Gas Processing Technologies

Fractionation

Once natural gas liquids (NGLs) have been separated from a natural gas stream, they are further separated into their component parts, or fractions, using a distillation process known as fractionation. 

Lummus Technology has designed NGL fractionation plants with capacities ranging from 10,000 to 74,000 barrels per day in locations around the world and products include ethane, propane, iso-butane, normal butane and pentanes. We have designed both stand-alone fractionation systems, as well as systems integrated with gas processing facilities.
