Jordan Wellhead Compression

Jordan Energy Solutions' Wildcat gas compression systems for wellhead applications are reliable and flexible. Our standard products, or our custom solutions, can match the technology which best suit your exact needs while they boost production, lower operating costs, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and maximize reserve recovery.

Rotary screw gas compression systems for wellhead applications are designed for a broad range of suction and discharge pressures as well as a full range of production volumes. Rotary screw systems have efficient HP/volume ratio and compressor size/flow ratio and have very low maintenance requirements.

Jordan offers a full range of compressors for use at the wellhead and free testing services to allow you to assess which of our products best suit your needs. Testing helps you to identify flow improvement opportunities up front—creating a virtually risk free investment for your organization.

The system we recommend depends on several factors. These factors might include: line pressure, volume, pressure differential, gas cleanliness, gas composition, energy efficiency, and capital cost.
Jordan’s gas compression systems have been used successfully on coal bed methane wells, natural gas wells and oil wells. Our customers have seen production increases between 50% and 200% using our Wildcat wellhead compression units.

Basic Operation

Many wellheads have field pressures lower than the transmission line pressure, preventing the free flow of gas from the well. Some deep wells have well head pressures which can also inhibit the free flow of gas.

A Jordan wellhead compression system provides two basic functions to solve this problem. First, it reduces the pressure at the wellhead to increase well production. Second, the system also compresses the gas to overcome the transmission line pressure. In almost all cases the gas output of the well significantly increases.

Wellhead Compression Features

As gas wells are produced and reservoir pressures decline, wellhead compression is necessary to maintain production. Without effective compression gas rate and velocity will decrease to the point at which liquids cannot be lifted out of the wellbore.
