New Mobile Wellhead Compressor in the Netherlands
In order to extend the lifetime of a “nearly depleted” gas well, Eltacon has delivered a Mobile WellHead Compressor.
The MWHC will boost the gas coming from the well to a suitable pressure for transportation and further processing. Using an oil injected screw compressor with a “wide range” capacity control, the package is suitable for lowering the well pressure down to 1 barg and therefore extending the total lifetime of the well. After depletion, the unit can be moved to other locations due to its high flexibility in operating parameters.
Eltacon manufactured the first MWHC for gas wells in Siberia in 2010, the MWHC has proven its value and capability over the last years and is now used on several sites in The Netherlands as well.
Improvements from the pilot unit include an integrated high efficiency separation section including slug catchers to be able to cope with condensate and salt. With this additional section as part of the unit, the MWHC can run without upstream filtration systems.
