- ... Subsea processing is getting increased interest in the oil and gas sector as it can provide broader exploration of the oil and gas with a lower environmental footprint. Dehydration of natural gas with the use of triethylene glycol (TEG) is one of the main processing step for natural gas treatment to avoid transportation problems caused by the presence of water. Distillation is a commonly used tech ...

- ... A mathematical model of a membrane contactor using triethylene glycol (TEG) for dehydration of natural gas at subsea operation conditions has been developed. The goal for the membrane contactor is to dehydrate the natural gas to transport pipeline specifications, which are −19 °C at 69 barg. The membrane contactor model is based on a hollow fiber configuration with the gas in the shell side and th ...
