Siemens was recently selected to provide one feed and sales gas train and one refrigeration compression train for Encana’s Pipestone Processing Facility in Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada.
Designed to accommodate future capacity expansion, the Pipestone Processing Facility will provide Encana with 19 000 bpd of net raw condensate processing capacity plus 170 million ft3/d of net inlet natural gas processing capacity. Keyera will own the Pipestone Processing Facility and provide processing services to Encana. The facility will have total processing capacity of 200 million ft3/d and is expected to start up in 2021.
The first train will consist of a Siemens SGT-750 gas turbine driving two Dresser-Rand DATUM compressors for feed and sales gas compression, combined with a Siemens waste heat recovery unit for process heat. The second train will consist of a Siemens electric motor-driven DATUM compressor for refrigeration compression with Siemens variable frequency drive.
“Siemens state-of-the-art SGT-750 gas turbine is the only twin-shaft engine in its power class with industry-leading fuel efficiency and one of the lowest emission profiles,” said Patrice Laporte, Vice President, Oil & Gas for Siemens America. “The train configuration achieved by coupling the SGT-750 with the highly efficient DATUM compressors provides an excellent solution for the Encana’s Pipestone gas compression service.”
In 2015, Siemens supplied three pipeline compressor trains driven by SGT-750 gas turbines to Fermaca for its El Encino – La Laguna pipeline project. In 2017, China’s largest acrylic producer, Zhejiang Satellite Energy Co., selected Siemens to provide an SGT-750 gas turbine to drive two Siemens STC-SH single-shaft compressors for Phase II of its propylene dehydration plant.
“We’re providing all of the equipment for these two compression trains from one source, which lends testament to Encana’s ongoing confidence in our equipment and Siemens’ capability to offer a one-stop solution to our customers,” said Matthew Chinn, Executive Vice President New Equipment Solutions for Siemens Oil and Gas. “Further to this, our solution is less capital intensive, due to the excellent attributes of the SGT-750 turbine’s lower life cycle costs compared to competing turbines in the industry.”
