CO2 Compression, Dehydration, Transportation, and Injection

Once captured, CO2 requires compression and transportation for final utilization or sequestration. With ProMax, you can simulate the complex phase equilibria between CO2 and H2O mixtures at near critical and supercritical conditions. This is crucial for evaluating captured CO2 compression, dehydration, transport, and downhole injection. ProMax accurately predicts:

  • Water content
  • Density
  • Glycol dehydration thermodynamics
  • Solids formation temperatures (Hydrates, Water Ice, and Dry Ice)
  • Pipelines
