Vectra XL Wellhead Compression System
NASH Vectra XL Wellhead Compression Systems
The NASH Vectra XL series of liquid ring pumps was designed to operate as both a vacuum pump and a compressor with a maximum pressure differential of 30 psig. This allows a negative pressure to be applied to the wells and can: assist in the production of low pressure natural gas and/or remove low pressure gas to aid in the production of oil. The discharge gas can be sent to a high pressure reciprocating compressor for pipeline transport. The systems are built on a platform that can be moved from well to well as needed. These systems are perfect for oil and natural gas wells industries and applications.
Marginal/Stripper wells are wells that produce less than ten barrels of oil or 60,000 cubic feet of natural gas per day. In some applications, the flow of oil and natural gas in impeded by reduced pressure water, or low-pressure natural gas that blankets oil wells.
Key Advantages Over mechanical Vacuum Devices
The advantages of NASH liquid ring technology over mechanical vacuum devices (such as rotary screw and rotary vane) are:
The ability to handle liquid carryover (slugs) without damaging the pump or affecting performance
Minimal maintenance requirements, increasing meantime between failures
Customizable to Your Specific Needs
Whether electric motor or gas engine driven, oil or water sealed, stationary or trailer mounted, Nash can design the right package for your needs.
