OIL AND GAS PRODUCTION
Oil and gas production starts at the drill site, where oil and gas exploration and production companies extract raw crude oil from underground wells. Once out of the ground, the practical crude oil and gas 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 drilling and production processes, as well as the unique application requirements of off-shore platforms and floating platform storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels:
Haskel high pressure pumps are utilized for high-pressure leak testing at the wellhead and valve actuation.
Milton Roy metering pumps and customized packages inject methanol to prevent hydrate formation and 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 fractionation drilling process.
Sunflo high pressure pumps are widely utilized for water re-injection services at the well-head.
Sundyne integrally geared compressors with their small footprint and high reliability are utilized for critical process gas services including waste gas recovery, regeneration, offshore pipeline boost and gas separation on FPSO’s.
Marelli API vertical sump pumps are widely utilized for methane and hydrocarbon transfer services.
Midstream companies operate oil and gas pipelines and gathering or transmission facilities responsible for moving natural gas from the wellhead to downstream consumers. Common midstream processors include fractionation plants that treat the raw gas product, remove water and contaminants, and separate natural gas liquids (NGLs) for use as blend components in refineries or as petrochemical feedstock. Once purified, the remaining methane gas is compressed and distributed to downstream consumers. 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.
Sundyne integrally geared and direct drive centrifugal pumps and direct drive centrifugal pumps are widely utilized for boost, fractionation and transfer applications. Sundyne pumps offer low and very low NPSHr and are highly effective for bubble point liquids.
Milton Roy mixers are widely utilized for tank storage and amine injection.
YZ systems oil and gas sampling products measure and inject precise amounts of liquid odorant into each cubic foot, or meter, of gas that flows down a pipeline to ensure detectability.
