Midstream Oil & Gas Assets

Midstream Oil & Gas Assets Gallery contains oil & gas gathering and refining assets from basins throughout the United States. The images are primarily produced as large format fine art for the midstream oil & gas industry.  Prints are available up to 96 inches wide with fine art murals available up to 60 feet wide. Most of my midstream oil & gas photography is up to 20 times the resolution of traditional commercial photography.  A fine art mural differers from a normal mural in that the image is intended to be viewed from only a few feet away. Pixel counts well into the billions mean that even the finest details are evident in the mural in the same way that a piece of fine art is expected to be of the highest quality.  The world's finest lenses have been used to achieve a level of focus and sharpness that can only be appreciated in a large print.

Separators And Battery At Sunset (2018)

Separators And Battery At Sunset  was photographed in the central Permian Basin on a Battery and separator complex gathering oil & gas from several San Andres horizontal wells.  The image is a 2:1 panorama composited from 63 high resolution images taken with the world's sharpest 55mm lens. The image is suitable for a large fine art mural or extraordinarily detailed fine art prints from 12x24' to 40x80".  Fine art oil & gas photography of production and midstream assets by Robert D.

Baker Downhole Pumps In Sepia (2017)

Baker Downhole Pumps In Sepia features an SWD photographed in the Delaware Basin after a heavy rain storm. This is an extraordinarily detailed image consisting of 63 high resolution images composited together. The sepia or brown toning in this black & white image matches dark wood or leather in an office decor perfectly.  See the Midstream or Sepia Collection gallery for other examples of oil & gas assets photographed with this sepia toning.  Fine art oil & gas photography by Robert D.

Holding On To Summer (2017)

Holding On To Summer features an SWD photographed against a beautiful turbulent sunset in the central Delaware Basin of Western Texas. My favorite time of year to photograph the Delaware is during the rainy season from June through October. With the right light an ordinary oilfield asset such as this one can be turned into a work of art. This image is actually a composite of 63 high resolution images into one panorama that is up to 16 times the resolution of traditional professional photography. The bump in resolution and detail allows the image to be used as a fine art wall mural as large as 20x40 feet.  The image can also be reproduced as a fine art print with a sense of depth and detail that few people will ever see. Fine art prints on canvas or smooth water color paper are available from 12x24" to 40x80".  Going into 2018 I will be photographing  water infrastructure and Midstream oil & gas assets throughout the Delaware Basin. Commissioned projects are available.

Of Man And Nature

Natural gas gathering assets and cows on a high mesa compressed against The Wind River Range in early Summer 2014.  This image was photographed to be used as a very large scale mural up to 20x60 feet. The high level of detail also makes for an incredible fine art print.  The image is composed of 1.24 billion pixels and was photographed at 600mm with a camera mounted in an enclosure to isolate it from the wind.  Oil & Gas Photography for fine art by Robert D.

Last Light Of Day

Last Light Of Day features natural gas gathering assets at twilight on a cold clear evening in the mountains of far Western Texas.  Culberson County Texas continues to provide some of the best horizontal gas plays as evidenced by continued drilling and the build out of midstream facilities such as this one.  The image is a high resolution fifty megapixel photograph.  A perspective control lens normally used for architectural subjects allows all points near to far to be in perfect focus.  Fine Art Oil & Gas Photography By Robert D.
