Benefits of Natural Gas Compression

Compression allows a well to produce higher volumes of gas, generating higher revenues. In some cases, compression is required for a well to produce at all.

As seen on the following incremental cash flow graph, wells with compression delivering more than 15 MCFD add net dollars to your profitability.

This graph demonstrates the additional net revenues received when compression is added. Net Revenues are defined as gross sales less operating expenses, which include royalties, taxes, pumper fees, administrative fees, and compression costs.

The excess of the revenues generated from increased gas production volumes over the costs of compression are profit for your company.

The chart does not include increased oil production revenues which often accompany the gas production as compression can reduce bottom hole pressures which allow more oil to flow into the well bore. An increase of as little as one barrel per day at $70 can generally net revenue equal to the cost of compression rental.

To find out more about the costs of compression, visit the Compression Consultation page and send us the information needed to determine your compression requirements.
