Benefits of On-site Nitrogen Generators in the Oil and Gas Industry

Thanks to its odorless and non-reactive properties, nitrogen gas has many uses in the oil and gas industry. From moving materials through pipelines at refineries to re-pressurizing depleted oil wells and serving as a gas barrier to prevent explosions, on-site nitrogen generators can increase production and improve job-site safety.  Here are some of the many benefits to an on-site nitrogen generator:

Nitrogen Generators Reduce Downtime While Increasing Production

With on-site nitrogen generators, companies in the oil and gas industry are able to make their own nitrogen gas on-demand, which can eradicate unnecessary downtime and improve production rates. Additionally, an on-site nitrogen generator eliminates the need for constant nitrogen gas tank deliveries.

Nitrogen Generators Can be Easily Moved or Expanded

Another tremendous benefit of on-site nitrogen generators to the oil and gas industry is their capability to be easily moved from location to another (stationary nitrogen generators are also available, if preferred). The nitrogen generators are fully automated and simply require an electrical outlet to get started. Their maintenance is minimal and their operation is easy. Furthermore, nitrogen generators can be expanded and/or upgraded in the future, helping companies in the oil and gas industry grow as demand increases.

Nitrogen Generators Keep Worksites Safer

In the oil and gas industry, safety is always a concern. With on-site nitrogen generators, safety concerns can be greatly reduced in a variety of situations where an inert atmosphere is required. If that’s not enough, on-site nitrogen generators also eliminate the need for high-pressure cylinders to be handled and stored – another great benefit within such sensitive and sometimes dangerous environments.

Visit Us at the Gastech Conference & Exhibition to Learn More

If you are in the oil and gas industry, the Gastech Conference and Exhibition in Singapore is right around the corner – taking place from October 27-30, 2015. It is your chance to find out about the latest innovations in the industry, such as our on-site nitrogen generators.

Experts from On Site Gas Systems will be available to answer any and all of your questions about nitrogen generators and how they apply to the oil and gas industry. Our nitrogen generators can be seen at jobsites worldwide, and it’s time to put one to work for your company.
