The gas compressor equipment for the CSLS of South-Vatlor field has been shipped and is being transported to the site of operation

22 May 2018

Two booster compressor units (BCU) are designed for pumping associated petroleum gas of the first separation stage coming from the booster pump stations of the following fields of OJSC Surgutneftegas: South-Vatlor, Vatlor, Suryogan, Verkhnekazymskoye, field named after I.N. Logachev.

BCUs, created on the basis of screw oil-filled compressors, will continuously implement a final purification, compression and feeding of APG to the external gas pipeline at pressure of 2.2 MPa. The capacity of each BCU is 10,000 m3 / h.

After successful completion of factory tests, which were implemented under the control of the representatives of customer, the units have been shipped to the site of operation. The equipment is supplied with a high degree of prefabrication and maximum integration of the all assemblies and components on a single frame what further significantly reduces the duration of the construction and mounting works as well as pre-start activities.

Units will be included in the compressor station of low separation stages (CSLS) of South-Vatlor field. All works on the commissioning of this process equipment, including erection supervision, adjustment, individual testing and integrated tests will be performed by specialists of the companies group ENERGAS.

Packaged units in arctic version are designed taking into account the extreme operating conditions (minimum air temperature is minus 55°C, average air temperature of the coldest five-day period is minus 43°C).

BCUs are completely automated; they are equipped with life support systems (heating, ventilation and lighting) and safety systems (fire detection and fire fighting, gas detection, alarm).
