Temperature maintenance is critical to upstream, midstream and downstream processes in the oil and gas industry and electrical heat tracing is applied to pipes and pipelines, pumps, storage facilities and instruments. The task is to ensure an accurate and reliable maintenance of different process temperatures at every point of the production line.
Upstream applications include underground and underwater exploration for crude oil and natural gas fields, drilling exploratory wells and subsequently drilling and operating the wells that bring oil or gas to the surface. Midstream activities involve processing, storing and transporting oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids. Upstream applications involve refining, processing, purifying and distribution of derivative oil and gas products.
Our expertise in electric heat tracing covers all three main application areas, with a particular focus on project management, as well as innovative and clever ideas. Our complete range of products enables us to find the optimal solution for your requirements.
In order to liquefy natural gas, it is cooled down to -160 °C. The result is LNG. Due to the extreme temperatures during storage, it is necessary to protect the foundation of the tanks with electrical trace heating.
