Perm Gas Turbines for Yamal Gas Fields

Posted on August 2, 2006

It has been announced that during the months of August and September, three Perm-produced, GTU-16P gas turbines are scheduled to be put into service after the commissioning of East-Tarkosalinskaya Gas Boost Compressor Station. This is reportedly the first project of the largest independent producer of gas, Novatek OJSC, that will use Perm gas turbines.

The East-Tarkosalinskaya gas boost compressor station is located near Pionersky settlement 15 km from Tarko-Sale town of Yamal-Nenets autonomous region. The station is designed to compress natural gas to the pressure, under which Urengoi-Surgut-Chelyabinsk gas pipeline is operated, and will transport gas to utilities. Nominal production capacity of the station is more that 17 000 000 m3 of gas a day.

East-Tarkosalinskaya Gas Boost Compressor Station includes three, GKA-16 “Ural” gas compressor plants with 16 MW each (developed and produced by “Iskra” OJSC, Russia). The station will be operated by the NORTGAS company of Tarkosaleneftegas. To support the gas turbines maintenance and servicing a representative of Perm Engine Co. will be available at the field site.
