The low-pressure gas compressor units have passed the 10-year milestone of reliable operation at the facilities of Komsomolskneft OGPD

6 January 2021

Late December 2010 at two booster pump stations (BPS) and oil processing and pumping shop (OPPS) of the oil and gas production department Komsomolskneft (Surgutneftegas PJSC) there were commissioned booster compressor stations to pumping associated gas of low pressure.

As a part of these BCS there are operate seven compressor units (CU) with capacity of 1,000 m3 / h each. Two CUs are at the BPS-1, three CUs are at BPS-2, another two CUs are at the OPPS site. Booster pump stations are located at the Konitlor oil field; OPPS area belongs to the Fedorovskoye oil and gas field.

Units carry out final purification and compressing associated gas coming from the end oil separation stage and injection it into transport gas pipeline under pressure of 0.8 MPa.

Project’s feature is inlet gas pressure close to vacuum (0...0.09 MPa). It was taken into account at the design and production stages; some elements of the CUs were upgraded (for example, inlet and outlet valves), as well as it was installed additional equipment – system of oxygen detection in gas flow.

Compressor units correspond to the climatic conditions of Western Siberia and operational requirements adopted at the facilities of Surgutneftegas PJSC. Supply and launch of these gas-booster units were performed by the company ENERGAS.

At present, there are a total of 85 ENERGAS process units operating at Surgutneftegas facilities.
