Gas treatment unit for the upgradable oil treatment plant of Usinsk field underwent factory testing

19 September 2019

In Belgorod, at the production site of the ENERGAS Companies Group, there are completed preliminary tests of a gas treatment unit (GTU) manufactured for operation in structure of the oil treatment plant Usa-Heavy Oil of LUKOIL-Komi LLC. GTU will carry out the functions of gas-control station; the project is being performed as part of the technical re-equipment of the oil treatment plant.



In the course of testing there has been checked the functioning of process, measuring, analytical, and electrical equipment and automated control system. GTU is being prepared for transportation to the site of operation.

Gas treatment unit is supplied with a high degree of prefabrication (coefficient of readiness is 0.98+) what further significantly reduces the duration of the construction and mounting works as well as pre-start activities.

GTU is multifunctional complex intended for the gas purification, preheating, and reducing to stable design parameters before it is fed into a direct oil heating furnaces. The functionality of the process unit also includes flow measurement and gas quality control.

Filtration efficiency is 100% for the liquid fraction and 99.9% for solid particles larger than 2 μm. The gas pressure is reduced from 1.6 ... 2.5 MPa to 0.6 MPa. The estimated outlet gas temperature is +25°C. The maximum capacity of the unit is 21,360 nm3 / h.

REFERENCE. The commissioning in 2009 of the oil treatment plant Usa-Heavy Oil opened a new page in the history of LUKOIL-Komi LLC. This OTP has become the largest launch facility for the company since its creation. The design capacity of the plant is about 11 million cubic meters of liquid fraction and 2 million tons of oil per year, and the tank battery is about 32 thousand cubic meters.

Usa-Heavy Oil is considered unique in Russia – this is the first facility of such capacity, designed to treatment highly viscous "black gold". The project completed the separation of the flows of "light" and "heavy" oil at the Usinsk field. With the launch of the OTP, the oil gathering system of this production field was also reconstructed.
