Midstream Oil and Gas
Separation of oil, gas and water and the removal of solid contaminants is essential prior to pipeline transportation.
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.

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.
In order to maintain efficient hydrocarbon processing and transportation operations, efficient filtration and separation is critical for the produced fluids as well as a variety of ancillary fluid systems. Midstream oil and gas operations rely on effective and reliable fluid separation systems. Separating produced water from liquid hydrocarbons and reservoir gases is essential to preserving pipeline integrity as well as preserving the life of equipment further downstream. Pall’s advanced separation and filtration technologies deliver premium filtration performance with unmatched reliability and reduced maintenance frequency for a truly streamlined operation.
Beyond the initial separation and filtration of produced fluids, further filtration is required downstream to purify fluid streams even further. This is necessary to preserve the life of compressors and other downstream equipment that are negatively affected by contaminated fluid streams. Pall’s industry leading coalescers deliver premium gas/liquid and liquid/liquid separation with unmatched reliability to increase process efficiency. Furthermore, filtration of supporting fluid systems such as compressor lubricants and solvent recycle systems are necessary to minimize equipment downtime, extend the life of capital equipment, and improve the efficiency of other processing operations.
The reliability of midstream oil and gas processes is paramount to keeping both upstream production and downstream refining facilities online. Failure to effectively separate and filter produced fluids as well as supporting fluid systems throughout the transportation and processing operations can result in lengthy and costly downtime that can escalate and negatively affect the production and refining processes as well. As the global leading in advanced filtration technologies, Pall Corporation delivers proven and complete filtration solutions for all aspects of midstream oil and gas operations.
Initial fluid separation and filtration is a critical first step in the midstream process. Presence of solid particulates in the pipeline negatively impact the life of the pipeline, compressor stations, and process equipment further downstream. Pall particulate filters and coalescers operate with unmatched effectiveness and reliability to separate fluids as well as remove solid contaminants from produced fluids. Also supporting the compressor stations necessary to maintain pipeline pressure, Pall filtration solutions filter and separate pipeline fluids as well as compressor lubricant systems to improve efficiency and extend the life of costly capital equipment.
Dehydration and removal of acid gases are also critical in midstream processing operations. These processes rely on solvents such as amines and glycol to remove water and hydrogen sulfide from produced gas that can corrode pipelines and downstream process equipment as well as present substantial safety risks to personnel. Effective and reliable filtration of these solvents recycle systems is paramount to the efficient removal of water and hydrogen sulfide from gas streams. Pall’s innovative filtration solutions deliver enhanced filtration performance to purify solvent recycle processes to optimize dehydration and acid gas removal process for an improved gas purification process.
Pall’s advanced filtration technology throughout the midstream oil and gas processes deliver a complete filtration solution that enhances filtration performance, increases process reliability, reduces maintenance frequency and downtime, and lowers operating costs for significantly improves business performance.
