We help our clients meet regulatory requirements, keeping oil flowing and improving the bottom line. The products produced by the Flarecatcher and Vaporcatcher produce additional revenue for the producer while also decreasing their costs of operation.
Flarecatcher - Associated Gas Capture & Monetization Services
Flarecatcher systems process associated gas streams of a wide range of energy content. The high-quality, de-ethanized NGL produced by the Flarecatcher is a valuable commodity and we can assist in marketing this product if desired. The pipeline quality lean dry gas produced by the Flarecatcher has high methane number and can power on-site loads, significantly reducing operating costs by reducing reliance on imported diesel fuel or propane. For sites with limited on-site power needs, Pioneer Energy can also provide a complete CNG or LNG solution, including marketing of the product, to fully monetize the gas and eliminate the flare.
Vaporcatcher - Tank Battery Vapor Capture & Monetization Services
Vaporcatcher systems capture and process tank battery vapors, providing extremely high NGL yield and superior economics. Our Vaporcatcher systems are offered at NO COST to the producer, with the cost of the unit covered by a percentage of the proceeds from NGL sales. The economics of deploying a Vaporcatcher are far superior to those for deploying a Vapor Recovery Unit (VRU) and injecting into a gathering system. If deployed to a site where tank vapors are currently being flared, the Vaporcatcher cuts total emissions by a factor of 4 and C4+ smoky combustion emissions by more than a factor of 12.
