Title: PROCESSES FOR STABILIZING A LIQUID HYDROCARBON STREAM
Abstract:
One or more processes for stabilizing a hydrocarbon stream. An un-stabilized hydrocarbon stream comprising C5+ hydrocarbons and including some butane, propane and ethane, may be passed to a first separation zone. The first separation zone has an increased operating pressure so that a residue gas stream recovered from the first separation zone requires minimal compression for further processing. A bottoms stream form the first separation zone is passed to a second, lower pressure separation zone which provides an NGL stream and a C5+ liquid hydrocarbon stream that is stabilized.
