In Surgut, a low pressure gas compressor unit was put into operation at the site of transfer and acceptance point

1 February 2018

In Surgut, a low pressure gas compressor unit is commissioned at the transfer and acceptance point (TAP) of Surgutneftegas PJSC.

Since the end of 2010, this CU was successfully functioned within the compressor station of the Konitlor field (the BPS-2 area) of the Komsomolskneft oil and gas production department, where it carried out additional treatment, compression and injection of low-pressure associated gas into the transport pipeline. In December 2017, the CU was put out of the operation and relocated to the other facility.

At the TAP, the unit performs similar functions.



Project’s feature is inlet gas pressure close to vacuum (0...0.09 MPa). It was taken into account at the design and production stages; some elements of the CU were upgraded (for example, inlet and outlet valves), as well as it was installed additional equipment – system of oxygen detection in gas flow.

Compressor unit corresponds to the climatic conditions of Western Siberia and operational requirements adopted at the facilities of Surgutneftegas.
