MOSCOW, RUSSIA – JUNE 16-19, 2014 – Dresser-Rand, a global supplier of rotating equipment solutions to the oil, gas, petrochemical, power, and process industries, will highlight products and services offering high efficiency and dependable performance to the oil and gas industries at the 21st World Petroleum Congress in Moscow.

At booth #15 D20 in Pavilion 3, Dresser-Rand will provide visitors with detailed, industry- and application-specific information on key industry-leading systems and services, including product lines that can be customized to deliver optimum value to clients in various oil and gas markets.

Dresser-Rand DATUM® Centrifugal Compressors Offer Efficiency and Reliability for Oil and Gas Industry 
Designed for maximum performance in all pressure and flow applications in the upstream, midstream and downstream oil and gas industries, the Dresser-Rand DATUM® line of centrifugal compressors offer efficiency, reliability and easy maintenance for gas gathering, liquid recovery, gas lift, gas injection, pipeline boosters, gas storage, recompression, and reinjection. It can also
be used for wet gas, hydrogen, coker, and other hydrocarbon and utility gases when refining.

DATUM centrifugal compressors are available in 15 different sizes with discharge pressures ranging up to more than 15,000 psig (1000 bar), maximum flow rates from 5,400 cfm (9,200 m3/h) to 700,000 cfm (1,200,000 m3/h), and power ratings to more than 120,000 bhp (90 MW). Cases can be split axially (900 psig max.) or radially (15,000 psig max.) and are available in a variety of configurations and connection orientations.

Gas Turbines Highlight Reduced Life Cycle Costs
Dresser-Rand will showcase the reduced life cycle costs associated with its gas turbine generator sets. While predominately used in the offshore oil and gas industry, Dresser-Rand gas turbines are used extensively throughout the world in general power applications and the rapidly expanding cogeneration market.

Meant to match clients’ electrical system characteristics and any special requirements such as motor-starting capability and voltage dip limitations, Dresser-Rand gas turbine generation packages are designed to fulfill the needs of clients in many markets including oil and gas, industrial and continuous-duty systems.

Designed to comply with site environmental conditions and any specific limitations on noise level, exhaust emissions, space and weight, the turbine, gearbox, and generator are normally aligned on a fabricated steel base, together with auxiliary equipment, to provide an integrated unit.

Dresser-Rand Steam Turbines Offer Option for Renewable Power Solutions
Dresser-Rand’s steam turbine product line provides economical and efficient generator drive solutions from 500-kWe singlestage to 100-MW multi-stage equipment. Used for a variety of markets and applications, including oil and gas, Dresser-Rand custom-designed steam turbine generators include a wide range of capabilities and configurations to meet a client’s unique, job-specific need. Customized steam turbine units are available with either direct-drive or geared and accommodate inlet steam conditions up to 2,000 psig and 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, with exhaust conditions from 800 pounds to condensing. Configurations can include condensing or non-condensing, single- or multi-valve, single- or double-automatic extraction, or induction mixed-pressure designs.

Dresser-Rand Reciprocating Compressors
Dresser-Rand process reciprocating compressors boast an outstanding record for performance, efficiency, reliability, and low maintenance in the most demanding upstream, midstream and downstream process applications. Available with up to 10 crank throws, as single-throw or balanced-opposed configurations, Dresser-Rand custom engineers each unit for efficiency by designing each cylinder and valve, and select other components to meet each client’s specific operating requirements.

Dresser-Rand Industry Expertise Powers Superior Service
For those seeking a compressor revamp, Dresser-Rand can provide a cost-effective and time saving alternative to purchasing new equipment by selecting the appropriate components to meet client-specific design conditions. SmartPerf, the Dresser-Rand performance selection program for centrifugal compressors, is one revamp option that allows the company’s specialists to select components for any legacy product lines previously sold by Dresser-Rand.

Dresser-Rand’s Global Service Centers Help Clients
