Off-gas compressor for German offshore oil platform.
While drilling for oil, accumulated off-gas from the oil condensate is generally flared. Using an Eltacon off-gas compressor enables to re-use this gas for other applications, herewith reducing the impact on the environment.
For an offshore oil platform in the North-sea on the German coast Eltacon has supplied an off-gas booster compressor. The unit includes pre-filtration of the gas to eliminate free water from the low pressure gas feed line. After compression the gas is cooled to eliminate condensated hydrocarbons and reheated again to avoid condensation downstream the compressor unit. The boosted off-gas is used as fuel gas for a Gas Turbine
The complete unit is assembled in a container sized skid frame for easy transportation and installation on site. The frame has been tested and certified for offshore handling. Modifications are made to the frame enclosure to cope with the sound emissions and therefore acts as a sound silencing enclosure as well.
Eltacon has delivered and commissioned the unit, including site personnel training for proper operation of the unit.
