OffshoreExploration and extraction of oil and gas offshore present the first of many challenges in delivering the world’s energy, fuel and consumable products.
Reducing capital and operating costs are benefits CALGAVIN® can offer in exchanger design.
Reducing costs upstreamToday, Oil companies produce an average three barrels of water for each barrel of oil from their depleting reservoirs. Every year more than $40 Billion is spent dealing with unwanted water.’*
This is one example of the critical issues that affect offshore processing and one that can be improved upon by CALGAVIN®’s products. CALGAVIN has worked with global players such as Shell, ONGC, Total, INEOS, Exxon Mobil, PEMEX, PTT and more, who have all benefitted with enhancement achieving a reduction in costs.
Production profits from the offshore industry are directly affected by the current price of oil. For this reason, there is constant pressure to minimise production costs often in investment when oil prices are high. CALGAVIN’s product hiTRAN® Thermal Systems will give benefits for critical applications, such as reduced size of heat exchangers, reduced number of units, reduced plot space/weight and improved product quality.
