Uzbekneftegaz: Repair work carried out to prevent reduction in liquid hydrocarbon production
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- Compressor station - gas pumping units at the Mubarek gas processing plant in the Uzbekneftegaz system are being repaired with efficient use of internal resources.
The main objective of this compressor station is to increase the gas pressure in the device for drying gas using zeolite and transfer it to the device for separating the propane-butane mixture.
Disabling these devices will reduce the production of liquid hydrocarbons.
Taking this into account, and taking into account the need to carry out routine and repair work on a gas pumping unit, at a station in pressure compressors installed on a gas distillation unit in gas turbine engines of the NK-16-18STD brand and compressors of the 295GTs2-270 / 27 brand, 5-64M were carried out by the engineers of the station in accordance with the instructions.
During maintenance and repair work, the inside of the gas turbine engine was washed with softened water using a special detergent. Engine air, fuel and oil filters have been completely replaced.
All the main and auxiliary equipment of the engine and compressor were carefully inspected, and a number of technically complicated calculations and adjustments were made during the repair.
As a result, it was possible to ensure uninterrupted operation of gas pumping units and prevent a decrease in natural gas production.
Also, in order to prevent gas compression during routine maintenance and in the event of an emergency stop of the gas pumping unit, it will be equipped with a backup unit, which will be put into operation in a short time.
The compressor station “DKS-UPPS” in the Mubarek gas processing plant is located in Mubarek district of Kashkadarya region and is capable of distilling 10.8 billion m³ of natural gas per year. In 2012, gas pumping units manufactured at the plants of Sumy NPO OJSC and KMPO OJSC were installed and commissioned at the station.
