Our client needed to retrofit a surplus sour compressor to meet the specifications and operating conditions of their existing plant. They required a low-cost solution that maintained facility operations while meeting strict regulatory requirements. This can be difficult to accomplish with an older surplus unit, but Startec was able to find the best solution to this problem.
Supply Chain Management (SCM) is constantly evolving to meet the demands of the energy industry as it transforms to support consumer demand while adapting to market changes. Over the course of Frazer's career, SCM has earned a seat at the table when it comes to making strategic decisions for the business. It’s much more complex than the old school of thought where buyers simply issued a purchase order.
After reviewing the original design, as well as additions made to the plant, our team resized their existing reboiler to allow it to boil off the extra water content while maintaining the same Ethylene Glycol (EG) flow rate (heat medium). Since we did the majority of the fabrication, QC, painting, and insulation at our facility, were able to minimize the amount of time and labour spent in the field installing the modifications. The end result was our client was able to save money and at the same time, minimize the downtime of the facility to under two weeks.
Debottleneck studies are an important step in discovering what could be minimizing the throughput of your operation. It is a cost-effective way to optimize your facility, while allowing you to continue operating with minimal downtime. When our client added new wells with higher flow rates and different composition, a debottleneck study was the solution they needed to optimize their plant relative to these new conditions. We sat down with Leon Sutherland, Startec Applications Engineering & Product Development Manager, to learn more.
