Oil & Gas and nitrogen generation

In the Oil & Gas industry, substituting oxygen with nitrogen is the most widely used method to reduce the risk of explosion and fire on the one hand, and to support the extraction process on the other.

This highly specific market requires equipment to be entirely adapted, due to the conditions of use of the generator, so that it complies with legislative and technical constraints or with climatic conditions and specific risks.

Since 1988 ABSOGER has manufactured over 1,200 nitrogen generators under the CARBOTRADE brand, which are used for various applications in a number of industrial sectors. Today, with over 25 years of experience and a large network of partners, CARBOTRADE is a reference in the field and has installations on every continent.

Our equipment is custom designed and developed to meet our clients’ most specific needs.
