Article Abstract
A process modeling and simulation technique for recovery of Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) from associated gas was evaluated using ASPEN HYSYS 2006. Two different process routes were examined in order to ascertain which is the most efficient. The first process route consists of combinations of series of Separators for the recovery of the NGLs while the second process consists of series of combination of Distillation columns. In the first process route, 96.67% (39530 kg/h) of NGLs with purity of 76% was recovered, while 81% of NGLs with 95% purity was recovered in the second process route. This implies that process route II will be preferred though with low recovery values but high Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) Purity.
