Ariel Corporation is a major manufacturer of separable reciprocating gas compressors. These compressors are widely used in the global energy industry for extraction, processing, transportation, storage, and distributing natural gas from wells and make it available for the end users. Ariel Corporation is considered as a world-class manufacturer because of their expert design, industry-leading research and development, and quality consumer support.

Ariel natural gas compressors are designed specifically for heavy-duty industrial applications. These compressors are built to last for years and suit a wide range of needs. Natural gas compression is their basic function but they can be divided into three categories based on their use.

Upstream Sector: The upstream sector of the industry includes the processes where the gas is explored, recovered, and produced on oil fields that are underwater or underground. It involves processes such as acid gas injection, enhanced oil recovery (EOR), natural gas gathering, landfill, and air and nitrogen injection.

Midstream Sector: The midstream sector of the oil and gas industry includes processing, storing, marketing, and transportation of crude oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids. It involves processes like pipeline transmission and gas storage injection withdrawal.

Downstream Sector and Refinery: The downstream sector of the industry covers the processes where the refilling and transformation of hydrocarbons into valuable products takes place. The end products are fuels, lubricants, and petrochemicals such as fertilizers, rubbers, and polymers.

All of these industry applications are just a collective overview of several specific applications. The right type of compressor is defined by the particular application and gas type. Every gas has a different molecular structure as well as unique chemical and physical properties. They react differently during the compression process. This is why it becomes critical to choose the right natural gas compressor for the job.

A compressor which is suitable for one application job may not be so for others even if they have similar capacities. This why you will find so many variants of Ariel natural gas compressors. Each is designed to meet the requirements of a specific process.
