Natural Gas Processing

About this Course

Natural gas and renewable energy (especially solar and wind energy), are currently the leading energy sources in the United States, and some western nations.

The standards for pipeline quality natural gas in Nigeria are defined by the Department of Petroleum Resources-adapted API (American Petroleum Institute) standards.

Across the Niger Delta, there are many gas processing plants, i.e. gas compression stations and at least one LNG plant at Bonny, Rivers State, Nigeria.

Natural-gas processing is a complex industrial process designed to clean raw natural gas by separating impurities and various non-methane hydrocarbons and fluids to produce what is known as pipeline quality dry natural gas.
