    Oil & gas

    Processing margins are very slim in the price-driven commodities market for oil and gas. That makes every penny that can be saved by the efficient use of energy even more valuable.

    In many years of partnership with the industry, the experts from KAEFER have developed a variety of insulation strategies which are precisely tailored to its particular requirements.

    Sectors:

    • Oil and gas production (onshore and offshore)
    • LNG, methanol and ethylene facilities
    • Natural gas tanks and processing facilities
    • Tank farms
    • Refineries and oil mills

    Insulation work, scaffolding and surfacing work, pipe bridge with weatherproofing – gas liquefaction plant Snøhvit, LNG project in Norway. KAEFER carried out insulation work (hot and cold insulation and noise protection) on some 18,000 sq m of piping and 4,000 sq m of equipment. KAEFER technicians also worked in the pressure zone of the complex and in the energy generation sector, insulating a further 2,000 sq m here. The insulation is designed for temperatures as low as -190 °C. The plant operates under very strict conditions for noise control and fire safety.

    Cryogenic media such as liquid natural gas (LNG), methanol or ethylene cannot be stored or transported without the right insulation. Our systems not only withstand the extreme thermal and mechanical pressures; they also limit the evaporation rate and so enable the cost-effective production and storage of the liquefied medium.

    One good example of KAEFER's innovative ideas is the insulation system for natural gas storage caverns. In close cooperation with a well-known insulation manufacturer we created a multi-layer insulation system, which not only prevents condensation but also provides effective noise control to protect employees and the surroundings from the operating noise of pumps, compressors and valves. The system has the same thermal resistance but is less thick and can be precisely adjusted on site to the shape of the machinery. Reference

    Refineries particularly like working with us because we can deploy a large number of qualified employees all at once for shutdowns or else carry out our work during ongoing operations in order to maintain the highest possible uptime. But many customers choose KAEFER because we have very high health and safety standards and are specialists in passive fire protection.

    Noise hood for natural gas compression station in Söhlingen, Lower Saxony- Germany

    Noise hood for natural gas compression station in Söhlingen, Lower Saxony- The outer cladding of the noise hoods consists of specially made façade elements with particularly high thermal resistance. One particular feature of these hoods is the roof elements, which extend across the entire width of the hood and can be removed in one piece, thus enabling all the compressors to be assembled or taken apart if necessary.
    Both noise hoods were fitted with an explosion-proof ventilation system with integrated air-inlet filters, silencers on inlet and outlet ducts, check valves and control valves and high-performance ventilators.
