Compressors on an offshore oil platform

Additional comments

These two compressors are installed on an offshore oil platform in order to compress natural gas extracted from oil drilling. The compressed gas is used to feed a 6MW turbine in order to cover the electrical consumption of the platform. This kind of offshore applications are very demanding in terms of standards and technical requirements, but also due to the reduced available space. ABC COMPRESSORS was perfect for the application: two 1EHP-2-GT compressors engineered to suit all the needs of the client.
