Upstream and downstream entities are connected by the midstream operations. This includes any storage facilities before it reaches the refinery.

It refers to the transportation from the drilling rig or vessel to other sites for processing using vessels (ships), pipelines, rail tankers and/or oil tankers, and vehicles.

Transportation and storage of resources using pipelines and gathering systems are the main components of midstream activities.

The importance of midstream

This is important to remove solid contaminants prior to pipeline transportation and minimize downtime if you wanna optimize your oil & gas midstream performance.

Upstream production and downstream refining facilities both depend on the dependability of midstream oil and gas operations to remain operational.

Long and expensive downtime might be the result of improperly separating and filtering produced fluids and supporting fluid systems during transportation and processing processes.

The removal of solid pollutants requires midstream filtration and separation of supporting fluid systems, such as compressor lubricants and solvent recycle systems.

With the help of our solutions, you can reduce downtime for equipment, increase the lifespan of capital equipment, and boost the effectiveness of other processing activities at your oil and gas complex.

Systems for fluid separation are used in midstream activities. To maintain pipeline integrity and the lifespan of equipment further downstream generated water must be separated from liquid hydrocarbons and reservoir gases.

For an effective, streamlined operation, our cutting-edge separation and filtration technologies give top filtration performance with unrivaled dependability and decreased maintenance frequency.

Other fluids, including lubricants and solvents, are similarly necessary for the fluid transfer and processing activities, even though it is essential to separate and filter generated oil, gas, and water to protect pipelines and downstream machinery.

Further downstream filtration is necessary to continuously cleanse fluid streams in order to prolong the lifespan of compressors and other downstream equipment that are adversely impacted by contaminated fluid streams.

To purify fluid streams, more filtering is needed downstream after the first separation and filtration of produced fluids.

This is required to prolong the life of downstream equipment, such as compressors, which are adversely impacted by contaminated fluid streams.

To achieve the requirements for pipeline quality, dehydration and the removal of acid gases are equally important in midstream processing processes.

These procedures rely on solvents like amines and glycol to get rid of water and hydrogen sulfide from generated gas, which can corrode pipelines and equipment used in subsequent operations as well as pose serious dangers to workers’ safety.
