E&M Combustion engineering company begins the commissioning of the 28 ATEX burners for Indian refineries of the state-owned Oil &Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), which will operate in the Gujarat Project, in Mehsana. This is the company’s largest onshore asset, with 1,552 operating oil and gas wells, producing 6,000 tons of oil and 530,000 cubic meters of gas per day in this area. The equipment will run on Indirect Bath Heaters, used in various heating applications to reduce oil viscosity and optimize the process fluidity, and will be installed in oil plants close to oil extraction wells.
These combustion equipment are intended to optimize the production capacity of the oil industry undertaken by India. They have been designed and manufactured “to measure” by E&M Combustion, according to the requirements of zone 1, according to the ATEX Directive, ATmosphere EXplosive, which describes the type of equipment allowed to work in an explosive atmosphere zone, aimed at protecting workers from explosion hazards. Zone 1 corresponds to those places where the explosive atmosphere is a mixture consisting of air or dangerous substances in the form of gases, vapors or mist as a normal operation.
The delivery and start-up of these burners continue at the expected rate with the aim of being operational by the beginning of next year 2021, although the effect of the pandemic could slightly delay this schedule. All combustion equipment is manufactured to order, according to the requirements of the function of each burner. Features vary and capacities range from 1.2 MW to 9 MW of power.
