New engineer here almost a year since graduation. I'm working in the upstream oil and gas sector designing production facilities.


I am trying to procure a fuel gas skid to process gas from the facility and repurpose it for tank blanketing and a heater treater.


The company supplying the fuel gas skid has asked how dry I want the gas and also proposed a descant dryer to dry the gas. Currently simulation says the gas contains about 500 lbm of water per MMSCF.


I know Hydrate formation is an issue I need to consider we are dropping pressure from 75 to 25 PSIG inlet to outlet of the fuel gas skid. But aside from that, would wet gas affect either tank blanketing or the heater treater burner operations?


If so, how dry would I need the gas to be?


Is gas drying necessary for production facility fuel gas?


Any help on this or direction to where I could find information on this would be appreciated.
