Oil and gas processing

Heat transfer fluid systems are an integral part of the entire system of oil and gas processing. Initial production, transport, refining, and recycling all require the use of heat transfer fluids. Offshore platforms use Therminol liquid-phase heat transfer fluids for facility heating and regeneration of glycols that are used to remove water from the natural gas produced. Refineries use liquid-phase heat transfer fluids to heat reboilers and columns for the distillation of oil and oil-based products. Companies that reprocess and then recycle used lubricating oils use Eastman Therminol® heat transfer fluid in very high-temperature, high-vacuum distillation operations. Pumping stations placed along oil pipelines use heat transfer systems to help control the viscosity of the oil that is moved through the line.
