Technical gas compressors
and Oil & Gas applications


Market challenges put our technicians in front of increasingly diverse and interesting applications.

The versatility of our reciprocating compressor solutions and the continuous research of our R&D department means we can offer the most suitable customised solution to meet all your needs.

We have decades of experience in the oil and gas industry, both in terms of actual process requirements and from a quality engineering perspective.

FORNOVO GAS compressors are widely used in the compression of technical gases. Air compressors, carbon dioxide compressors and nitrogen compressors ensure the optimal operation of equipment and machinery and promote efficient production processes employing oil-free cylinders.

Technical gas compressors and Oil & Gas applications: FAQ

1. What are the lead times?

Lead times vary according to the project type and the required service.

The usual estimated maximum lead times for standard projects are as follows:

  • CNG projects: up to 4 months (excluding August and public holidays)
  • Biomethane projects: up to 6 months (excluding August and public holidays)
  • Oil & Gas projects: up to 12 months (excluding August and public holidays)
  • Hydrogen projects: up to 12 months (excluding August and public holidays)
2. Do you sell standard machines or can your compressors be customised?

We believe that a compressor must adapt perfectly to the application and not vice versa.

Fornovo Gas compressors are custom-designed and custom-built for each individual offer accordingly to process requirements and the structural conditions of the plant.

Our team of specialised technicians and engineers will evaluate every aspect of the project before submitting you the best solution: they will examine gas composition, process parameters, environmental conditions and certifications, among other factors.

We can also ensure a complete customisation of the enclosure, by allowing the choice of interior room distribution, of the colour and sound insulation (even certified at client request) down to a noise level of 50dB@1meter.

Ask for your consultancy. We are at your disposal!

3. How long is the warranty on your compressors/equipment?

We offer a 1-year (12-month) warranty, extendable up to 2 years (24 months).

Our service department is always available to solve any problems that may arise, even after the warranty period.

We offer tailored maintenance agreements with immediate and guaranteed response times and strategic spare parts always in stock for any eventuality.

For more information, please refer to the SERVICES AND SPARE PARTS page in the MAINTENANCE AGREEMENTS section.

Choose safety and reliability. Contact us for your customised solution!

4. How do you guarantee product quality?

All our compressor bare shafts undergo a no-load test to ensure their correct mechanical operation.

The complete system solutions (skid and cab) are tested with a nitrogen-hydrogen mixture (95/5) to guarantee the required performance and detect possible leakages.

We have many international certifications (ISO, PED, ATEX, EAC, etc.), which as a whole ensure that Fornovo Gas products are top-quality and meet the needs of every customer.


Fornovo Gas has obtained many international certifications demonstrating its practical commitment to quality in the design and manufacture of compressors that meet the most stringent requirements.
A strategic choice to achieve long-term customer satisfaction.
