Multigeneration systems have proven to be one of the most spectacular and cutting-edge technologies over the previous few decades, producing a diverse range of useful outputs that include electricity, space heating, space cooling, and hydrogen production. However, only single-generation systems have received attention when it comes to using the thermal potential of abandoned wells. Therefore, this study exploits ambient geothermal wells by utilizing a multigeneration system. Oil and natural gas units are typically found to use a large amount of natural gas to meet the electrical demands of worksite personnel and the natural gas compression system which is a costly and environmentally unfriendly process. This study offers a way of dealing with energy demands and environmental contamination that is both sustainable and cost-effective. To make remote oil and natural gas units self-sufficient, a suggested multigeneration system gathers energy from ambient geothermal wells and produces 15.78 MW of electricity. A total of 52,187 kW of heat is produced by the abandoned well. To make industry a negative emission unit, this system collects H2S from natural gas at a rate of 30 g/s and CO2 from ambient air at a rate of 45.39 kg/s (zero self-emission and absorb from the air). © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Islamic Azad University.
