• La Creciente, Colombia Gathering Station

    La Creciente is among the largest Colombian natural gas discoveries in recent years, producing an average 65 MMscfd.

    Pacific Rubiales Energy, the largest independent oil and gas exploration and production company in Colombia, needed a reliable gas compression station to meet distribution requirements for their customer. The equipment design had to accommodate variable operating conditions at the facility and allow for easy expansion to include additional compressors at a later date.

    Pacific Rubiales installed three compressors, all Ariel JGE four-throw units. Two of these compressors are used as operating units, and one as a standby unit capable of immediate startup when needed. This ability to react quickly to changing conditions resulted in superior customer service and satisfaction. Furthermore, this flexible design makes it possible to rapidly install additional equipment to control gas dew point, improve hydrocarbon production and meet gas quality specifications.
