  • Let’s take as example a typical station equipped with n° 4 compressors for a total installed power of 20 MW processing approximately 150,000 Nm3/h of natural gas ( 88 % CH4)
  • Leakage from the (dry gas) seals can easily approximate 80 Nm3/h. This equates to an annual release of 600.000 Nm3 or 408 tons of methane
  • No credits for Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) are earned for emission reduction projects in any industrialised nation
  • BUT, the recycled CH4 represent ~ € 140.000 in verifiable annual savings
  • Therefore, the financial payback period is under 3 years
