By injecting natural gas into an oil reservoir, the reservoir pressure increases to maintain the desired production level.
Reciprocating compressors are commonly used in gas lift applications on wells with heavier oil. Gas is introduced into the oil stream to expand and lighten the oil, causing the oil to flow more easily through the well casing to the surface.
Gas Injection often requires higher final discharge pressures. Forged steel cylinders are applied for the final stage of compression for the higher applied injection pressures.
