What is a VRU?

A Vapor Recovery Unit (VRU) is a specialized system designed to extract unwanted or excess vapors from crude oil or distillate tanks. By doing so, it enables operators to adhere to prevailing emission regulations while also recovering valuable hydrocarbon gas. These VRU systems find application in various oil and gas installations and come in several available variants.

Here’s how VRUs work:

  • They capture vapors from sources such as oilcondensate storage gas, or low-volume gas from two oil separators operating at low pressure.
  • The recovered vapors, which would otherwise have been flared or vented, can then be utilized for either fuel or revenue generation.

In summary, VRUs play a crucial role in both environmental compliance and resource recovery within the oil and gas industry. 


Vapor Recovery Units (VRUs) offer several significant benefits in the oil and gas industry:

  1. Environmental Compliance:

  2. Economic Advantage:

  3. Operational Efficiency:

In summary, VRUs protect the environment, comply with regulations, and offer economic and operational benefits. 


Vapor Recovery Units (VRUs) are essential systems used in the oil and gas industry to capture vapors emitted from various sources, including crude oil and condensate storage tanks, pipeline pigging operations, compressors, and dehydrators. Let’s delve into the technology behind VRUs:
