Adapting Compression Equipment to Accommodate Declining Well Pressures and Ensure Overall Efficiency in Mid/Late Field Life
MetadataShow full item record
Case Study 9: Compression systems are designed for the governing process conditions. In the Oil and Gas industry, these conditions are often dynamic and a function of reservoir or field characteristics which have varying head and flow rate requirements throughout the field life. The main application objective when designing a gas turbine driven centrifugal compression solution to suit these applications, is to maximize efficiency while minimizing the requirement for additional package modifications or major capital works in mid to late field life. This presentation shows how these objectives were achieved for a case example in South Sumatra, Indonesia where an onshore gas field, feeds a localized gas plant that requires front end compression.
