How injection of high-pressure nitrogen gas can help to increase oil production:
Air Products’ industrial gases are being used to significantly increase recoverable hydrocarbon reserves. Our enhanced recovery technology spans the production of high-purity nitrogen for applications such as pressure maintenance, miscible displacements, and recovery of natural gas liquids (NGL). Air Products has successfully supplied multiple nitrogen injection and nitrogen rejection projects and continues to be at the forefront of developing enhanced recovery techniques involving non-hydrocarbon gases.
On-site gas generation helps sustainability-minded customers lower their carbon footprint, boost energy efficiency, increase throughput, enhance end product quality, and improve environmental performance.
