ENERGAS Company was highly appreciated by KMPO OJSC for its participation in the project of construction of the BCS "Alan" in Uzbekistan

16 February 2015

In the letter of the Kazan Motor-Building Production Association (KMPO) there is noted that ENERGAS specialists have done a great deal of work on designing, manufacturing and supplying a system for treatment of fuel and starting gas designed for use as part of a booster compressor station at the Alan field in Uzbekistan.

Particular emphasis is placed on the fact that ENERGAS successfully coped with the task in the shortest period – three months. Scrupulous compliance with strict requirements for production and delivery terms, as well as complete information and technical support for each stage of the contract are important advantages of the company in the implementation of joint projects.

KMPO accentuates that the experience of joint effective work allows us to recommend ENERGAS as a reliable and qualified partner in the future supply of gas treatment equipment.



Booster compressor station (BCS) "Alan" is being constructed in the framework of the development of same-name gas field in southern Uzbekistan. Project's customer is the company Uzbekneftegaz. Designer is LLC EAST-WEST Engineering (Tashkent). Construction is performed by OJSC KMPO.

BCS site is located near the CGTP "Alan" (at the CGTP gas inlet). In conditions of field depletion compressor station is designed to maintain the pressure of low-sulfur feed gas at the inlet to the low-temperature separation unit – at a level ensuring normal operation of turbo-expanders.

The project helps to increase the production of residual gas and condensate reserves in the field and to support the nominal conditions of gas processing before it is fed to the Mubarek Gas Processing Plant (MGPP).

Compressor station consists of two turbo-compressor gas-pumping units GPU-16 "Volga". GPU are made on the basis of centrifugal compressors 244GTS2-220/20.5-44M12456 and 204GTS2-100/44-75M1245; as actuators there are used gas-turbine engines NK-16-18ST manufactured by KMPO. Capacity of the station will be 5 billion m3 / year.

BCS is equipped with fuel and starting gas treatment system GS-FHP-400/56 manufactured by LLC BelgorodENERGAS (part of ENERGAS Group). Gas treatment system is a processing unit of maximum factory-readiness made on single (open) frame. The equipment includes:

– High-efficiency inlet filtration module with two-stage coalescing filters-separators. The degree of gas purification from solids and condensed moisture (larger than 10 microns) is 99.98%;

– Automatic condensate drainage system with drainage tank;

– Electric heaters. They implement heating the purified gas to the project parameters (55°C). For smooth power adjustment (or blocking heating in emergency situations), it comes complete with control cabinet, equipped with an interface for communication with external APCS;

– Starting gas purge line consisting of two lines (operating and standby). Gas pressure is reduced from 5.6 MPa to the level of 0.4…0.6 MPa;

– Bilinear purge line of fuel gas. Outlet pressure is 2.3...2.5 MPa.

Capacity of gas treatment system is 14,400...17,600 m3 / h. The unit is designed to accommodate a wide ambient temperature range (-28...+49°C). Assigned resource (service life) is 25 years.

REFERENCE. The Alan field is operated since the second half of the 1970s. Capacities of NHC Uzbekneftegaz allow to provide annual production of natural gas in the amount of about 70 billion m3 and production of liquid hydrocarbons – 8 million tons.

REFERENCE. OJSC KMPO mass produces gas turbine engines and equipment on their basis for the pumping and distribution of natural gas. In particular, gas-pumping unit GPU-16 "Volga" – is a highly efficient and reliable unit of the new generation, created on the basis of the model range engines KMPO. GPU-16 "Volga" is designed for the installation of engines NK-38ST, NK-16-18ST or DG-90P2. It is available in packaged and hangar design with capacity of 16 and 18 MW.
