At the Institute of problems of chemical physics have developed a new most effective technology for processing of associated petroleum gas. It is released during production and driving oil.
Deputy Director of the Institute of petrochemical synthesis named. Topchiev of RAS Anton Maksimov "We are in the workshop of petrochemical synthesis, Russian Academy of Sciences. At the workshop, practiced a variety of technologies, including technologies of processing of associated petroleum gas".
The latest developments of scientists of the Institute of petrochemical synthesis, has turned into a pilot installation. Two cylinders connected by a tube, make the gas in the gasoline, which then can be poured into the tank, but the capacity is not very large - only 3 grams per hour. Utilization of associated gas - a headache for all companies extracting hydrocarbons. Gas is produced during oil production. And just release it into the atmosphere is not enough only a few years, if the world was a disaster, so it just burned.
"According to various estimates, we burn from 15-20 to 50 billion cubic meters a year." Associated gas and is now being transformed into electricity and used to make plastics, the polymers, raw materials for pharmaceuticals and perfumes. But the percentage of utilization is not very large, up to 80%. Technology the Russian scientists allows to process 100% of the emissions.
Is preparing to launch the first and only industrial plant for processing of associated petroleum gas. It is collected in Voronezh. To implement the technology, scientists are ready quickly. And then the gas that today goes into the pipe and burns turn into real money. The country annually will be able to receive up to 100 billion rubles.
