Monetization Forum

In a special program produced with the support of the World Bank's Global Gas Flaring Reduction Partnership (GGFR), EFI's Gas Flare Monetization Forum brings together stakeholders responsible for technologies, projects, strategies and policies aimed at the recovery and monetization of associated and stranded natural gas, and the reduction of GHG emissions.


Presentations from EFI member companies and invited guests included:


Flare Reduction | Perspectives from a range of experts including the World Bank's Global Gas Flare Reduction Partnership (whose "No Routine Gas Flaring by 2030" initiative is being supported by numerous companies and countries) on the reduction and elimination of gas flaring in scenarios including stranded and associated gas, operations, and well completions. The session will cover various-scale technology routes to monetize stranded gas, flaring and venting reduction strategies, meeting flare-reduction targets, and current developments with practical applications deployed in the Bakken and elsewhere from companies including GE Oil & Gas, Ferus, Pioneer Energy, and Dow Oil, Gas & Mining.


Gas Monetization | An exploration and assessment of the pathways being explored by resource owners, operators, and technology providers to monetize natural gas, methane, ethane, and NGLs, and analysis of the dynamics related to the Bakken formation and other regions attracting significant amounts of investment and infrastructure.


Small-Scale & Modular GTL | A session focusing on the pilot projects, demonstrations, and commercial deployment of small-scale GTL and syngas technologies and the opportunities they present in North America and elsewhere for both offshore and distributed conversion of natural gas and other feedstocks into fuels (diesel, gasoline, DME) and chemicals. The session will feature updates from companies at the vanguard of demonstration and commercial activities in this area including Primus Green EnergyVelocys, INFRA Technology, Greyrock, Praxair, ME ResourceElement 1, Emerging Fuels Technology and Black & Veatch.


Gas-to-Products | Insight from stakeholders into the dynamics of some of the gas-to-products projects under consideration or planned in North America, and how the lowest NGL prices in more than a decade are affecting these.


Gas-to-Power and Heat | Briefing from Dresser-Rand and Ener-Core on the production of power and heat using almost any waste gas stream (including those with energy levels as low as 50 BTU/scf) with NOx, CO and VOC emissions at levels less than 1PPM with no post-exhaust treatment.


Research & Development | U.S. Department of Energy research exploring the process engineering, techno-economic and performance analyses associated with small-scale co-conversion of natural gas and biomass to transportation fuels, and a briefing on the CISTAR Engineering Research Center initiative aimed at sustainable development of the lighter, alkane rich hydrocarbon resources resulting from vastly increased unconventional gas recovery in North America.


Site Visit Program | Three site visits providing delegates with an opportunity to see firsthand the production and / or operation of flare recovery and monetization units used in Colorado and North Dakota, including gas processing, stripping, compression, and end-use consumption of the gas as fuel.
