Gas compressor station project No 1

Client: SOCAR

Location: Gunashli Deep Sea Water Platform No 4 (offshore)

Scope of work: Engineering, procurement, construction, transportation, site installation (onshore), offshore installation, start-up and commissioning.

General information: The gas compressor station is designed to collect low pressure gases and transport it to suction of BCS-2 at Oil Rocks. The completed project consists of establishment of two Siemens SGT400 twin shaft gas turbine compressor drivers, two Siemens STC-SH driven units gas compressors and two Siemens STC-SV driven units gas compressors.

Capacity of compressors: Maximum one compressor capacity - 2 million m3/day (20°C and 1 ATM); maximum two compressors capacity - 4 million m3/day (20°C and 1 ATM).

Completion date: May 2012
