Condensate Stabilizers

Condensate Stabilizers reduce the vapor pressure of produced oil/condensate for tank storage and transport and increase the recoverable quantity of Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs). The Condensate Stabilizer Unit is designed to minimize startup time, safely stabilize condensates by reducing Reid Vapor Pressure, (RVP) and efficiently capture Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) in wellstream. Condensate entering the stabilizer unit is pre heated in the inlet exchanger and fed to the stabilizer tower where the light components rise in the tower and exit at the vapor overhead outlet. Heavier liquids descend and pass through indirect heater becoming additional vapor to flash and rise to exit the tower. Stabilized liquids collected at the bottom are be cooled in the inlet heat exchanger before being sent to storage tanks. The gas is cooled and liquids separated before routing to the compressor for delivery. NGLs exit the separator and flow to a blowcase where they are pressurized for storage or the pipeline.
