Customized solutions for the highest demands

Upstream
The oil and gas industry will remain the motor of the global economy for decades to come. But the industry also has to fundamentally face new challenges in order to be able to efficiently tap new resources in the future.

This certainly includes oil fields with heavy oil and oil fields in deep-sea regions as well as oil and gas fields located in areas that are difficult to develop. Fields that have already been developed offer new opportunities, such as the processes of EOR (Enhanced Oil Recovery) or oil fields with extra-heavy crude oil, for example in Kuwait, Russia, South America and Canada. 

In order to make these resources available to the world market efficiently and in an environmentally friendly manner in the future, efficient and resource-saving technologies are required. With the supply of plug and play processing systems which comply with even the most stringent environmental requirements, GEA's mechanical separation solutions plays a decisive role here. They handle continuous liquid-liquid-solids separation in a wide range of applications and capacities. The high-performance disk-stack centrifuges are specifically designed to cope with the needs and circumstances in various process setups in on- and offshore installations for oil and gas production.
