Abstract
tA process for methanol production from 100 MM scfd of stranded gas and CO2is proposed and simulated using acommercial process simulator, PRO/II v.9.1, for a FPSO (floating production, storage, off-loading) system. The processconsists of Steam-CO2Reforming (SCR), methanol synthesis, a Reverse Water-Gas Shift (RWGS) reaction and ancillar-ies with recycle streams to SCR and RWGS. All reactors were simulated using the Gibbs reactor model. Also, the PlugFlow Reactor (PFR) model with reaction rate equations was used for the methanol reactor and the result was com-pared to the Gibbs reactor model. To maximize the use of the carbon source in stranded gas and CO2while avoidingan undesirable increase in process size, the optimum recycle ratios were calculated with a satisfying constraint, asteam-to-carbon ratio ≥ 1 in the SCR. In the proposed Methanol-FPSO process the RWGS reactor can maximize CO2utilization and case studies were performed to analyze the influence of RWGS.
