Super High Pressure Compressor Trouble Shooting and Operation



Oil and Gas treatment processes require specialized equipment to provide the energy to move large quantities of the liquids and gases through piping and pipelines designed for those purposes. This movement occurs from the oil and gas fields through refining and processing plants, and onwards to the storage and sales points. The equipment used for to move the fluids are termed rotating equipment. These types of equipment are used extensively and provide an increase in pressure for both liquid and gas streams to enable the passage of fluids to the required destination.
