Compressor Skids

As natural gas reservoir pressures decrease or loading occurs, conventional production methods become less efficient. If determined to be economical, compressor skids are used at the wellhead to increase production. Mechanical and analog instruments are commonly selected for their lower cost, compact size and ability to respond quickly to critical process conditions (e.g. surge detection). As shown, pressure switches, transmitters and temperature switches are used to facilitate this process.
