Oil & Gas Segments
View our segments below
  • Upstream

    The upstream part of the oil and gas business is comprised of oil and gas production facilities. These facilities are where hydrocarbons are first recovered in the process. The hydrocarbon fluids produced around the world can vary greatly. Some reservoirs are oil rich, while others may be gas reservoirs that produce a relatively small amount of liquids produced. Others may be largely wet, meaning the majority of the produced fluids are actually water and not hydrocarbons. Whatever the case may be produced fluids require effective filtration in order to be efficiently processed.

  • Midstream

    Transportation of produced fluids, gas processing, and LNG production is what comprises the midstream segment. The complex system of pipelines, compressor stations and access points move product to endpoint. Gas plants condition natural gas for industrial and consumer use. LNG facilities liquefy or regasify natural gas for economic long distance transport.

Pall Oil & Gas

SepraSol™ Plus Liquid/Gas Coalescer

SepraSol™ Plus Liquid/Gas Coalescer

Clean, aerosol free gas is critical to equipment reliability and optimized operations in the refinery and chemical industries. Pall's SepraSol™ liquid/gas coalescers provide high-efficiency liquid and solid removal from contaminated gases reducing maintenance and operating costs. 

Midstream

Our advanced filtration solutions for midstream oil and gas processes remove contaminants and separate fluids with unmatched effectiveness and reliability for streamlined operations and improved business performance.

Midstream transportation and processing of hydrocarbons from production location to refining facilities requires the collaboration of multiple complex processes that rely on a variety of fluid filtration processes for reliable operation. 

While it is crucial to separate and filter produced oil, gas, and water to preserve pipelines and downstream equipment, other fluids such as lubricants and solvents are equally important for the reliability and efficiency of the fluid transfer and processing operations. Our advanced filtration solutions for midstream operations effectively and reliably separate and filter produced fluids, solvents and lubricants to minimize maintenance downtime, lower operating costs, extend the life of capital equipment and improve business performance.

AquaSep® Plus L/L Coalescer System

AquaSep® Plus L/L Coalescer System

Entrained water in liquid hydrocarbons and chemicals can be a problem. This is particularly true for fuels that contain high concentrations of surfactants which are readily present in hydrocarbons and chemicals (see below). Surfactants make water removal difficult for conventional liquid/liquid coalescers and other water separation equipment because they lower the interfacial tension between the water and the continuous phase fluid.

Filtration. Separation. Solution.

Advanced filtration solutions for the oil and gas industry deliver enhanced filtration performance across the upstream, midstream, and downstream business units for reduced operating costs and improved process efficiency.

Effective and reliable filtration is extremely important through the production, transportation, and refining of produced hydrocarbons. Failure to remove contaminants from critical processes results in decreased process efficiency, increased operating costs and heightened risk of damaging sensitive equipment downstream.

 

While each filtration step is extremely important, upstream filtration operations set the stage for the rest of the journey for produced hydrocarbons. Mistakes in this part of the business can cascade and magnify resulting in extensive maintenance down time for pipeline or equipment repairs. This same principal applies until the very last filtration step of the refining process.  Implementing an optimized filtration strategy across the business is key to reducing operating costs, minimizing downtime and improving overall business performance.

 

As the global leader in advanced filtration technology, we have developed premium filtration solutions for all aspects of the oil and gas industry that improve contaminant removal, reduce the frequency of maintenance activities, improve end-product quality and reduce operating costs for a streamlined and optimized hydrocarbon processing operation.

 

The oil and gas industry contains an extremely complex network of processing and pipeline equipment. For this series of piping and equipment to function reliably at its highest level, the fluids being transported must be effectively filtered as well as the ancillary fluid loops such as equipment lubricants, catalysts, and solvents. Ineffective filtration at any point in the process can have costly consequences that magnify as the processes both upstream and downstream of the affected unity suffer from the inefficiencies or maintenance shutdowns.

 

From upstream solids removal and fluid separation, to midstream compressor reliability, to the precision downstream refining processes, the filtration needs of the oil and gas industry are incredibly diverse.  Our line of coalescer products deliver premium solids removal and fluid separation in the upstream segment that aids in preventing contaminants from damaging downstream pipelines and process equipment. Filtration for lubricant oil systems ensure midstream compressor reliability to minimize downtime as well as preserve the life of capital equipment. Phase separation and particulate removal in the downstream segment of the business promotes high efficiency chemical processes while minimizing downtime and preserving the life of process equipment.

 

With over 50 years of filtration experience, we understand the intricate nuances of the oil and gas industry’s filtration needs.  As such, we have developed premium filtration solutions for the oil and gas industry specifically designed to maximize reliability, minimize maintenance downtime, and improve process efficiency for enhanced business performance. Ready to learn more about Pall’s technologically advanced filtration solutions for the oil and gas industry?  Contact our team of filtration experts today!

Liquid / Gas Separation Technology

Removing liquids and solids from a gas stream is very important in refining and gas processing applications. Effective removal of these contaminants can prevent costly problems and downtime with downstream equipment like compressors, turbines, and burners. In addition, hydrocarbons and solid contaminants can induce foaming in an amine contactor tower and can contribute to premature catalyst changeouts in catalytic processes. In compressors that use oil to lubricate cylinders, the lube oil often gets into the discharge gas causing contamination downstream. A thin film of hydrocarbon deposited on heat exchangers will thicken and coke, decreasing heat transfer efficiency, increasing energy consumption and creating a risk of hot spots and leaks.
