Alex Wong Writing for Schnabel Engineering On bringing revolutionary improvements in the oil and gas industry with its midstream operations.

Clifton Park, Nov. 23, 2021 ( – Petroleum Engineering is a critical engineering field engaged in the production of hydrocarbons from natural gas or crude oil. Exploration and production are handled by companies such as Schnabel Engineering, which has successfully completed many projects in the upstream sector. With the help of world-class petroleum engineers and geoscientists, the company works to maximize the economic recovery of hydrocarbons from underground reservoirs. The company’s experienced petroleum geologists and geophysicists study the hydrocarbon reservoir rock, and the petroleum engineers estimate the recoverable volume of this resource with their extensive knowledge of the physical behavior of oil, water and gas in porous rock at extremely high pressures.

An ideal petroleum engineer must have a good knowledge of various disciplines such as petroleum geology, drilling, reservoir engineering, formation assessment, geophysics, petroleum production engineering, wellbore engineering, artificial lifting systems and more. The company employs the best physicists, mechanical engineers, chemical engineers and mining engineers. Schnabel Engineering’s geologists and petroleum engineers work together to find out how a deposit was developed and depleted. Petroleum is a complex mixture of high molecular weight hydrocarbons and other organic compounds formed from the carbon-rich remains of ancient plankton after exposure to immense heat and pressure for hundreds of millions of years. It became covered in mud and silt and sank into the earth, eventually turning into underground oil deposits.

The entire world economy is heavily dependent on the oil and gas industry. Schnabel Engineering was involved in advising on landslide containment for the construction of a 303 mile natural gas pipeline. The midstream company worked with the engineers and site managers on site and helped them with mitigation proposals. They created drawings for the laying of the sewer and developed further measures to ensure the stability of the pipeline. The company was also involved in the Appalachia natural gas pipeline. The pipeline extends 32 miles between Tazewell County and Marion, Virginia. They did lots of 2D resistivity measurements to get the visual image of the sinkholes along the pipeline including the river crossing. While the natural gas company opted for Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD), Schnabel recommended conventional trenching methods for two of the stream crossings because the risk was high.

As one of the most efficient midstream companies in the US today, Schnabel Engineering uses narrow and low pressure pipelines to connect oil and gas wells to larger long-haul pipelines or processing facilities. After extracting oil and gas, the company processes and refines the crude oil and gas into effective, marketable products. They produce kerosene, gasoline, diesel oil, heating oil and more from crude oil. The company took advantage of the latest technologies in catalytic reforming, catalytic cracking, alkylation, distillation, vacuum distillation, isomerization and hydrotreating. Your natural gas processing consists of compression, amine treatment, glycol dehydration, fractionation, separation of pipeline grade natural gas and a stream of mixed natural gas liquids, and more.

The company offers pipeline transportation of oil and gas to the processing facilities. Schnabel Engineering offers storage facilities at terminals in the entire oil and gas distribution systems. They store the petroleum products in storage tanks and natural gas in underground facilities. The organization is equipped with the best and latest technologies during all midstream processes.

Schnabel Engineering specializes in midstream operations as well as geotechnical, dam and tunneling services in the United States and in more than 150 countries. To learn more about their services, visit their website at
