The renewable or non-renewable modern energy kinds have many shapes to utilize power generation. The power chimney tower is one of them developed by low losses, simple and has high facilities that used in spilling oil and/or oil refinery stations and to save clean environment. In this paper, new base design of power chimney used to increase the utilized energy by increasing the number of burners in addition to introducing new burner design by adding directional vanes. Many parameters influencing the system operation were exactly studied to predict new operation phenomenon. This fundamentally depends the combustion of gases compound the spilled oil. Velocity distribution is the important parameter which gives the first prediction to put the position of erection of power turbine, made or not. The numerical analysis was presented by using GAMBIT and FLUENT 6.3 to predict the high velocity at the expansion of chimney near the Centre of burned gases cover collector. This position is very suitable for promoting and building the power turbine since the velocity was high when the compounded gases is combusted (that there components are the methane gas with other friendly gases and waste).Also, it is concluded that there are high temperature increased by using the new burner design reach (1400-1800) K in comparison with old design without swirlers. It is easy to erect steam or gaseous boiler in contact with furnace for utilizes the heat generated in electrical power generation.So, the other factors, temperature and pressure were studied to coincide with previous papers in this field. The validity of this study was done by comparison to same flow rate of air/fuel ratio of previous study findings to give similar results of parameters.
