Vent & Flare Gas

Vapor Recovery

Oil field tank vapor and flare gas recovery is gaining attention as producers seek to capture valuable, rich vapors and meet increasingly strict environmental regulations.  Traditionally, vapors have been either vented, flared, or collected via maintenance-intensive central gathering systems with reciprocting compressors.  Emerson compressors offer a highly reliable alternative for vapor recovery systems.

Emerson is providing the natural gas industry with Vilter™ Single Screw and Copeland Scroll™ compressors and packaged systems.  These compressor based solutions deliver high pressure capability typically found only in reciprocating compressors, along with inherent benefits of oil flooded screw technology.  Emerson compressors deliver longer life, higher reliability and better part load efficiency than any screw compressor and have fewer moving parts than reciprocating compressors.
