Integrated Sustainability investigated opportunities to improve the management of waste at a gas processing facility in British Columbia in order to achieve operational cost savings. The team was also tasked with developing Class 5 estimates regarding CAPEX investments required to achieve OPEX savings.
The following liquid waste improvement options were identified:
- Install equipment to remove two key constituents from liquid waste. This option was predicted to provide operational cost savings of more than $1 million annually, with payback on capital investment within less than one year.
- Install larger control valve on the gas inlet line to the facility. This option was predicted to provide operational cost savings of approximately $30k annually, with payback on capital investment within approximately one year.
