Problem 1. Recovery of Marcellus Shale Gas using membrane separators
Your team is to develop process technology to upgrade a specific Marcellus shale gas stream using membrane separators. Your process will receive a gas stream as provided at the well conditions and modify it prior to delivery to a conventional NG recovery process. You will provide a design report covering the technology, economics, and the additional factors of demand/market, operations/use, intellectual property, regulatory issues, and commercialization issues. Your report should convince the reader whether to invest, or not invest, in this technology.
