CHCe - Casing Head Compressor

CHCe – Casing Head Compressor

Innovative & reliablelow-speed compressor for brownfields

When oil wells get old, they often suffer from gas pressure build-up between casing and tubing of the well.

HOERBIGER electrically-driven Casing Head Compressor – CHCe – helps oil producers safely and cost-efficiently release the casing gas from the well and inject it further into the pipe system.

Once installed the Casing Head Compressor brings the following benefits:

  • Increased oil production due to pressure drop in the well
  • Improved pump regime and decreased pump wear due to higher liquid level
  • Decreased number of gas lock issues in pumps
  • No casing gas venting on site

HOERBIGER CHCe features a single-stage, double-acting cylinder, driven by a low-speed & low-power motor, which makes it a perfect fit for brownfield operations.

  • Easy to install and telemetry-ready
