Eden Yuturi, Ecuador

In 2008, PETROAMAZONAS EP (PAM), the Ecuadorian state-owned oil company, ordered a gas conversion of their Eden Yuturi power plant enabling them to utilise associated gas that was being flared. Four 18-cylinder Wärtsilä Vasa 32 low NOX gas (LNGD) engines in V-configuration generating 20–24 MW power were converted. Every 1 million cubic feet (28317 cubic metres) per day of flare gas optimised for power generation represents approximately 160 barrels of crude oil per day.
