UOP Russell Cryogenic Gas Plant exceeds nameplate performance

L.A. Turbine (LAT) announced that its L3000 turboexpander-compressor in a UOP Russell cryogenic natural gas processing plant in Eddy County, New Mexico has exceeded its designed 200MMSCFD flowrate by 10 percent.

The skid-mounted LAT 575EC turboexpander includes a seal gas system and local programmable logic controller (PLC) unit. The turboexpander-compressor is designed for operational flexibility with a wide operating range, no speed limitations, and end-users have the ability to reduce or slightly increase the capacity to suit varying operating conditions. The structurally robust design of the expander wheel and guide vanes also contribute to the unit’s ability to exceed its flowrate capacity. As gas throughput changes, this operational and performance flexibility improves the overall reliability, efficiency, and safety of the equipment and plant.

UOP Russell modular gas processing plants include skid-mounted, pre-engineered modular equipment that is factory-built to precise specifications. Several UOP Russell modular gas processing plants feature LAT turboexpanders for gas processing and natural gas liquid (NGL) recovery. L.A. Turbine turboexpanders are designed, manufactured, assembled and tested at the company’s California headquarters. As a result, LAT can deliver a faster-to-market equipment solution to UOP Russell, andoperators can benefit from faster installation and commissioning, and earlier revenue generation.

Editorial comment
-Adrienne Blume
According to GIIGNL’s 2018 Annual Report, global LNG trade expanded by 3.5 Bft3d in 2018, to 38.2 Bft3d—a record 10% increase.
Power, LNG projects drive pipeline construction in Africa
-Shem Oirere
Increasing public investment in gas-fired power plants in Africa, the continuing recovery in global oil prices and persistent insecurity in key producer markets, such as Nigeria, are likely to impact gas transmission pipeline projects on the continent, even as more international companies express interest in the region’s stranded gas resources.


Maximize Profitability with Advanced Analytics at Natural Gas Processing Plants

View On-Demand

Incorporating economic data into process modeling is key to optimizing operations and maximizing profits at gas processing plants. However, maintaining optimal operations are often challenging due to changing market dynamics, contract structures and increasing process flexibility. Today, gas processors are leveraging Predictive Control and First Principles models to accurately determine and control the optimal operating targets in real time based on the most current plant conditions and profitability, optimizing recovery of natural gas liquids. Learn how real-time analytics, combined with decision support tools, empower companies to:
•Improve processing margins by up to 5%
•Maximize NGL production through improved availability and optimized process conditions
•Improve compositional control to operate closer to product specifications
