Natural gas production requires the removal of small amounts of water that may be present
when the gas is produced from a well. This is done by a commonly used process called dehydration
(dehy). However, dehy units face challenges to avoid the release of greenhouse gases (GHG) and volatile
organic compounds (VOC) such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes (BTEX) into the
atmosphere. These measures make the process cost intensive and complex in nature.

Gaspro is a growing and innovative company tackling the challenges of environmentally harmful
emissions within the oil and gas industry. Gaspro has developed a BTEX Vapor Recovery Unit (VRU) to
address these challenges with a 100% closed loop system. Petroleum Technology Alliance Canada (PTAC)
and the National Research Council Canada – Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC-IRAP)
supported this technological development, which, if implemented broadly, will result in a vast amount
of BTEX emission reduction in the oil and gas industry.
