Pharaonic Petroleum Completes Phase 2 of Flare Gas Recovery Project

Pharaonic Petroleum Company (PhPC) succeeded in implementing the second phase of engineering and technical modifications to the flare system and gas compressor.

The modifications can reduce carbon emissions rates, increase production capacity, and recover gases that include gases from the condensate stabilization unit which are rich in gas derivatives.

This was done at a cost of about $200,000 to benefit from 360 million cubic feet of gas annually, equivalent to $2.2 million annually, that was burned in the flare and resulted in carbon emissions.

It should be noted that in the first phase, a reciprocating gas compressor was installed, which aimed to recover one billion cubic feet of gas annually. Thus, the value of the total recovered gases from the two phases is $6.7 million annually.

Hossam Zaki, PhPC’s Chairman, explained that this comes as a result of the directives and policies of the Ministry of Petroleum and Mineral Resources and the keenness to implement the recommendations of COP27.

Zaki added that this also comes in line with the commitment of the company, which has the ISO 50001 energy efficiency and rationalization certificate.
