Natural gas is considered as the most promising fossil fuel of the future. However; its route from the production to the end use requires substantial processing. The scope of the thesis is the study of the available established technologies targeted to a product of commercial value. Basic design considerations of an acid gas removal unit and a dehydration unit are presented; where the target is the removal of H2S, CO2 and water content respectively.Simulation of an acid gas removal unit using DEA and a dehydration unit using T.E.G. was conducted in collaboration with Asprofos Engineering company, by using the Aspen HYSYS Software. A North Pars Iranian gas is introduced as a feed case study. This type of gas is considered to be lean and sour. The simulation of the designed units succeeds to produce 30 MMSCFD of natural gas rich in methane and free of H2S and water content.
