With Distributed Compression, we ensure you optimal pressure conditions and the best result throughout the wells lifespan. Compare.
Through Distributed Compression we eliminate gathering as an intermediate stage in the transportation of natural gas and achieve the following benefits:
1. Reduction in investments and increased business predictability
The pipe’s diameter is reduced by half and can be dimensioned for a constant pressure over the lifetime of the reservoir (e.g. 1232 psi) which translates into lower costs per meter of steel pipe and installations.
Pressure is kept constant throughout the whole operating life of the reservoir, which eliminates revamping at treatment plants and other facilities.
The modularity and portability of the Wellhead Compressors eliminate the need of civil work, allowing easy and multiple relocations, thus making it possible to incorporate new wells into the system.
The reconfiguration of the compression stages allows the suction pressure to be adjusted throughout the operating life of the well, which eliminates revamping of the Wellhead Compressors.
The full autonomy of the Wellhead Compressors along with their availability of above 99% significantly reduces the operation and maintenance costs.
2. Increased production and profitability levels.
Independent operating conditions in the unconventional reservoir wells generate the highest production levels. In spite of the rapid decline in pressure levels they still produce:
+ 40-80% in gas production in tight/shale gas wells and
+ 50-200% production in liquids in tight/shale gas wells
Conventional wells also show:
+ 50-300% in gas production in mature wells
+ 100-300% in liquid production in mature wells
