We are a remote location, a new gas field, and have a drain drum, collecting gas condensate with TEG. The drum is in an open pit. The designers arranged pipework up to grade with a connection for a vacuum truck. But I have a concern that if the condensate is near to equilibrium, use of a vacuum truck would just vaporize it. I wonder whether slightly pressurizing the drum may be a better way for removal (design P 3.6 Kg/cm2 g). Does anyone have any thoughts on this please?
