Passed 10-year milestone of uninterrupted operation of the compressor station at the Bystrinskoye field of PJSC Surgutneftegas

25 November 2019

The compressor station (CS) has been operating at the site of preliminary water removal unit No. 2 (PWRU-2) since November 25, 2009. Operation mode of the CS as a part of the facility of oil and gas production complex is nonstop with scheduled shutdowns for maintenance.

The station is designed for final purification and compressing of low-pressure (0.15 MPa) associated petroleum gas and ensures its injection into the transport gas pipeline under pressure of 0.8 MPa.

The uninterrupted operation of CS is insured primarily by the reliability of main equipment which consists of two booster compressor units (CU), supplied and commissioned by ENERGAS Company.

CUs are placed in their own enclosures of arctic type, are fully automated, and equipped with life support systems (heating, ventilation, and lighting) and safety systems (fire detection and fire extinguishing, gas detection, alarm). The capacity of each booster compressor unit is 2,500 m3 / h.

The CS at PWRU-2 of the Bystrinskoye field is one of the "small" compressor stations of the Intra-field Petroleum Gas Gathering and Using Division (UVSING) of Surgutneftegas PJSC. Its launch was part of the company's special program of activities.

Most of these "small" CS are used for offtake of associated gas from the end stages of oil separation, that allows reach the maximum level of the rational use of APG. For this important benchmark, Surgutneftegas has been deservedly leading among Russia's largest extraction companies for a number of years.

REFERENCE. The Bystrinskoye oil and gas condensate field is located in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area. It is multilayer and belongs to the class of large. Deposit was opened in 1964; its name was named after the river Bystrinka. Commercial development began in 1974. It is being developed by the Bystrinskneft Oil and Gas Production Department.
