As natural gas demand increases through the energy transition, due to shifts away from coal-fired power generation and increased hydrogen utilization, production and processing of high CO2 natural gas sources, such as the Horn River Basin in Northern British Columbia will become more economic and important. The capture process should be energy efficient and provide the lowest GHG intensity possible to ensure the maximum decarbonization benefit. The propylene carbonate-based Fluor SolventSM process provides CO2 capture from natural gas sources at up to 97% lower GHG intensity when compared to the use of a formulated MDEA solvent which was used at the largest plant constructed to date in this field.
