Linde North America will be featuring its nitrogen supply and storage capabilities at the Coiled Tubing & Well Intervention Conference & Exhibition to held in The Woodlands, Texas, from 24-25 March, 2015.
The conference is sponsored by The Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) and the Intervention & Coiled Tubing Association (ICoTA).
“Linde provides high-quality nitrogen to the oil and gas production locations where the nitrogen is used in coil tubing, to displace water and enhance production in hydraulic fracturing and other oilfield operations,” said Robin Watts, Oil & Gas Technology manager-Energy Solutions. As one of the world’s leading industrial gases company, Linde has an expanding network of plants throughout the US, including new air separation units in Lewisville, Arkansas, and La Porte, Texas, where a high concentration of operators and service companies are working.
“These capabilities, coupled with Linde’s decades of experience in developing innovative enhanced recovery solutions, place Linde in a leadership position as a nitrogen supplier to oil and gas producers,” Watts said.
At its booth (#621), Linde will also feature its line of 16,700-gallon nitrogen portable storage vessels (NPSVs) that allow hydraulic fracturing operators and service companies to expand their nitrogen storage capabilities on location. NPSVs are transportable cryogenic vessels that allow Linde to deliver high volume liquid nitrogen directly to production locations. The storage vessels minimize the need for ongoing shuttling of nitrogen from staging areas to production locations, reducing the costs and delays associated with interruptions from frequent deliveries, minimizing disorder near the wellhead and further strengthening the efficiencies achievable with energized fluids.
“Our NPSVs are another demonstration of Linde’s ongoing commitment to be the premier provider of comprehensive cryogenic solutions to the oil and gas industry,” said Brian Kubalik, National Sales manager.“As the industry focuses on reducing the amount of required water and developing completion designs to sustain well production, greater emphasis is being placed on the use of cryogenic gases and associated field support services to achieve these goals.”
