Solution Gas Compressors handle low-volume applications.

Press Release Summary:

With compression element designed for low-volume solution gas applications, Hydraulic Casing Gas (HCG) compressors do not have such common failure points as pneumatic control valves or liquid separation and handling equipment. This design eliminates any possibility of liquid lock. Also, independence of pump jack enables both pump jack and compressor to be individually managed as to maximize oil production. Capacity control system reduces and maintains casing pressure at settable level.

Compact Compression Announces New Line of Hydraulic Casing Gas Compressors

CALGARY – Compact Compression Inc. is announcing the commercial roll out of the Hydraulic Casing Gas (HCG) line of Solution Gas compressors.  The HCG compressor has a new and novel compression element designed specifically for low-volume solution gas applications.  It's simple, robust and low cost design eliminates the need for the most common failure points of a Casing Gas compressor:  pneumatic control valves and liquid separation and handling equipment.

After two years of development and successful field-testing, the team is beginning large-scale production of their latest innovation. Their highly anticipated compressor can already be found at a number of oil wells in the WCSB.

Chris Blundell, President of Compact Compression Inc. explains, "The new HCG compressor is designed to process liquids, so there is no possibility of liquid lock. It does not have pneumatic control valves, a scrubber, float switches, or a liquid pump, which means less downtime due to failures. The new compressor is also independent of the pump jack so both the pump jack and compressor can be individually managed to maximize oil production; the compressor's capacity control system will rapidly reduce and maintain casing pressure at an easily set level.

"The new HCG compressor is simple and quick to install or remove which minimises production losses and associated cost due to service or installation. Further, in the unlikely event of a shut down, the satellite call out system will instantly notify Compact Compression service to expedite a response.  Less downtime, fewer failures and reduced operating costs is how the new HCG compressor will increase production and profits. "

As with every unit produced by Compact Compression, the new HCG compressor continues the theme of reducing hassle for the operator with increased profits and minimal customer investment. Compact Compression offers flexible and affordable options for both renting and purchasing which includes their all-inclusive approach to service and maintenance. With the launch of the new HCG compressor, there has never been a more hassle-free way to optimize production.

The company will be exhibiting the new HCG Compressor at the Global Petroleum Show June 9 to 11. The engineering team will be available to answer questions about their latest innovation.
