The MEG Regeneration and Reclaiming Technology developed by CCR Technologies Ltd. is a pioneer technology with the first commercial operation in the world of a MEG reclaiming unit being started-up in 1999 for Shell Mensa Offshore Project in the Gulf of Mexico. As of today, twelve MEG Regeneration and Reclaiming units have been licensed with this technology including the largest unit in the world for Wasit Gas Plant project in Saudi Arabia developed by Saudi Aramco (Rich MEG capacity = 4 x 66 m³/h).

Injection of large volumes of Monoethylene Glycol (MEG) at the wellhead is an effective way to prevent hydrate formation and assure gas flow. MEG returns to shore in a mix of gas, hydrocarbons, water, salts and other solids; replacement is very costly and the installation of MEG Regeneration and Reclaiming system provides the following benefits: reduction in purchased volume of new glycols, protection against hydrate formation and pipeline freeze-up, lower corrosion of subsea and onshore flowlines, reduced fouling and scaling, smaller circulating volumes in glycol loop.
