The compressor station was expanded with one 2500hp electric drive reciprocating compressor. This compressor increased the facility through-put from 30 MMSCFD to 40 MMSCFD.
Auxiliary systems of H2S scavenger injections were added and tied into the existing programmable logic controller (PLC) system. A new variable frequency drive was installed and the site’s incoming power was upgraded by adding a 14.4KV transformer.
In addition, the existing building had to be modified, as the new compressor footprint was significantly larger than the existing 1500hp electric drive compressors. This required our team to expand the building, increasing its size to accommodate the new compressor.
