NETZSCH pumps conveys extremely difficult media to oil and gas fields

Despite all efforts to promote renewable energies, global demand for crude oil and natural gas has continued unabated. Prices are rising and interest in opening up new sources, including unconventional sources, is rising with them. Methane from coal seams and highly viscous oil at more than 10,000 mPas are already of commercial interest, but are just as complicated to extract as oil sand mixtures from the Sudanese desert. Conveying systems have to be adapted to the media and the environment if production is to be efficient under such conditions.
