New method improves back-allocation for gas, condensate at processing plants

This article reports on development of a methodology for the back-allocation of natural gas and condensate at natural gas processing facilities. This methodology is based on energy and weight balance equations that use gas and condensate compositions in the inlet and outlet streams.A case study in Khalda Petroleum Co. confirms the applicability of this work. The new allocation system has proven reliable and is a comprehensive solution to meet the requirements of Khalda back-allocation process. The system provides capabilities to compute production on points where accurate measurements are not physically possible or economically practicable.With natural gas production increasingly importan...
