The JT skid provides hydrocarbon dew point control and increased recovery of natural gas liquids (NGL). The JT Plant consists of a gas-to-gas heat exchanger with hot gas bypass, liquid-to-gas heat exchanger, JT valve, cold separator, methanol injection system and control system mounted on a single skid.
The Joule-Thomson (JT) effect is a thermodynamic cooling process that occurs when a fluid expands from high pressure to low pressure (through a valve in this case). This cooling effect allows for the recovery of valuable Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs) and reduces the water and hydrocarbon dew point of the production stream to pipeline specifications.
This self-contained, skid-mounted system can be quickly installed and started up, making it ideal for short-term, space-constrained operating environments.
