Oil And Gas Waste Heat Recovery Market Scenario


oil and gas waste heat recovery market is estimated to witness 7.5% CAGR during the forecast period.


Waste heat recovery systems are amongst the utmost cost-effective way to increase the overall efficiency of the oil & gas exploration and production plant, while diminishing the fuel demand. Large quantities of fuel such as coal, oil and gas, which are used to produce power through conventional power plants are wasted due to the confines of the power conversion processes. The exhaust gas emitted from various processes of the oil & gas plant, exhibits a large amount of the energy, this energy produced is called as waste heat. The industrial process often produces enough waste energy to generate electricity. Waste Heat Recovery Units (WHRUs) or heat to power units can recover the waste heat and convert it into electricity by using Organic Ranking Cycle (ORC). Any major exhaust gas stream with temperatures above 3000F has a vital potential for significant waste heat recovery feasibility. Waste heat temperatures can vary significantly, in relevance to permitting heat transfer and recovery; it is essential that the waste heat source temperature is higher as compared to the heat sink temperature.
