Durable and Reliable
Proven Performance in Every Environment Across the World
A reciprocating natural gas compressor is a positive displacement compressor that delivers natural gas at a higher pressure. Enerflex manufactures reciprocating compression packages from 20 HP to 10,000 HP.
Reciprocating Solutions for Every Operational Challenge
Having designed and built thousands of packages, Enerflex sees a trend towards both larger horsepower for more centralized compression to optimize field operating costs, and lower horsepower for the slower producing, maturing wells to maximize field production. We also have extensive experience with electric-drive motors.
Enerflex offers financing options on individual packages to large-scale custom builds. We also supply retrofit, overhaul, and after-market services on all units and facilities.
Enerflex in Action
- Tapinhoa, Brazil
13,000 HP Compression Station
Enerflex was required to provide a solution that delivers fuel gas to a large power generating facility. The project required a 13,000 HP pipeline booster station to be constructed in a remote and challenging location in rural Brazil. Geographical constraints required the compressor station to be situated on a hilltop, requiring a considerable amount of grading to create a suitable space for the facility.
Enerflex provided an integrated solution that included three 4,500 HP compression packages. This included the full civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering, design, installation, and commissioning onsite. The project was delivered on-time and on-budget in 210 days from purchase order to plant acceptance.
- Wapiti, Alberta, Canada
3,500 PSIG Acid Gas Injection Compressor and Pump Package
Enerflex installed a 1,600 HP electric-drive motor to power a six-throw, five-stage, extremely high sour acid gas Ariel JGK frame compressor. The package included an on-skid LEWA pump on discharge for down-hole liquid injection. All piping and vessels were built from stainless steel for durability.
The technical specifications included 85% H2S acid gas service condensing on fifth-stage final discharge, with a 300 HP on-skid LEWA G3R diaphragm injection pump.
At 85%, Enerflex achieved its highest percentage of H2S with this unit, which has an on-skid discharge injection pump installed inside the compressor building for liquid injection into the well.
