At Verh-Tarskoye field there is commissioned GTPP with capacity of 10.4 MW

29 April 2009

Gas turbine power plant (GTPP) is included in the total energy supply system of Verh-Tarskoye oil field; it provides electricity for industrial facilities of the field, central production facility and rotational camp. The owner of the object is Novosibirskneftegaz OJSC.

GTPP operates in simple cycle. Generating equipment consists of two gas turbine units Centrax of type СX501-КВ7 on the basis of Rolls-Royce turbines with unit capacity of 5.2 MW.

Fuel for power plant is associated petroleum gas, produced at the field. Its purification, compression and supply to the turbines are provided by fuel gas treatment facility (FGTF), consisting of two complexes. FGTF-1 operates in continuous, round-the-clock mode; FGTF-2 is on standby.

At the heart of each FGTF is booster compressor unit of screw type in packaged version. BCU’s with capacity of 2,700 m3 / h each are designed for compression of associated gas from 0.4 MPa to the required operating pressure of 2 MPa.

Compressor units were delivered after the shop tests, in maximum prefabrication level, which allowed to minimize the duration of erection and commissioning works. The BCUs operate in an automatic mode; the units are designed taking into account the environmental conditions and the composition of compressible gas.


REFERENCE. Verh-Tarskoye oil field (VTOF) is located in the northern part of the Novosibirsk region. The field was discovered in 1970; the commercial oil production is begun since 2000. It is considered the largest field in the region.

One of the features of VTOF is large distance from the communications, which poses a major difficulty in the development of hydrocarbon reserves in the Novosibirsk region. Oil produced at VTOF on its properties is close to the brand Brent, characterized by minimal amounts of impurities, it is low-paraffin and sweet crude. During the processing of the oil output of light fractions is to 25% higher than the average for Russia.

The field is developed by Novosibirskneftegaz, which also has a license to develop the Rakitinsky, Mezhovsky and East-Mezhovsky license areas.
