Oil and Gas: A compression solution for every O&G application
Oil&Gas compression solution: Fornovo Gas units can compress various kinds of gas such as:
- Natural gas (dry or wet)
- Raw Biogas
- Sour gas
In various applications:
Collection and compression of gas flowing from wellhead(s) and transportation to treatment plant:
Typical inlet pressure range: 0,5 – 5 bar
Typical outlet pressure range: 15 – 50 bar
Compressor features for marine versions:
FORNOVO GAS technology is one of the most advanced in the Marine’s compressor market, thanks to the FEA (Finite Element Analysis) of each component. This in depth study allows FORNOVO GAS to reach high levels of performance in line with the best compressors manufacturer in the world in terms of durability, stability and vibration control.
Re-compression of natural gas in order to mantain pipeline pressure (to compensate pressure drops).
Typical inlet pressure range:40-60 bar
Typical outlet pressure range:70 bar
Flare or vent gas recovery
Recovery of gas from plant vent lines or vapour recovery from hydrocarbon liquid storages: gas is recompressed for further uses.
Typical inlet pressure range:0,1-0,2 bar,
Typical outlet pressure range:10 bar
Reservoir Gas Injection
Gas compression and injection into reservoir, in order to keep reservoir pressure high and increase oil production
Typical inlet pressure range: 5-60 bar
Typical outlet pressure range: 50-150 bar
Gas storage injection/withdrawal
Compression of gas into an underground storage for future withdrawal and re-compression into pipeline.
Typical inlet pressure range:50-60 bar
Typical outlet pressure range:100-300 bar
LNG Boil Off Gas compression
Compression and boost of Boil Off Gas that is continuously generated from LNG liquid level into the LNG storage due to externally applying heat and fluctuations to that level.
Typical inlet pressure range: 0-0,5 bar
Typical outlet pressure range: depends on the process
Gas lift compression
Gas inection into tube casing anulus in order to decrease tube oil density: this increase hydrostatic density difference between reservoir and tubing, thus favouring oil production.
Typical inlet pressure range: 5-10 bar
Typical outlet pressure range: 50-100 bar
Power plants Fuel gas boosting
Natural gas compression in order to match fuel feeding pressure in gasturbines or internal combustion engines.
Typical inlet pressure range: 5-10 bar
Typical outlet pressure range: 20-30 bar
Generation of a flame front in the reservoir by introducing oxygen-rich gases: the heat generated reduces oil viscosity and vaporize water, pushing oil toward well(s)
Typical inlet pressure range:5-10 bar
Typical outlet pressure range:50-100 bar
Compressor advantages: Minimum vibration level.
The specifically designed skid chassis ensures the both elasticity and rigidity adequate to keep the system balanced at any time, from start to operation at full capacity.
We guarantee a vibration speed of <5 mm/s
Vibration measurement points could be done in automatic at diffrent points.
Compressor advantages: Oil – Gas separation
Thanks to the special design of FORNOVO GAS high pressure pistons with floating seals, the gas is helping the lubrication of the cylinders and reducing the need of oil.
Oil consumption is maximum 1 kg every 100 working hours
The pistons and the valves are manufactured by a specialized Austrian supplier exclusively for FORNOVO GAS
Refinery (Refinery/Petrochemical Services)
General refinery or Petrochemical Services which involve compression of gas (hydrocarbon based gases or others).
Typical inlet and outlet pressure ranges depend on particular process.
Compressor advantages: Speed range and efficiency.
The direct coupling is the best available in the field of mechanical transmission as the mechanical efficiency is the highest possible. It is undoubtedly more efficient than traditional belts, which also have to be replaced frequently, and is therefore ideal for this type of application.
Compressor advantages: Minimum vibration level
Setting of the masses at the lowest possible level, containment of the maximum height and the arrangement at V 90° or W 120° of the cylinders brings additional mechanical advantages.
- High performance
- 24 working hours for 7 days/week
- Optional configuration for 100% oil-free
