UNSW Australia Lending its Expertise to ONGC for Increasing Gas Yields from CBM

India: The University of New South Wales (UNSW, Australia) has partnered with Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) to increase the gas yields from coal seams and biogas plants. The gas produced would be tested for industrial application.

TechSci Research depicts that the increase in gas yield would surge the natural gas compressor demand. Gas transmission applications are typically powered by a reciprocating engine fueled by natural gas which would surge the demand of natural gas compressors. With growing technological advancements in the recovery of natural gas through unconventional means, which include shale gas, synthetic coal-to-gas, coalbed methane and tight gas, huge demand for natural gas compressors is anticipated to be registered across the globe over the next five years.

According to a released report of TechSci Research, “Global Natural Gas Compressors Market By Technology, By Application, By Region, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2011 - 2021”, the global natural gas compressors market is anticipated to cross USD 5.5 billion by 2021. On the basis of technology, natural gas compressors are segmented into two categories - positive displacement compressors and dynamic compressors. Among these categories, positive displacement compressors form the most preferred natural gas compressors category, predominantly due to their low cost and increasing use in gas gathering and processing. However, in the recent years, majority of the upstream and midstream companies are inclining towards dynamic compressors due their higher efficiency and low maintenance compared to positive displacement compressors.
