In the Southern Region of our Country (Argentina), pipeline natural gas is heated up to suitable temperatures by combustion of natural gas in indirect type heating systems. In one of the points in which such heating is necessary, the pipeline that transports about 14 million standard cubic meters per day of natural gas at 45 bar of pressure and whose temperature is wanted to rise from −2°C to 30°C, is placed about 500 m away from of a regional thermoelectric power station. It has 3 7 MW gas turbines, exhausting 25.8 kg/s of combustion gases at 510°C each. A preliminary calculation showed that the waste heat of one of them can closely supply the necessary duty for gas heating. In this work, a preliminary analysis and economics of the system are described.
