Condensate stabilization is one of the common process units in the gas processing world. The principle considerations affecting the performance of the plant when debottlenecking or designing new condensate stabilization units are the process configurations, stabilized condensate quality, energy saving, and equipment sizes. Sound process design can significantly reduce capital investments and operating costs.
The purpose of this paper is to review and illustrate the fundamentals of this process including process configurations, and key operating parameters, and show how they affect the plant performance, optimizing energy consumption, and economics.
