New Technology From Honeywell's UOP Successfully Improves Natural Gas Processing Capacity On U.S. Gulf Coast

Separex membranes eliminate the need for solvents, making the technology often desirable in remote locations where logistics make supply transportation to the site difficult. Because Separex membrane elements are inert solids, these membranes offer a spill-free, ecosystem-friendly solution. Decades of operation in natural gas service have demonstrated that Separex membranes are the most robust for natural gas service and can achieve the longest membrane life in the industry. To date, more than 130 Separex units have been installed worldwide. Honeywell's UOP recently rebranded its existing Separex cellulose acetate (CA) membrane elements under the new name Separex Flux. This product offers the same specifications and performance as the company's current CA elements.

Honeywell's UOP Gas Processing and Hydrogen business offers technology, equipment and materials to treat and process natural gas, as well as to purify hydrogen used in refineries. Its gas technologies extract contaminants including water, mercury, sulfur and carbon dioxide from raw natural gas. Honeywell's UOP also offers technologies to recover valuable natural gas liquids (NGLs). The business has supplied technology to more than 3,600 individual process units for gas processing in a broad range of applications throughout the world, including Floating, Processing, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessels.

Honeywell's UOP has increased its offerings in natural gas in recent years. In 2012, the company purchased a majority stake in Thomas Russell Co., which offers key technologies and modularized packaged plants, enabling shale and conventional natural gas producers to remove contaminants from natural gas and recover high-value NGLs used for petrochemicals and fuels. Thomas Russell products are now part of the UOP Russell product line. Honeywell's UOP also has marketing alliances with Twister B.V., and Ortloff Engineers, Ltd. for natural gas separation technology for recovering NGLs.

Honeywell's UOP Gas Processing and Hydrogen business also has expanded its global footprint, opening a gas processing design center in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in 2008. In 2012, it opened a manufacturing and operations center to produce Separex membrane elements in Penang, Malaysia, to better serve growing natural gas markets in Southeast Asia and around the world.

Honeywell's UOP has been doing business with Kinder Morgan since 1997.

UOP LLC, headquartered in Des Plaines, Illinois, USA, is a leading international supplier and licensor of process technology, catalysts, adsorbents, process plants, and consulting services to the petroleum refining, petrochemical, and gas processing industries.
