The Challenge

Controlling produced product temperatures

Situated in the heart of the Permian Basin in New Mexico, the subsidiary of a leading oil and gas producer operates a massive central gathering facility, capable of processing a staggering 250,000 barrels of oil per day.

The company's primary challenge was regulating oil temperatures before the storage phase, preventing emissions due to oil being too hot before it is stored.

This requirement was not just seasonal but rather a constant precise due to the presence of paraffin, which required the oil to be heated. An efficient cooling solution was needed, so the company turned to Aggreko.
