The research and production company Grasys has completed the pre-commissioning works on the membrane nitrogen station at the Surgut Condensate Stabilization Plant owned by the Gazprom group in the Khanty-Mansi autonomous district.
Grasys nitrogen station is located at the site of the low-pressure off-gases recovery unit of the Surgut CSP and designed for continuous nitrogen production on a daily basis. The nitrogen produced by the station is supplied to the turbine compressor for pumping the gas further to the dry seals.
The equipment provided by Grasys was specially outfitted with the automatic systems for condensate discharge outside the station and maintenance of the preset pressure in the nitrogen receiver. For operation under the harsh climatic conditions of the Western Siberia, the advanced automatic ventilation systems were designed. The station does not require permanent attendance by the operating personnel.
According to the Gazprom OJSC press-service, the v. Chernomyrdin Surgut CSP is currently undergoing a massive expansion and reconstruction process. By 2015, Gazprom anticipates the plant upgrading ensuring the annual capacity of 12 million cubic meters.
