Korra Energi has struck a deal with an unnamed US company to supply the equipment and technology system for the flare gas recovery project, Mohamed Medhat, Company’s Head of Energy Solutions, told Al-Mal.

The project is currently being implemented for Amreya Petroleum Refining Company (APRC) and in cooperation with the Egyptian Maintenance Company (San Masr). Medhat stated that ever since the company acquired the project, engineering designs with the San Masr and Amreya companies were completed by 80%.

The project’s production capacity is estimated at about 100,000 barrels (bbl) of butane and 3,500 bbl of condensates annually, in addition to 1.4 billion cubic feet per year (bcf/y) of hydrogen to be used as an alternative fuel for natural gas in furnaces. Medhat added that the groundwork on the project will start soon after the final designs and studies are completed.
