This March the oil and gas production department of the company “Gazprom dobycha Urengoy” is celebrating the remarkable date – the 10th anniversary of commissioning of compressor stations for utilization of associated petroleum gas. Lately such compressor stations became usual objects, but at that moment it was a breakthrough – the first project of such kind embodied to life on extractive enterprises of “Gazprom”.
Building and commissioning of the new objects, introducing of the equipment innovative, high technological and high automated for its time to active production required the serious level of professionalism and the creative engineering approach to work from the specialists.
Commissioning and operating of the compressor stations allowed solving important production and technological tasks. The information was given to the news agency “Sever-Press” in the service on public relations and communication with mass media of “Gazprom dobycha Urengoy”. In particular, since then gas from the nearby Valanginian deposits stopped being necessary as a working agent for oil and gas wells, which are mainly gas-lift ones, of the oil and gas production department. In addition, the level of utilization of associated petroleum gas is close to the absolute value. In other words, several million cubic meters of fuel passing every day through the compressor stations are not burnt, but used with benefit on production, doing no harm to the environment.
Ten years of exploitation of ones of the youngest production objects in the company is the groundwork for the future and very significant experience, at that, not only for oil workers of the company, but also for their colleagues. Such compressor stations soon will appear obligatorily in extractive fields of Western Siberia – now it is the demand of the new time.
