Marathon Petroleum uses ZEVAC to reduce flaring emissions

Marathon Reducing Fugitive Methane Emissions in Midstream Operations.

From the report...
Flaring reductions: In April 2019, we received an environmental excellence award from the Gas Processors Association for developing a mobile compressor to recover gases vented from a launcher and receiver station that was previously required to be flared. The “zero emission vacuum compressor” (ZEVAC) is able to recover gases that would have been sent to a flare and compress them back into the gathering system. This eliminates hydrocarbon flaring and reduces GHGs, including methane.
