Wärtsilä has introduced a unique product, GasReformer, which converts associated gas produced during oil production to a quality that can be used as fuel in Wärtsilä’s range of gas-fuelled engines at full performance levels. Associated gas is normally considered to be waste, and is consequently flared into the atmosphere. The World Bank estimates that, globally, flaring or venting the gas causes some 400 million tons of carbon dioxide in annual emissions. By turning otherwise waste gas into fuel, the system significantly lowers operating costs while notably enhancing environmental sustainability.
