Title
Project for Recovery and Use of Casinghead Gas from the La Cira Field
Project Identifier
1901-3121
Project Description
The La Cira Infantas field is located 22 kilometers from Barrancabermeja in the village El Centro, Santander. It has more than 2,800 wells, of which about 1,400 are oil producing. The casinghead gas from the field La Cira Infantas historically was not captured; on the contrary, it was vented to regulate the pressure of the wells. The project, which is implemented since 2010, consists mainly in establishing the casinghead gas network and connecting the wells to this network, thus directly avoiding the emission of methane contained in the associated gas into the atmosphere. In addition, the project avoids emissions from natural gas consumption by allocating the recovered gas to other energy uses, thus replacing the use of natural gas with recovered casinghead gas.
