A POWERFUL CHOICE FOR OIL & GAS PRODUCTION
Today natural gas accounts for 23% of the world’s energy consumption and usage is growing. Getting this abundant fuel into the global energy stream requires compressing it for efficient handling. Engine-driven compressors compress gas at the wellhead, gather gas from multiple wells, and send it to processing facilities.
For wellhead and gas-gathering applications, a dependable compression system that operates efficiently is essential to keeping the gas moving and productivity and profitability high. GE’s portfolio of aeroderivative gas turbines for compression applications offers multiple options to address individual site conditions and widely varying local emissions requirements.
GE’s aeroderivative gas turbines are widely used to drive compressors at production sites. They typically run on raw gas taken directly from the well head. For gas lift, the compressor injects gas into an oil well casing where it passes through lift valves at various elevations causing oil to be lifted out of the well. For gas injection, the compressor injects gas into an oil formation to increase pressure and force more oil and gas out though through the well pipe.
At gas production sites, a dependable engine or turbine-driven compression system that operates efficiently is essential to keeping the gas flowing and productivity and profitability high. Running on raw gas from the wellhead, GE's aeroderivative gas turbines perform with extreme reliability in remote and often harsh environments, and GE offers technology options to meet most local air quality mandates.
