Enhanced performance for Enhanced
Oil Recovery gas injectants.
With the right solution, nitrogen can be even more
At Gas Systems Corporation, we tailor our nitrogen gas generation technology to fit your particular oilfield application and then support it with service in the years to follow. Our solutions are especially well suited for Enhanced Oil Recovery. Gas injectants, such as nitrogen, are used to increase oil production in depleted formations—thereby safeguarding and extending the life of the natural resource.
Nitrogen has been used successfully for more than 20 years in pressure maintenance and has now gained prominence over the last decade as the injectant of choice for enhanced oil and gas recovery. Nitrogen can be produced on-location in limitless supply, it is non-corrosive, produces no undesirable by-products and best of all, is the least expensive option to enhance oil recovery.
Nitrogen can be produced at almost any reservoir site using proven non-cryogenic technology and various energy sources. This technology, integrated with gas turbine drive compression equipment, has resulted in a highly efficient nitrogen generation system. It produces the lowest possible gas injection cost. In addition, nitrogen provides a higher reservoir displacement volume per standard volume of nitrogen than any other gas injectant; that is, it offers the lowest volume requirement for pressure maintenance.
Applications include using nitrogen as a driving force for costly and limited carbon dioxide, and in some cases, for miscible displacement. The displacement of gas-cap gas, the production of attic reservoirs, the cycling of condensate reservoirs, maintenance of reservoir pressure, "Huff & Puff" cyclic process, and dilution of high BTU natural gas, are among many other applications currently being used with outstanding success.
Because of the inert and non-corrosive nature of nitrogen, on-stream availability for these plants range from 98 to 99 percent, including down time for scheduled preventative maintenance. This makes nitrogen a highly reliable source as a pressure maintenance injection gas.
