Macrotek Awarded Major Flue Gas Desulphurization Contract for Heavy Oil Recovery Project in Venezuela
November 25, 2014
Macrotek signed a multi-million dollar contract for the design and supply of a compact flue gas desulphurization (FGD) system for the Venezuelan national oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela S.A. (PDVSA).
The FGD system will clean up gases from a thermal oxidizer containing a significant concentration of SO2. Hot gases from the oxidizer will be quenched and conditioned in a counter-current quench vessel. A packed column will remove the SO2 and neutralize it to a stable sodium salt.
Water conservation is a key consideration for this project as water availability is limited. A sub-cooling section is incorporated in the design to cool the hot saturated gas and condense the water. The system will be designed with sufficient flexibility to adjust the water balance as desired by the end user and to suit site conditions.
Engineering is currently in progress at Macrotek with project completion expected in the second quarter of 2015.
