Bauer Kompressoren launches compressors for offshore operations

Bauer compressorsCompressor Solutions Provider for the oil and gas industry in upstream, midstream and downstream, Bauer Kompressoren has impressed many exploration companies with its seismic survey compressors

These compressor packages produce acoustic waves to generate data about oil and gas reserves.

The solutions mainly include Breathing Air compressors for H2S protection, commercial divers offshore; nitrogen generators for blow out preventers (BOP); air compressors for rig tensioning and motion compensation. Nitrogen generator with high flowrate (Nitromax) is used for critical horizontal drilling using coil tubing.

In the midstream segment, medium pressure compressors are used in surge vessel applications.

Also, LNG carrier vessels are classic examples where nitrogen generators are used for inerting or blanketing applications. For downstream, Bauer’s nitrogen compressors are used for the purging of mechanical seals, and distance pieces of turbo machineries. The Breathing Air packages are certified by major refining companies for their internal fire stations and H2S Protection.

For the last 68 years, Bauer has progressively developed solutions adapting to various industrial demands. Beginning with breathing air compressors that meet European specifications, the company has diversified its businesses catering to special requirements for industrial compressors. NFPA, ASME and ABS are well-versed standards, which are rigorously followed by Bauer’s packaging facility in the USA. Catering to oil and gas industry’s special requirements, explosion proof packages, which are ATEX certified, are also available.

On sustainability, Colin Fountain, managing director of Bauer Kompressoren GCC FZE, said that Bauer has never stepped back when it comes to innovation.

“Thanks to our marketing and product development teams, we are working closely with the end-users to understand technology trends and market demands. Our focus has been to produce compact, user-friendly, completely integrated solutions. This has brought us to the market leader position over many years.”

UNICUS 4i is the most recently developed Breathing Air package, which includes compressor, storage and filling station all together in a compact unit. Its special PLC panel is designed to produce air quality reports directly.
