New Designed Gas Flare Steam Turbine Plant for Power Generation

Summary of your idea

This project is all about bringing sanity to our environment, by reducing the negative effect of pollution to the Ozone Layer, and creating a conducive environment for humankind by increasing the economic growth/value of the nation. The total process of achieving this project is of a low cost to be compared with the effect/disadvantages it brings to humanity and his environment. In operation, we are converting the Oil and Gas Flare which has heat energy, gaining 92% of the energy into steam to propel a steam turbine which power ranges from 1horsepower up to 1.5GW(Approximately 2,000,000Hp). Steam plant generates high pressure steam by transferring the heat of Combustion from the heat transfer sections. The possibility of achieving steam energy is by conserving the loss heat energy from the gas flare into an enclosed chamber having less heat loss of 8%. A boiler plant is set to run a steam turbine as in other cases, but in this process, we are designing a new brand system to generate the steam energy called Steam Plant to run the turbine generator. Volume of one unit mass of steam is thousand times that of water, when water is converted to steam in a closed vessel which the walls of the entire system is incorporated with both Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) and Super Wool Fibre Mastics (SFM), the pressure will increase. This new steam plant uses this principle to produce high pressure steam. Conversion of water into steam evolves in three stages; o Heating the water from cold condition to boiling point or saturation temperature sensible heat addition. o Water boils at saturation temperature to produce steam - Latent heat. Addition. o Heating steam from saturation temperature to higher temperature called Superheating to increase the power plant output and o Efficiency.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

The expected impact of this project idea is of three ways: 1. Protection of our Ozone Layer and the Health of mankind: The failure in protecting of our ozone layer has now (Gas flaring) leads to significant increases of carbon emissions in to the atmosphere and its combustion releases high amounts of soot and carbon monoxide. These communities are at high risk for asthma, blood disorders, cancer and other chronic respiratory illnesses. This project if achieved will resolve this poor situation on human, by creating more positive impact on both our health and environment. Remember we need better and healthier man power for sustainable development. 2. Preservation of our Natural Resources: There is no efficiency for total sustainable development without proper preservation our natural resources. Is from our natural resources we get most of our raw materials; how effective and solid in quality do we then expect these raw materials to be when there is no solution in reducing the effect of pollution in our environment. 3. Enhancing of the productivity of our industries and live of the individuals for sustainable development: For our industries to be more effective in production, electricity is very important and necessary, because is the easiest step for proper sustainable development. This project if achieved; its energy can as well serves as a contribution to our national grid for greater development, give to our industries the required electricity energy in facilitating whatever process it ought to take to achieve a better economic output. For any potential investor ready to invest in industries, he must think of facilitating his industry with electrification, and he can achieve this by building his own steam generating power plant closer to any oil & gas flow station, with less cost of running his business effectively without paying electricity bills.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

In April 2012, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) passed rules to address air emissions from oil and gas exploration, production, processing and transportation. Beginning in January 2015, U.S. EPA will require that well operators use green completions1 to control air emissions. With the vision ahead for better environment/health today: this is the best time for bringing this project idea into reality; by investing into it, it will soon be a hotcake in the business market. Financing of this project idea is the success for profit/income gain. In the business world, this is an opportunity for investors to invest into the power sector, for example, Africa, Nigeria, were investing into the power sector seems to be the biggest ongoing investment project; remember Nigeria has the biggest economic in Africa. Investing into Nigerians power sector is in three stages; 1. As a body generating the power. 2. As the distributor. 3. The generator and the distributor. Your money earns money: This type of investment is a long lasting investment, were the profit flow is a continuous one, with less cost on installation, maintenance, and even in the distribution process. The total cost for investing into this project is rated from 312.500$ to 370.000$, depending on their output/ capacity. This project seems to be capital intense, but the profit gain (output profit) is greater than the initial amount invested (input). This project idea is for everyone that is aiming for a better investment opportunity worldwide, for e.g. Oil & Gas Industries, Government, Environmental Protection Agency, NGOs, even to all kind of investors. With proper collaboration with firms like the oil & Gas industries, no fund will be required for gaining the expelled gas for running the steam plant, since the gas is already a wasted gas, because they have nothing to lose.

Your profile

My name is Tariah Ajumogobia, an indigene of Kalabari, Asari Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State. A graduate of Mechanical Engineering, Institute of Management and Technology, Enugu. Having served with different organizations like the Rivers State Vegetable Oil Company, [Maintenance Department], Niger State Polytechnic, Zungeru[Lecturer], and Ocan Energy and Project Limited [Mechanical Engineer]with continue success in meeting operational goals, I can still make more valuable contribution in future projects and initiatives. What I have gain in life is a combination of team leadership and strategic planning skills that I have leveraged to meet and exceed expectations. I have demonstrated proficiency in core office administration functions, including document preparation, internal/external communication. I can manage the office environment without supervision, juggle multiple tasks effectively, and maintain the confidentiality of highly sensitive materials. Examples of result from my experience with my past/cureent employersinclude the followings: Achievement of over 80% accuracy in the maintenance department as an IT student. Implementation of programs to achieve quality and risk mitigation goals. In previous positions, I increased maintenance performance motivated teams to meet employer objectives. Because my success in these areas covers multiple environments, I am confident I can do the same where ever I find my self.

Is time to rise up for a change. both in our power sectors and pollution of our environment by gas flaring for the well being of mankind.
