Overall, the test was very successful. Maximum name plate capacity rate of 25m3/d was observed and the unit had great run times despite harsh winter conditions in Saskatchewan. Operations were impressed on how easy the unit was to operate, as compared to a combustor. There was virtually no pressure drop thru the unit which makes it very advantageous for applications to pressure sensitive oil wells. The oxidization process makes this unit safe to operate and allows significant savings on installation with no spacing requirements.
Commercial manufacturing of the unit could yield GHG Capital metrics in the $65/T-CO2e range. This unit has potential to be a commercial option to help Producers achieve their 75% methane reduction target for 2030.
