In the oil and gas industry, "midstream" refers to the activities involved in the transportation, storage, and processing of oil and natural gas between the wellhead and the end user. Midstream equipment refers to the various types of equipment and machinery used in these activities. This can include:
- Pipelines: These are used to transport oil and natural gas from the wellhead to processing facilities, refineries, and end-users.
- Storage tanks: These are used to store oil and natural gas before it is transported to end-users or refineries.
- Compression equipment: This includes compressors and pumps used to move oil and natural gas through pipelines and increase pressure to maintain flow.
- Processing equipment: This includes equipment used to process and treat oil and natural gas, such as separators, dehydrators, and natural gas processing plants.
- Terminal equipment: This includes equipment used to load and unload oil and natural gas from tankers, railcars, and trucks at terminals and transfer points.
- Measurement equipment: This includes equipment used to measure the flow, temperature, and pressure of oil and natural gas in pipelines and storage tanks.
- Natural Gas processing equipment: This includes equipment used to remove impurities such as water, carbon dioxide, and sulfur compounds from natural gas before it is transported to end-users.
Midstream equipment is designed to handle large volumes of oil and natural gas and must be able to operate safely and efficiently over long periods of time. The cost of midstream equipment can be high, but they are essential for the successful transportation, storage, and processing of oil and gas.
