Cutting edge technology transforms hydrocarbon recovery, selectivity and longevity.

ProSep, the oil, gas and water treatment specialist, has signed a collaboration agreement with GENERON, an industry-leading provider of comprehensive gas separation and compression solutions to develop and commercialize a state-of-the-art line of CO2 separation membrane products.
The collaboration, which will cover North America, will see ProSep engineer, manufacture, and distribute gas treatment packages, including GENERON’s innovative membrane technologies, for the oil and gas market.

GENERON’s CO2 membrane filters have superior selectivity, which dramatically increases hydrocarbon recovery and reduced permeate loss. Compared to competitive spiral-wound, flat-sheet membranes, the hollow-fiber membrane technology offers a greater surface area, which significantly reduces the required footprint and weight of the complete system. The technology has been piloted over the last 24 months, with promising results. In one field study at an offshore gas production facility, hydrocarbon recovery improved from 85 to 91 percent, equating to an additional ~ USD $50 million per year in residue gas sales.

John Sabey, CTO of ProSep, says of the collaboration: “Early on we identified a clear fit between our organizations. The strength of ProSep’s many years of experience, large installed base, and knowledge of the Oil & Gas market, process and mechanical design capabilities, fabrication expertise, combined with GENERON’s appetite for innovation, created the perfect partnership. The pilot results are extremely encouraging and we’re excited to take this product to market. The small weight and footprint of the technology, coupled with the increased selectivity and hydrocarbon recovery is something that hasn’t been done before. We’re offering operators the very latest technology for gas treatment.”
Tom Jeffers, CEO of Group, states “the collaboration agreement between GENERON (an Group Company) is a perfect match of the two companies’ capabilities. GENERON is an expert in the design and manufacture of highly specific membrane separation technologies. ProSep has extensive process experience in the natural gas processing industries. The cooperation of the two companies in the field of natural gas sweetening will enable ProSep and GENERON to offer the most efficient gas purification technologies to the market. The savings of 8-15% hydrocarbon processing losses will be a major benefit to our customer bases.”
