Model predicts equilibrium water content of high-pressure acid gases

07/11/2005
A new simple, theoretically based model predicts equilibrium water content of pure acid-gas components and acid-gas mixtures.The model is applicable at temperatures of 32-212° F. and pressures of 14.7-2,000 psia for pure acid-gas components and acid-gas mixtures that contain up to 5 mole % hydrocarbons.The new model provides a quantitative estimate of changes in the equilibrium water content of acid-gas mixtures due to changes in system pressure, temperature, or composition. Compared with an available experimental data set (159 points), the new model results in an absolute average error of 14% vs. 15% for AQUAlibrium, a commercial software package.Compressed acid-gas reinjection into ...
