Gas Processing Plants

Gas Processing Plants

Natural gas production is increasing worldwide since natural gas is gaining market share as source of power. During the production process the gas must be treated to meet the specifications of marketable natural gas.

Feed gas compressors maintain the operational pressure of gas processing plants. Different processes are applied to treat natural gas such as:

  • Condensate removal (flash gas compressors, off gas compressors)
  • Acid gas/mercury/water removal (regeneration gas compressors)
