Eleven Galileo compressors to process shale gas

Tetratech will use eleven Microskid Process MX 400® compressors to process shale gas from Vaca Muerta formation.

These equipments will constitute an Early Production Facility, which will provide a nominal volume of a million cubic meters of treated natural gas.

With a power of 400 kW each compressor will be coupled to a gas engine to ensure its autonomy by means of its own processed gas, and will feature local liquid discharge.

We are very proud that our equipments have been selected because Vaca Muerta poses the most important challenge in Argentina’s energy agenda in the coming years, ” said Osvaldo del Campo.
