The purpose of this report is to study on `The Removal of Water Vapour from. Natural Gas by Using Membrane Separation'. This report includes the objectives, scopes of study, problem statement, literature review, methodology, results, discussion, conclusion and recommendations. The main objective of this project is to analyze the performance and efficiency of membrane to remove water vapour from natural gas. Literature review is studied to obtain the properties and characteristics of flat membrane. Experimental lab is conducted to test the performance of the membrane under various operating pressure. The percentage of water vapour removal from methane and hydrocarbon loss under various pressures is plot. It is observed that the removal of water vapour increases as pressure increases, which means the membrane separate more water vapour from methane at high pressure. Unfortunately, the percentage of hydrocarbon loss also increases as the pressure increases. Thus, it is recommended for next study that optimization is to be conducted based on cost analysis in order to minimize hydrocarbon loss and maximize water vapour removal by the membrane. As the conclusion, the objective of this protect to analyze the perfonnnce of the membrane is achieved. The flat membrane used in this project is classified as asymmetry, integrally skinned and dense top layer membrane. The membrane consists of mainly O-H, NH, C=O and C- H functional groups. The degradation temperature of the membrane is 430.60°C. As for performance analysis, it is obtained that the percent of water vapour removal and hydrocarbon loss increase as the pressure increases
