Blackmer’s deep oil and gas industry experience has led to its solid reputation for product innovation, quality, and most critical to Wellhead Operators – reliability – especially in rugged and remote unmanned locations.  These professionals rely on Blackmer compressors to perform without fail at the wellhead and storage tank batteries for an array of critical applications.

Annulus Reduction 

Blackmer compressors reduce wellhead gas pressure improving oil flownto underground formations for more efficient oil production enhancement.

Vapor Control

The wellhead and tank batteries are the two major sources of fugitive methane emissions. Common air compressors lack critical seals to prevent gas leakage and  crankcase oil dilution.  Condensate can form in the compressor, which will contaminate crankcase oil. Condensate will break down the oil acting like a solvent, stripping bearings of critical lubrication.  The result is damaging heat, friction, and equipment damage or breakdown.  Blackmer compressors are specially designed to capture and control wellhead gases, and prevent gas leakage and oil contamination.

Vapor Recovery

Increasingly stringent state and federal clean air rules are promoting the reduction and elimination of gas venting and flaring of fugitive gas emissions.  Blackmer  compressors are unsurpassed in reducing emissions and the recovery of saleable wellhead gas, thus protecting the environment, supporting regulatory compliance and improving the bottom line.

Product Transfer

Blackmer compressors move wellhead and tank battery vapors into low- to medium-pressure pipelines where it can be further processed downstream at a gas processing station.  Wellhead operators attest to the importance of equipment reliability and uptime performance, and understand the risks and downtime costs of relying upon less capable, less durable air compressors. They avoid the unnecessary expense of daily and weekly oil changes, and the frequent replacement of these less durable compressors. They recognize the Blackmer product outlasts and outperforms, requiring only routine maintenance. Its ability to remain on 24/7/365  continuous duty for the long haul is testimony to Blackmer reliability and bottom line results.
