As they drill deeper under the ocean floor, oil producers are asking for even more pressure to sustain the strong, steady crude flows needed to justify their huge development costs and royalties. Every bar of additional pressure counts.
The gas turbine industry is continuously developing new technology to meet the demands and requirements for greater output and reliability. Minimizing fuel costs, improving efficiency and environmental responsibility to reduce emissions are important factors.
The demands on the ideal barrier fluid are challenging and it is sometimes difficult to find a product that perfectly fits the application. With this in mind, EagleBurgmann is now offering BarrierPro, a barrier fluid series that has been developed from the highest quality synthetic base stocks and fortified with additives to provide a non-reactive, oxidatively-stable fluid for seal service over a wide temperature range.
Multiphase pumps for crude oil are truly multitalented. They reliably pump mixtures of crude oil, formation water and natural gas in vastly differing concentrations and compositions. The pump’s sensitive components include the mechanical seals.
At 3.7 million tons a year, German production of crude oil covers about 3 percent of domestic demand.
The largest recoverable reserves are located in Northern Germany. Compared to other oil & gas producing regions, extraction and refining in Germany tend to be more challenging.
In several industry sectors, the use of vapor compressors is increasing – mainly to replace turbo compressors due to purchase and maintenance costs. Vapor compressors are used in processes where process-related high temperature differences are required.
Petrobrás is a multinational energy corporation headquartered in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Transpetro, a subsidiary of Petrobrás, is responsible for the operations of its compression stations located remotely in the middle of the rainforest in the state of Amazonas.
Queensland Alumina (QAL) is one of the world´s largest aluminum oxide producers and meets around 10 percent of global need. Centrifugal slurry pumps of a reputable, international pump manufacturer are currently used in their production to pump aggressive media with a high solids content.
Colombia is the 26th largest nation in the world and the fourth largest in South America. In spite of hardship, Colombia‘s economy has grown steadily and has one of the highest growth rates in Latin America. The country is rich in natural resources, with one of its main exports being petroleum.
With the increasing gap between rising maintenance costs and limited budgets, a solution proven to be a valuable option for expansion joint repair is to refurbish existing plant equipment. For one of the world’s largest producers of ethylene and propylene oxide, refurbishment was a solution that offered maximum results at minimal cost.
