B-Stable: Condensate Stabilizers

B-Stable Overview

Condensate Stabilizers are used to safely stabilize condensates by reducing Reid Vapor Pressure and efficiently capture Natural Gas Liquids in well streams.

How it Works

After the condensate stream is preheated in the heat exchanger, it flows into the stabilizer tower where methane, ethane, propane, and butane exit through the vapor outlet and stabilized liquids are removed from the bottom of the tower and transferred to storage tanks. At this time, the condensate is stabilized for stock tank storage and transport. Stabilizers also increase the recoverable quantity of NGL’s.

B-Treat: H2S Continuous Treating Systems

B-Treat Overview

Bold’s Continuous Treating Systems (CTS) are used to remove H2S from high and low pressure natural gas streams to eliminate dangerous H2S, protect pipeline systems and allow producers to market previously stranded gas streams.  Bold’s CTS assets are modular skid mounted units which can be transported on one truck and installed on location in hours.  Bold also provides a FLEX, no flare solution to treat our customers gas during preventative maintenance by providing a FLEX vessel that enables gas to continue to be treated and sent to the sales line instead of flaring.

How it Works

Gas streams flow through the CTS contactor where Bold’s proprietary scavenger chemical, SGT-281, removes the H2S from the gas stream.  The gas then flows through an after scrubber where the spent chemical is dumped to the primary drain and the sweet gas is sent to the sales line.

The Bold Advantage

Capabilities

  • Utilizes Emerson’s Zedi Cloud Platform to remotely monitor operations providing real time data, alarms, and reporting
  • CTS units are NACE Compliant and built to ASME Code
  • Bold offers multiple size assets to meet customer production needs ranging from direct injection, 48”, 72” and 96” packages.  Our FLEX units are the no flaring solution for our customers and the environment
  • Reported in 2019, U.S. natural gas flared 1.48 cubic feet per.
  • Trailer mounted or skid mounted is the Bold standard for all of our assets. It is proven that by doing such, it reduces the trucking and installation cost and time for mobilizing and demobilizing

Environmental Impact

  • No Flaring with Bold solutions.  Reported in 2019, U.S. natural gas flared 1.48 cubic feet per. By doing this, Bold is able to reduce their emissions footprint to zero.

B-Dry: Glycol Dehydration Units

B-Dry Overview

Glycol dehydration is the process of removing water vapor from natural gas to minimize hydrates, reduce pipeline corrosion, and ensure the integrity of downstream or downhole equipment. Bold’s Modular Glycol Dehydration Units are packaged with inlet filtration, absorber, regeneration system with redundant pumps, charcoal filter, BTEX system, and telemetry all encompassed on a single lift skid.

How it Works

Saturated gas enters the glycol dehydration unit through the gas inlet of the filter separator to remove particulates that could contaminate the glycol system. The saturated gas flows from the filter separator to the inlet scrubber of the glycol absorber tower where it ascends through the tower’s packing or bubble cap trays as glycol descends in a counter current flow to aid in the absorption process. Dry gas exits the top of the tower and passes through the glycol/gas heat exchanger to the gas outlet. The rich glycol is passed through a regeneration cycle, where it is conditioned back to a lean state for recirculation.

The Bold Advantage

Capabilities

  • Utilizes Emerson’s Zedi Cloud Platform to remotely monitor operations providing real time data, alarms, and reporting
  • Dehydration units are NACE Compliant and built to ASME Code
  • Modular design is built with all components allowing units to be set by a single lift. Our design reduces safety exposure, time, and installation and freight costs because only one truck is needed for transportation

Environmental Capabilities

  • Environmentally friendly, with the ability to combust any non-condensable BTEX vapors in the reboiler versus any VOCs venting straight to atmosphere
  • Our single skidded modular design reduces freight emissions only utilizing one truck

B-Cool: Total Flow Coolers

B-Cool Overview

Total Flow Coolers are used to reduce gas and liquid temperatures to meet downstream process requirements. Bold’s Mobile Total Flow Coolers are forced draft trailer mounted packages that are powered by an electric motor. Power can be provided via electric co-op or natural gas power generation systems provided by Bold.

How it Works

The process flow enters the cooler through the inlet piping at trailer edge. It flows to the top of the cooler into the header box where it passes through the coils. The system monitors outlet temperature and adjusts the fan speed and louver position to maintain the desired set temperature. The flow then exits the cooler through the outlet piping also at trailer edge. Through this design, customers are able to safely cool their process flow, reduce associated costs, and maximize the efficiency of the overall production system.

The Bold Advantage

Capabilities

  • Utilizes Emerson’s Zedi Cloud Platform to remotely monitor operations providing real time data, alarms, and reporting
  • Our Cooler fleet is NACE compliant, built to ASME Code, and abides by NEC Class 1 Div 2 regulations
  • All components of the cooler package are trailer mounted, accessible to transport with a 2 5/16 gooseneck trailer hitch. The trailer mounted capability reduces installation cost, time and exposure to less than one day as well as reduced freight cost
  • Ability to maintain consistent desired outlet temperature
  • The coolers are engineered to be forced draft with exhaust out of the top of the unit. This allows 10’ spacing or less for multiple coolers, which reduces the customer’s overall footprint on location

Environmental Capabilities

  • Environmentally friendly, reducing NOX emissions by 95%, using one HRNG Hi-Power 165 generator to power up to 8 coolers in contrast to conventional natural gas engine driven coolers.

B-Chem: Non-Triazine H2S Chemical Scavenger and Water Vapor Scavenger

B-Chem –SGT-281

H2S scavenging is the process of removing H2S from natural gas streams in order to maintain pipeline integrity and safety.  Bold’s proprietary chemical, SGT-281, is a non-triazine based H2S scavenger.  Bold provides a full service solution using SGT-281 with Bold’s equipment, or SGT-281 can also be utilized with customer owned equipment.

How it Works

H2S rich gas enters a contact tower where it flows through a fluid bed of SGT-281. The bed is enriched with SGT-281 as needed. The treated gas stream exits the contact tower and flows into a spent solution scrubber where spent chemical is dropped out and the sweet gas exits the gas outlet. The non-hazardous spent SGT-281 is sent through a common or dedicated facility drain line.

B-Chem –Tri-ethylene Glycol

Tri-ethylene glycol is utilized to remove water vapor from natural gas streams.  Bold utilizes tri-ethylene glycol with its proprietary dehydration assets or our customer’s owned equipment to remove water vapor from natural gas streams for pipeline or gas lift dehydration applications.

How it Works

Tri-ethylene glycol is utilized in dehydration units within the absorber tower where it descends in counter currently to the gas flowing through the contactor absorbing the water vapor contained in the gas stream.

The Bold Advantage

Capabilities

    • Utilizes Emerson’s Zedi Cloud Platform to remotely monitor operations providing real time data, alarms, and reporting
    • More efficient operations by diagnosing alarms and the health of the units before going to location
    • Improved safety and reduced man hours on location
    • Improved efficiency over conventional chemicals
    • Reliable logistics and storage solutions

Environmental Impact
