Compressor units by Kazancompressormash put into operation at the site of NOVATEK

Two centrifugal compressor units manufactured by Kazancompressormash (HMS Group) have been successfully tested and put into operation at the booster compressor station of NOVATEK-Yurkharovneftegaz.

53GC2-188/10-87 compressor units with 2.822 million Nm³/day unit capacity and 87 bar discharge pressure are designed to operate as a part of gas compression systems GPA-16 NK-03N «Ural» for the compression of associated petroleum gas. The most advanced technical solutions were used for the design and manufacture of the compressors. Compressors are intended to operate using one or two compression stages, which ensures reliable operation of the compressor system in all operation modes. Application of dry gas seals eliminates leaking of the working gas. Parallel arrangement of casings and three-shaft speed-increasing gear with two output shafts are applied. Among advantages of this arrangement are small size, flexible scheme of compressor units operation (one compressor casing operates within the first years, the following years may involve sequential operation of two compressor casings), as well as high energy efficiency of the system.

Under the project of booster compressor station construction at the Yurkharovskoye field Kazancompressormash has designed, manufactured and supplied three compressor units. Currently, commissioning works for the third compressor block are being carried out at the site.

The HMS Group is one of the leading in Russia and the CIS manufacturer of pumps, compressors and skid-mounted oilfield equipment for oil & gas, nuclear and thermal energy, and water supply & sewage disposal sector, as well as provider of integrated solutions. The HMS Group’s global depositary receipts (“GDRs”) are listed under the symbol “HMSG” on the London Stock Exchange.
