Upstream Oil and Gas


When the energy production environment presents complex challenges, filtration and separation systems from Parker present the solution. In today’s demanding energy market, keeping the pipelines full is not just an objective – it’s an absolute necessity. Parker offers innovative and site-specific filtration and separation solutions that help ensure integrity and purity along the entire production continuum.



Parker brings filtration innovation to equipment used in planning, drilling, completion, production and abandonment of an oil well. From exploration, drilling and formation assessments to well construction and completion, Parker filters enhance productivity throughout the life of the field. Parker solutions are engineered to keep your equipment running optimally, safely, and in an environmentally considerate manner.



From jack-up barges to deepwater mobile offshore drilling units – semi-submersibles and drillships – Parker compressed air and gas treatment products protect your equipment, your processes, and your crew. With offshore drilling, key functions include drilling, preparing water or gas for injection into the reservoir, processing the oil and gas before sending it ashore and cleaning the produced water for disposal at sea. Parker air and gas filtration, drying, and process chiller products ensure that these important functions are ongoing, even under harsh conditions. Parker also protects the most important asset – your crew members – by providing a constant supply of clean breathing air.


After oil and gas wells are drilled, completed, and placed into initial (primary) production, only about 12-15% of the original oil in place is typically recovered. This is due to the continually decreasing drive pressure of the well. Techniques such as stimulation and gas lift are sometimes used to assist and sustain the initial drive.


Secondary recovery methods involving water flooding or natural gas re-injection can be utilized to recover another 15-20%. Therefore, as much as 65-70% of the oil still remains and is difficult to recover. Tertiary techniques involving either CO2 or N2 injection can be used to increase the well pressure and promote additional recover. In some instances a polymer foam is injected into the well to aid recovery. These foams can be blanketed and injected with nitrogen and it has been found that less foam needs to be used with the use of nitrogen.
