On the Nakhodka field (Yamal) LLC "LUKOIL-Western Siberia" (100% subsidiary of OAO "LUKOIL") began construction of a booster compressor station (BCS). Conducted dumping sites, delivery of necessary construction materials, pumping units, other processing equipment. A breakdown of pile fields are planning to start in April. The station will be installed three gas compressor unit capacity of 18 MW each. In the future, as the fall of the reservoir pressure at the field, they will bring the number to six.
BCS performance will equal the volume of gas production in the field of Nakhodka — 8.4 billion cubic meters of crude oil a year. Commissioning is scheduled for the third quarter of 2014.
In the construction of BAC will use innovative technology. In particular, the bearing oil in the centrifugal compressor to replace magnetic. The benefits of the introduction of such innovations are significant. The so-called levitation, when the rotor is in the air due to the electromagnetic radiation, eliminates friction bearings, which reduces the amount of energy consumed by a gas turbine engine. In addition, it is also an ecological component — magnetic bearings, thanks to all of the same levitation, do not need lubrication.
Station — an important link in the process chain. Collecting the gas well pads and boosting it up to the required parameters before supplying to install a comprehensive training (GPP), the DCS will provide training materials to the requirements of STO Gazprom 089-2010, and provide maintenance of production at the project level.
