The Challenge

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 Result

The following liquid waste improvement options were identified:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
