The multi-million dollar project will enable Orpic to recover and process waste hydrocarbon gases into valuable fuel gas for use in the plant’s refining operations, added the Oman Daily Observer report.

The use of flare gas recovery system in the facility will provide the dual benefits of energy conservation and emissions abatement by recovering, instead of flaring, process vent gases, said the company.

According to Orpic, the successful bidder will be awarded a contract for the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning (EPCC) of a state-of-the-art flare gas recovery unit, according to Tradearabia news report.

Basic engineering for the plant has already been undertaken by John Zink, a US based firm specialising in the design and manufacture of emissions control and clean-air combustion systems.

Orpic has set September 5 as the deadline for the submission of commercial and technical bids for the contract, added the report.
