The oil and gas sector supplies the fuels and lubricants used in everyday life. Extraction and processing of the raw materials often occur under rough conditions, particularly if they take place in extreme climate zones or offshore. This calls for particularly reliable and corrosion-resistant instruments with a long service life. The products by SAMSON are perfectly tailored to these requirements.

Oil & Gas
Fields of applications
One of the first steps in a natural gas treatment plant or refinery is the removal of acid gas, also known as sweetening. The most common method of sweetening is amine gas treatment.
Compressor anti-surge protection is vital for all centrifugal and axial compressors.
Gases such as helium, nitrogen, and oxygen are often super-cooled and changed to a liquid state. These cryogenic fluids have many uses in industrial applications.
FSRU's (Floating Storage and Regasification Unit)
An FSRU is the vital component required to transport and transfer Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) through the oceanic channels.
JT (Joule-Thomson) Valves
The Joule–Thomson effect describes the temperature change of a gas or liquid when it is forced through a valve, while kept insulated.
LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas)
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas that has been converted to liquid form for ease of storage or transport.
The liquefaction process involves removal of certain components, it is then condensed into a liquid at close to atmospheric pressure by cooling it to approximately −162 °C (−260 °F).
LNG Regasification and Storage
Regasification is a process of converting LNG back to natural gas at atmospheric temperature. LNG gasification plants can be located on land or floating barges.
Natural Gas Processing
A complex industrial process designed to clean raw natural gas by separating impurities and various non-methane hydrocarbons and fluids.
Offshore - FPSO, FLNG, FSRU, LPG ships, Platforms
An offshore platform is a large structure with facilities to drill wells, extract and process oil and natural gas.
Oxygen plays a critical role in space, aircraft, medical, underwater diving and many industrial applications.
Pressure swing adsorption is an economic and reliable method for separating a wide range of process gases and bringing them to a very high purity level.
Thanks to its favorable thermodynamic properties and abundant availability, steam is used in just about every industry in countless applications across the globe.
Solutions for rough environments
Our control equipment is installed in upstream and downstream processes. We can supply modular control valves in all pressure ratings, materials and styles at short notice. The stainless steel versions of our valves, actuators and positioner housings also withstand the severest offshore conditions. In addition, highly resistant materials are available for installation on FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading) units or drilling rigs. For LNG (liquefied natural gas) applications on shore and on tankers, we offer special cryogenic equipment to meet all safety requirements.
Innovative valve accessories, such as our smart positioners for integral attachment, ensure the safe exchange of data in the process and allow for predictive maintenance. We develop and produce highly specialized valve series for unusual control tasks. In addition, we provide tailored valves to meet the specific requirements defined by the customer.
