Gas Compression Tarahan

ETI installed natural gas booster compressors for PT PLN Batam in Tarahan. The pressure of the natural gas in the pipeline is 8 barg but the requirement of the gas turbine is 34 barg. To increase the pressure of the natural gas before entering the gas turbine, ETI installed 6 units of natural gas booster compressors, each with a capacity of 5.5 MMSCFD before entering the 4 x 25 MW TM 2500 GE Gas Turbines.
As procurement of new natural gas booster compressors require several months, ETI introduced a bridging concept to ensure there is no delay in the electricity production of the gas turbine power plant. ETI installed several natural gas booster compressors on standby to be used while the new natural gas booster compressors are being manufactured.
When the natural gas booster compressors are ready, the bridging units will be replaced with the new units. This concept allows a lower down time for the electricity generation and therefore, income is generated faster.
