NGL Stabilization

Kinder Morgan Treating designs and builds NGL stabilizers. Occasionally, NGL product produced from a natural gas stream is too volatile for truck or rail transport. Sending these products to an NGL storage tank will result in significant flash gas, ultimately reducing the volume of NGL product that is delivered to sales.

NGL StabilizerIn order to reduce the volatility and promote liquid recovery, NGL’s may be passed through an NGL stabilizer that effectively manages the flash of the product. This allows the volatile light ends to make their way up the stabilizer to vent, recompress into the sales line or recompress into the front of the compressor or mechanical refrigeration unit (MRU). Meanwhile, heavy hydrocarbons in the stable product are sent to the NGL storage tank. NGL stabilizers can also be used for ethane rejection and to manage the amount of CO2 in a liquid product to ensure that the buyer’s specifications are met.

Some key features of Kinder Morgan's NGL stabilizers include:

  • 800 – 100,000 gallon per day capacity
  • Multiple column sizes available
  • Electric, TEG, or Heat Mediums available
  • Skid mounted for easy installation
