Abstract:Combined master thesis of Chemical Engineering and Industrial Engineering and Management. Natural gas is growing in importance in the worlds energy mix. To secure our future gas production, unlocking difficult stranded gas fields is essential. This project is aimed at unlocking stranded, highly CO2 contaminated natural gas fields, containing more than 20 mol% CO2 through effective CO2 separation. Membrane technology can be seen as a promising, upcoming technology for effective CO2 removal from natural gas. To find out whether novel membrane processes are a techno-economic feasible alternative to unlock these fields, this benchmarking study was conducted. Parallel to this study, a benchmarking study was conducted to determine the feasibility of commercial available processes onshore and offshore. This study uses the same assumptions and approach to ensure full comparability. The main goal of the study is: to compare the techno-economical performance of different novel membrane processes for CO2 removal from contaminated natural gas, including pre-treatment, for different feed compositions with commercial CO2 removal technologies.
