38-MW aeroderivative gas turbine introduced for oil and gas industry

The SGT-A35 RB turbine provides a cost-effective solution for the offshore oil and gas industry by increasing the power density of the topside power generating equipment and reducing the required space claim. Using the combined expertise from its acquisitions of Dresser-Rand and Rolls-Royce Energy business, Siemens recently launched the latest evolution of its gas turbine […]

Meeting Base Package Design Requirements for Service on Floating Production, Storage, and Offloading Vessels

Typical floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) compression applications are presented, including drivers and auxiliary equipment, and typical compressor operating conditions. Base packages consisting of centrifugal compressor(s), gear, motor or gas turbine driver, lube oil tank, and auxiliary equipment require extensive analyses to validate design requirements for service on FPSO vessels. Finite element analyses (FEA) are performed to insure that stress […]

Major Breakthrough Achieved in Compressor Technology

In a major advance in centrifugal compressor technology, Dresser-Rand has successfully engineered, manufactured and tested what are believed to be the world’s highest density centrifugal compressors for re-injection service. While the units will be used in the oil and gas upstream market, the technology is applicable to other market segments requiring the compression of carbon […]
