Honeywell's UOP technology operates with very high on-stream factors for difficult-to-treat gas streams in remote locations. Systems can be used onshore or offshore, at the wellhead or at gathering facilities. To date, more than130 of Honeywell's UOP membrane systems have been installed worldwide.
This year, Honeywell's UOP acquired a 70 percent stake in Thomas Russell Co., a leading provider of technology and equipment for natural gas processing and treating. With the acquisition, Honeywell's UOP expands its offering of key technologies and products that allow shale and conventional natural gas producers to remove contaminants from natural gas and recover high-value natural gas liquids used for petrochemicals and fuel.
In 2011, Honeywell's UOP expanded its portfolio of natural gas treatment technologies through an exclusive marketing alliance with the Netherlands-based Twister B.V. The company now offers the Twister supersonic gas separation technology, which is used to remove water and heavy hydrocarbons present in natural gas when it comes out of the ground.
