Testing of the main gas pumping unit is completed on the enterprise “Kazankompressormash”. It was manufactured according to the order of the company “NOVATEK” for the technology of production of liquefied natural gas “Arctic Cascade”. The aggregate is purposed for exploitation in the complex on liquefying of natural gas of the fourth stage of the project “Yamal LNG”. This information was given on the internet portal of the fuel and energy community “Energyland.info”.
The gas pumping unit was designed in “NIIturbokompressor n.a. V. B. Shnepp”. It is an integrated compressor unit consisting of three centrifugal compressors designed to compress three technological streams (methane, nitrogen and ethane). All three compressors work from one gas turbine drive of Russian production with the capacity of 25 megawatt, through a multi-shaft multiplier, with one input and three output shafts. In this case, one of the compressors is designed and manufactured according to the scheme of a multi-shaft compressor with five compression housings.
This technical solution implemented for the first time in the world allows reducing mutual thermodynamic effect of compression stages and considerably reducing overall dimensions and weight of the entire compressor system of the LNG production complex. The whole equipment as part of the gas pumping unit is designed and manufactured in accordance with the requirements of API standards and is equipped with the local automated control system.
Designing, manufacturing and subsequent complete delivering of the main gas pumping unit by “Kazankompressormash” is the result of active participation of HMS Group in programs on import substitution and development of domestic technological base of Russian LNG-projects.
