of their CS2 synthesis process. “The M-3200 system can upgrade up to 10 million cubic feet of feed gas per day,” the report details.
The vice president for Xebec Asia/Pacific Andrew Hall informed that this is the company’s first sale of an M-3200 PSA for natural gas upgrading in South East Asia, after the installations at both offshore and on-shore gas processing facilities in California.
The executive highlighted the need to strengthen this first project in Indonesia to expand the PSA sales in the gas process market across South East Asia. Commissioning and start-up of the Xebec’s system are expected to take place in the first quarter of 2011.
