OIL AND GAS PRODUCTION
Oil and gas production starts at the drill site, where oil exploration and production companies execute the process of extracting crude oil from underground wells. Once out of the ground, the crude oil undergoes an initial round of processing to separate the rich mixture of hydrocarbons, gas, solids and water in preparation for transport to refineries via pipeline, oil tanker, railcar or truck. Accudyne Industries business units manufacture pumps and compressors that are designed to stand up to the rigors associated with fractionalization drilling processes, as well as the unique application requirements of off-shore platforms and floating platform storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels:
Haskel gas boosters are utilized for underwater high-pressure leak testing at the wellhead.
Milton Roy metering pumps and customized packages inject methanol to prevent hydrate formation or corrosion inhibitors to maximize production flow in onshore and offshore wells.
Sundyne integrally geared pumps, and HMD sealless magnetic drive pumps with their small footprints are widely found on offshore platforms and FPSO’s where operators require safe and reliable separation and transfer processes.
ANSIMAG sealless magnetic drive pumps feed LACT units at the well-head in the fractionalization drilling process.
Sunflo high pressure pumps are widely utilized for water re-injection services at the well-head.
The midstream market refers to companies focused on operating the pipeline and gathering or transmission facilities responsible for natural gas from the upstream wellhead to downstream consumers. Common midstream processors include fractionalization plants that treat the raw gas product, remove water and waste, and ultimately separate and sell natural gas liquids (NGLs) for use as blend components in refineries or as petrochemical feedstock. Ultimately, the purified gas is compressed and distributed to downstream markets. Accudyne Industries business units manufacture a range of pumps and compressors that play key roles in midstream operations:
Sundyne compressors are widely used for mole sieve regeneration, off gas, natural gas boost, nitrogen circulation and demethanizer applications.
Milton Roy mixers are widely utilized for tank storage, coal to liquid, gasoline and amine injection.
YZ systems oderization, sampling and detection products make natural gas safe for distribution.
