From Production to Supply

Drilling gas wells

In general, rotary-type equipment is used to drill gas wells. Wells are drilled into formations containing gas at depths from 500-2000 meters. The final step is the insertion of pre-perforated casing pipe (perforated with many holes of varying diameter for the withdrawal of gas and brine).

Production of gas

There is a range of methods for producing gas. KNG employs the gas lifting and submergible pump systems. Gas lifting is most commonly used. This method involves injecting pressurized gas from a compressor house into the gas well casing pipe to bring gas and brine to the surface. KNG employs its own variation on this method, called the outside injection pipe method.

Separating the gas from brine

The natural gas and brine that is pumped to the surface is separated by the separator in the compressor house. The gas is then piped to a booster station in each production area and, after measuring its volume, distributed via pipeline to users. For some customers that require gas of a higher heating value, the gas is passed to the heating value adjustment center where the heating value is raised. The brine on the other hand becomes the raw material for iodine production. Following the extraction of iodine, the waste brine is either returned to injection wells or discharged into the sea.

Gas supply

Natural gas produced by KNG is mainly used as city gas and for industrial purposes. In line with each of these applications, gas is supplied, via pipelines or by compressed gas storage cylinders, to a wide variety of users, including households, the public sector, and commercial and manufacturing facilities.
