In view ensuring the efficient use of fossil fuel energy and to reduce overall carbon emissions, the possibilities of maximizing exhaust-heat recovery should be seriously considered. Gas turbines reject 50% or more of the energy in the fuel into the atmosphere through the exhaust systems. Some of this energy can help make steam and provide heat to process plants or to generate electricity. Gas turbines utilized to drive gas compressors in pipeline service could benefit from the use of energy recovery systems to reach optimal emission and consumption figures. The majority of compressor stations are…
