"Promoting Technical and Operational Excellence in The European Gas Processing Industry"

Who are we?

A bit of background

GPA founded in the US in the 1920's. In 1983, GPA Europe was established as a parallel organisation.

 

We currently have over 200 members, including the great majority of European gas companies. We aim to provide a forum to share ideas by bringing together business and technical leaders from a range of gas processing organisations across 20+ countries.

 

We are a not for profit organisation that brings players of the European Gas Industry together to do business around technical stories.

 

Here at GPA Europe, our role is two-fold:

1  GPA Europe promotes technical and operational excellence

2  GPA Europe serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas and information

How can we help you?

We will be highlighting a paper of particular interest from our archives each month.

Paper of the Month

This month we are looking back to a paper from Mounir Mossolly and Celine Belbol from Technip Energies.

"Turbomachinery Configuration for LNG Projects Concept Selection

"Refrigerant compressors are the pumping heart of any liquefied natural gas plant. Those compressors are nowadays systematically of centrifugal type, they vary in size and configuration, being influenced by the context of the project. Steam turbines, gas turbines (heavy duty or aero-derivative) and electric motors – and a combination of these three - are all possible options to drive the refrigerant compressors. It has been demonstrated that a single shaft can drive one, two or three compressor casings depending on plant capacity, the liquefaction process technology and balancing needs of power. This is particularly interesting as drivers with larger output power and efficiency can be considered. This paper will elaborate on the selection of an optimum turbomachinery configuration from a technical perspective. This paper builds on technical experience attained through working on multiple concept and early FEED studies for turbomachinery selection in LNG projects, some of which have gone to execution.

Presented at the GPA Europe Virtual Technical Series, November 2020.
