26 November 2018

At the site of the compressor station of low stages of South-Vatlor field (the BPS area), the integrated tests of the two booster compressor units are completed.

These BCUs are designed for pumping associated petroleum gas of the first separation stage coming from the booster pump stations of the following fields of PJSC Surgutneftegas: South-Vatlor, Vatlor, Suryogan, Verkhnekazymskoye, field named after I.N. Logachev.

The units, 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.

In the course of 72-hour comprehensive testing, the service engineers have checked the operability of process, compressor, and electrical equipment as well as local ACSs. Units were tested in turn; they were worked in routine mode, flawlessly.

All the activities on the BCU commissioning were performed by technical experts 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).
