By Sarah Ann McCay27 March 2012
Atlas Copco Specialty Rental has delivered its first 150 bar booster in Asia. The unit has been delivered to the PT McDermott fabrication yard in Batam, Indonesia for pressure testing piping modules bound for Chevron Australia's Gorgon Project in Western Australia.
The compressor and generator specialist has installed two class zero certified 100% oil-free PNS1250 air compressors, dryers and manifolds plus the 150 bar B18-62/2250 2-stage reciprocating-type booster at the Batam site.
The Swedish company recently added the Atlas Copco B18-62/2250 booster to its rental fleet. The booster is a two-stage, reciprocating-type compressor and provides a suction pressure of 350 psi, 24 bar and a maximum discharge pressure of 2250 psi, 155 bar to ensure a maximum pressure of 2185 cfm, 62 m3/min.
PT McDermott will utilize the booster on a 12-month rental contract for 2000 psi, 150 bar pressure testing LNG modules. Once tested, the LNG train modules, are shipped to Chevron Australia's Gorgon Project in Barrow Island, Western Australia; a three-train LNG production facility.
