Title: The economics of natural gas liquids (Ngls) fractionation- A case study of the gas processing plant of the Ghana National Gas Company.
Authors: Kwaku Kuukyee, Frank
Issue Date: 5-Oct-2016
Abstract: This project work was done to ascertain the economic viability of separating NGLs into individual components as oppose to mix product such as LPG using the Ghana National Gas Company Processing Plant as a case study. The process flow diagram of the gas processing plant was reviewed to incorporate a depropanizer to recover propane and a butane splitter to recover isobutane and normal butane. The depropanizer and the butane splitter were sized using the procedure recommended by the Gas Producers and Suppliers Association and cost- benefit analysis conducted using Net Present Value approach the results of which showed that the project was viable. It was recommended that the material balance and the design parameters obtained should be confirmed by the use of a process modeling software and sensitivity analysis be conducted on the cash flow.
