New line of Hydraulic Casing Gas Compressors

Compact Compression Inc. has announced its new line of Hydraulic Casing Gas (HCG) 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.
“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,”Chris Blundell, President of Compact Compression Inc. explained. He continues,“The new HCG compressor is simple and quick to install or remove which minimizes 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.”
