Oil & Gas Industry

Applications Overview

LPP Combustion - Oilfield Power Systems

Flared gases and NGLs can be re-purposed as fuel for flex-fuel, low-emissions LPP Combustion Power Systems, lowering production costs, reducing logistical burdens, and addressing Gas Capture Plan and other compliance issues with flaring and emissions. 


The ‘Lean, Pre-mixed, Pre-vaporized’ (LPP) equipment enables clean combustion of liquid fuels in gas turbines and industrial boilers and burners.   In addition to flare-gas NGLs, the LPP Combustion Oilfield Power System also operates on a variety of traditional liquid fuels and ethane/methane. 


LPP Combustion Benefits:

  1. Flex-fuel capability

  2. Reduced maintenance costs

  3. Reduced emissions

  4. Dynamic interchanging and blending of fuels

  5. Reduced fuel costs

  6. Reduced operating costs

  7. Gas pipeline infrastructure not required

  8. Reduced fuel-supply risk

  9. Waste heat recovery options for heating and cooling / industrial process heat

  10. Avoids ‘methane slip’ emissions


Power requirements can be met with LPP Combustion flex-fuel power systems configured for various outputs:  30 kW, 65 kW, 200 kW, 400 kW, 500 kW, 600 kW, 1 MW, 3.4 MW, or 5.4 MW.  Mobile trailer-mounted LPP Combustion Power Systems are available in addition to fixed-location deployments.  For power stations LPP Combustion equipment is available for 10 MW, 23 MW, or 31 MW power output generation systems as well as utility-scale units.   Most LPP Combustion power systems can produce heat, hot water, or steam when configured for combined heat and power (CHP) to leverage the turbine exhaust heat.   


The LPP Combustion technology has been extensively tested and peer-reviewed in its ability to vaporize a wide variety of liquid fuels into a substitute natural gas (LPP Gas).  Copies of the 2014 ASME ("Low Emissions Microgrid Power Fueled by Bakken Flare Gas") or other technical papers are available upon request.
