Ventech Engineers nears completion on 100,000 barrels per day crude stabilizer unit

Monday, Feb 04, 2013

Ventech Engineers LLC is nearing completion on the Khurmala Crude Stabilizer Unit, a project being engineered and fabricated for the KAR Group, an Iraqi oil and gas company.  The stabilizer will serve KAR’s central crude processing station (CPS) at the Khurmala oilfield, located approximately 50 kilometers from its Kalak Refinery in the Kurdistan Region of northern Iraq.

The project marks the continuation of Ventech’s established working relationship with the KAR Group, and will meet an important safety and process need.  According to Scot Stanley, Ventech project manager, “The stabilizer removes light gas and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) from the crude.  This improves refinery operations, reduces potential H2S exposure risk to the CPS and refinery personnel, and eliminates sulfur dioxide (SO2) production when refinery off-gas is used to fire the heaters and boilers.  Our project will help KAR operate with an enhanced level of safety and achieve longer service life from their refinery equipment.”

The crude stabilization unit is designed to process up to 100,000 BPD of crude, and is being fabricated into eight (8) modular units.  The project started in 2012 and the modules are scheduled to ship from Ventech’s Pasadena, Texas fabrication facility during March, 2013.

KAR Group is a full-spectrum integrated oil company and energy producer working throughout Iraq providing expertise in engineering and construction to the oil industry.

Ventech Engineers LLC is the global leader in the design and construction of new modular refineries, gas-processing systems, and existing-plant relocations.
