"CAPEX Series Pt. 3 - Flare Optimization" Webinar

by Zubin Kumana & Nicholas Cristea

As production throughputs have increased over the years, many owners and operators have found that the flare disposal system capacity has been an afterthought.

This webinar covers the methods and procedures for getting the most out of a flare disposal system, including techniques to “sharpen the pencil” and reduce the loads to the flare by reviewing and removing overly conservative modeling assumptions, as well as options for equipment selection and instrumentation based solutions to eliminate or reduce the likelihood of a relief load in a scenario.
