Oil and gas operation systems increasingly complex 

As technologies in the oil and gas industry become more sophisticated, operations are also becoming more complex. At the same time, it’s important to reconfigure operations to become more efficient and cost-effective, and to reduce their carbon footprint. 

Integrating simple, compact solutions is the answer

The oil and gas industry is attempting to reduce complexity by integrating simple, compact solutions. Customers demand “plug & play” solutions from a single source that are both easy to implement and require only a short time for installation and commissioning.

It is essential to standardize the components in these integrated solutions to ensure reliable, efficient operations. One can assume very harsh and difficult environmental conditions with very complex logistics. Operating systems and application requirements vary across different market segments, like subsea, platform, FPSO, and gas export terminals. Modular solutions have proven to be the best option as they provide the greatest possible flexibility in process design, equipment qualification, and later in the maintenance process.

Oil-free compressors (HOFIM™)

Oil-free compression systems offer considerable advantages over conventional models. As long as there is a secure, adequate power supply, the electric drive is always more efficient than the combustion-based equivalent. They also allow for simple, affordable remote control.

By eliminating components such as dry gas seals, lube oil system and gearbox, the MAN HOFIM™ compressor package uses a high speed induction motor and active magnetic bearings from MECOS. The motor is cooled by process gas and directly coupled to the barrel type compressor. In addition to gas storage and pipelines, HOFIM™ can also be used for dirty and/or sour untreated wellhead gas, LNG, hydrogen and CO2, just to name a few. It may be integrated in different applications, such as subsea, platform, FPSO and gas export terminals.

How you benefit:

  • Emission-free, environmentally friendly system
  • Small footprint, lightweight
  • Low installation and operating costs
  • Minimum service and maintenance requirements (fewer moving parts)

Compression for gas transport

When transporting natural gas over long distances, it is essential to have compression systems in place that meet the specific requirements of pipeline compressor stations.

MAN Diesel & Turbo offers MOPICO®, is a unique, state-of-the-art, integrated motor-driven pipeline compression system. Simple, compact and cost-effective, this highly efficient system requires practically no maintenance. MOPICO® compression systems are available in various frame sizes based on the required motor rating. The hermetically sealed compact compressors have an integrated high-speed electrical motor and active magnetic bearings

How you benefit:

  • Minimum service and maintenance requirements
  • Small footprint, lightweight
  • Extremely low noise emission levels
  • Suitable for remote control and unmanned operation

RB modules for gas transport

The oil and gas industry needs multi-stage barrel compressors for natural gas gathering, reinjection, lift, depletion, storage, withdrawal and repressurization solutions. Their compact design makes them an ideal choice for wide pressure ranges and for various gases.

MAN offers centrifugal compressors in two main designs: barrel type (RB) and the horizontally split type (RH). Centrifugal compressors are used in a variety of industrial segments: upstream, midstream, downstream and petrochemical processes, as well as industrial gas production. The barrel-type design produces suction flow rates of up to 230,000 m3/h and a maximum discharge pressure of 80 bar.

How you benefit:

  • Highest efficiency and proven impeller design
  • Pre-designed sealing systems for easy assembly
  • Service-friendly design and easy maintenance
