Efficiency is the name of the game in the oil and gas industry. You don’t want to leave any money on the table, and every penny saved can go a long way in boosting profitability.

So how can you help ensure maximum efficiency while juggling the complex operations of this industry? The answer lies in your compressor’s productivity. Air and gas compressors have the ability to significantly impact operational efficiency and maximize cost savings.

Let’s take a look at how these machines can revolutionize your operations, keep your equipment in top shape, and ultimately lead to a more profitable bottom line.

Behind-the-Scenes Workhorses

While they may not get the same attention as some other flashy equipment, compressors are workhorses of the oil and gas industry. They are responsible for two main tasks:

  1. Gas Compression: Gas compressors are used for a number of processes, but mainly to increase the pressure of natural gas, making it easier to transport through pipelines, and store in storage tanks. Without them, our natural gas would struggle to make its way from its source to our homes, businesses, and industrial processes.
  1. Air Compression: Air compressors provide clean, dry, and reliable air to power various instruments and control devices in the oil and gas industry. These critical machines ensure everything from valves to measurement devices function smoothly and efficiently.

Keeping Compressors in Tip-Top Shape 

Just like any machinery, compressors require regular maintenance to keep them humming along right. Oil and gas companies can extend the lifespan of their compressors and avoid costly breakdowns by logging scheduled maintenance and promptly addressing any issues. Here are a few steps to help ensure longevity:

  • Regular Inspections: Keep a keen eye on your compressors and schedule regular inspections. A little preventative maintenance can go a long way in preventing costly breakdowns.
  • Proper Lubrication: In compressors that require oil, lubrication is the key to keeping them running smoothly. Use the right lubricants in the right quantities to reduce heat, maintain compressor, and alleviate likelihood of premature failure to internal critical components.
  • Air Filter Checks: Take a breath of fresh air! Check and replace air filters regularly to keep your compressors breathing easy and prevent contamination. Pressure differential of as little as 10-13″ of water column indicates need for filter change.

Big Money Savings with Maximized Efficiency

Energy consumption is a significant cost for oil and gas companies. 

Upgrading to modern, energy-efficient compressors can help reduce your energy consumption and improve cost savings. Newer models often come equipped with advanced features that optimize their performance while using less power.

Have you noticed your energy bill is becoming increasingly higher year over year? It could be your compressor. Assess your compressor usage to ensure that you are running them at their most efficient capacity. Oversized, underutilized, improperly maintained, and outdated compressors can result in wasted energy and unnecessary costs for your operations.
