Siemens to supply equipment for Uchkyr field
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- Siemens in Russia will supply equipment to equip the booster compressor station (BCS) at the Uchkyr field in the Bukhara region of Uzbekistan.
For the first time, two units will be delivered, each of which includes a compressor and gas turbine unit.
The assembly of compressors was arranged at the production site in the settlement of Gorelovo of Leningrad region, where technical tests of equipment were first carried out.
SGT-400 gas turbines are packaged by Siemens in the Netherlands.
“The Uchkyr field in Uzbekistan is specific with hydrogen sulfide admixture of about 1.4% in the process gas. This is a dangerous gas that reacts with metals, which causes corrosion deposits on the parts of the flow section of compressors. This often leads to the equipment being out of service. Therefore, the main task was to select materials that are resistant to such effects for compressors,” Nikolai Kutsenko, director of the Oil and Gas division of Siemens in Russia, said.
