Nitrogen Generation Pipeline Services

We are highly experienced in providing onsite N2 generation for various oil and gas activities in the upstream, midstream, and downstream sectors. Nitrogen plays a vital role in the oil and gas industry for its non-combustive and non-toxic properties. From the initial drilling of the well to the transfer of the finished product, we supply dependable onsite nitrogen services to keep your operations running smoothly and safely.

Upstream

We service upstream oil and gas activities to help make operations safer, maximize oil and gas recovery, and increase efficiency. We service coiled tubing, under-balanced drilling, and gas lifting safely and efficiently.

Midstream

Our team supplies on demand N2 generation that meet regulatory requirements for the midstream sector. We offer nitrogen inerting, a vital process for pressure transfer between storage vessels and pipeline purging and drying where N2 is required.

Downstream

We aim to help downstream clients reduce operational costs without compromising quality or safety. We offer a variety of nitrogen services with quicker turnaround time.


Nitrogen Pigging

It’s common for pipelines to experience flow issues over the course of its life, typically due to debris and deposit. To remedy this issue, pipeline inspection tools or Inline inspection tools ILI (referred to as pigs) are used to perform maintenance without interrupting product flowing through the pipeline. The use of onsite nitrogen generation to move ‘pigs’ through the pipeline is preferred for its purity rate and consistent flow.

Nitrogen pigging displaces oxygen in the pipeline and leaves them inert and ready for maintenance. Nitrogen displacement is crucial during maintenance and remedial treatments to prevent explosions and break the hazardous “fire triangle”. To do this effectively and safely, the flow of Nitrogen gas to displace hydrocarbons in the pipeline must have a high purity rate and flow to push the pigs at desired speeds.

At Canadian Nitrogen Services, our onsite nitrogen generators can achieve this with our fully integrated fleet of vehicles delivering nitrogen when and where you need it quickly. Onsite nitrogen generation reduces costs by eliminating the logistical challenges of supplying bulk liquid nitrogen and is an environmentally friendly solution.
