To comply with safety regulations and government emissions standards, flare stacks need to be monitored. Fluenta has more than 30 years’ expertise in the accurate measurement of flare gas. Using ultrasound technology combined with bespoke measurement techniques, Fluenta’s products are recognized globally for their accuracy and reliability.
The oil and gas industry has to deal with some of the most dangerous and toxic materials in often challenging and hostile environments. Safety and accuracy are not only essential prerequisites to successful projects, these values are ingrained into the DNA of the oil and gas industry.
Oil and gas platforms need to release gases safely. This may be to reduce sudden increases in pressure, or to ensure safe plant start-ups or shut-downs.
Releasing potentially toxic gases into the air is more risky and less environmentally safe than burning gas through a flare stack. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the United States has estimated that when gas is flared rather than vented, the emissions of volatile organic chemicals and hazardous air pollutants could be reduced by around a factor of 4.
Fluenta’s products have been deployed thousands of times across the globe including with trusted oil and gas brands such as BP, Exxon, Shell, Equinor, and Total.
Flare gas measurement is one of the most difficult applications that we face in today’s total emission accountability climate. Changing gas composition, extreme velocity, flow and temperature ranges make it hard to maintain meter accuracy. There are a number of lower cost options that can provide a number for reporting but Fluenta has proven to be the industry leader in range of process conditions and repeatability.
