Great Southern Flameless will design and supply furnaces and process heating units
July 6, 2023, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma ‐‐ Great Southern Flameless (GSF) announced today it has been awarded a commercial agreement with Southern Rock Energy Partners to design and supply furnaces and process heating units for a first‐of‐its‐kind crude refinery in Cushing, Oklahoma.
While most refineries consume natural gas, refining off‐gases, and ambient air in the furnaces and process heating units, this proposed facility would instead combine pure oxygen with “blue” hydrogen (produced from refining off‐gases) and “green” hydrogen (from electrolysis), with water, oxygen, and argon being the primary waste stream.
By consuming 100% hydrogen and oxygen as a fuel source in the furnaces and process heating units, Southern Rock Energy’s proposed 250,000 bpd crude refinery complex will reduce and eliminate 95% of greenhouse gas emissions (methane, carbon monoxide and dioxides, and nitrogen and sulfur oxides) utilizing GSF Cool Combustion Technology while still producing approximately 91.25 million barrels or 3.8325 billion gallons annually of cleaner transportation fuels including gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel from crudes sourced domestically from the Anadarko, Denver‐Julesburg, Permian, and Bakken Basins.
