Gas production offshore production offshore<div class="ExternalClass79B5C5E821E14F36935800D96CAB46A3"><p>Howden compressors are used to provide gas conversion to electricity and gas treatment and they are often found installed at the wellhead.  Power supply onsite is often provided by gas turbine generators.  Howden products enhance the efficiency of gas turbine generators by boosting fuel gas and cooling inlet air. Other utilities also benefit from Howden technology.  This includes fans for the extraction of fumes supporting safe working conditions.</p></div><div class="ExternalClass47F9D043D0D24AAFB5D2D8C4CBA0ED62"><p>​Extremely reliable products where reliability is crucial </p></div><div class="ExternalClass90737CF596644A829EE0ADAACC27B018"><div class="container-fluid benefits-panel bg-Hgray" style="padding-top:0px;padding-bottom:0px;"><div class="container"><div class="row"><div class="col-md-4"> <img class="icon" src="/assets/portal/Process/icons/icon-custom-services.svg" alt="" /> <h3 class="white">Comprehensive, Customized Services</h3><p class="white small-text">Oil and gas exploration and extraction often takes place in extreme climatic conditions, including hot, dry desert, sand and salty atmospheres.

Wellhead gas boosting gas boosting<div class="ExternalClassF2396AB55B6B4E6A8B4FC194F62CDB17"><p>Low pressure or aging gas wells require compression for delivery of produced gas into higher pressured gas gathering or pipeline systems. Wellhead compressors are located near the wellhead and lower the field abandonment pressure thereby extending the productive life of the field.</p></div>Oil injected screw compressors
Site utilities/Electricity - fuel gas boosting utilities/Electricity - fuel gas boosting<div class="ExternalClassD03A82EA1DE44501AE9EF2A517FD5D23">Onsite power is often generated using gas turbines fuelled by gas from production processes. Modern turbines have increasing high pressure feed gas requirements designed to optimise power output. As available gas pressure is commonly lower than required it is boosted through a compressor prior to the turbine combustion chamber.</div>Oil free screw compressors, Oil injected screw compressors
Site utilities/ Electricity – turbine inlet air cooling utilities/ Electricity – turbine inlet air cooling<div class="ExternalClass3B123D87B838482D93EDB17BFFFE0541"><p>Gas turbines used for power and compressor drivers can suffer from decreased power output as ambient temperatures increase.  A heat exchanger can be used to cool the inlet air down to the desired temperature via a mechanical refrigeration cycle.  The liquid refrigerant used is expanded at low pressure in an evaporator and the vapour is then compressed. Heat from the compressed refrigerant is then transferred through condensers back to the evaporator in a continuous cycle.</p></div>Oil injected screw compressors
