Compression part of Pipestone Processing Facility
Siemens Energy has finished commissioning one feed and sales gas train and one refrigeration compression train for the Pipestone Processing Facility in Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada. The Pipestone Processing Facility is owned by Keyera Partnership, a subsidiary of Keyera Corp.
The feed and sales gas train features two high-efficiency Datum centrifugal compressors and a gearbox, driven by a 40 MW SGT-750 industrial gas turbine. The refrigeration train consists of a gearbox and an electric motor-driven Datum compressor with a variable frequency drive. The project is the first application of this generation of gas turbine for a gas processing plant in North America.
The facility has a total sour gas processing capacity of 200 MMcfd (5.6 X 106 m3) (with acid injection capabilities), along with 24,000 b/d of raw condensate processing capacity and associated water disposal facilities.
A flexible long-term service contract is in place between Siemens Energy and Keyera Partnership. As part of the agreement, Siemens Energy will provide tailored maintenance services to Keyera Partnership for the SGT-750 installation.
