Expro delivers gas compression solution
Customer challenges
  • During oil and gas production a large amount of gas is flared due to the unavailability of gas processing infrastructure
  • Natural gas flaring not only represents a lost economic opportunity but is also a major source of greenhouse gas emissions. Our client estimated that around 1 billlion cubic feet of gas are being flared daily
  • An alternative solution to flaring was required to reduce or utilise the quantity of gas flared
  • The customer had a Multiphase Pumping (MPP) solution however it was troublesome and they experienced long down time and high costs
Expro Excellence
  • Expro undertook a detailed study to find an alternative to gas flaring by comparing the use of diesel engine drive multiphase pumps versus a gas engine drive-reciprocating compressor. The study concluded that in all concerned areas, the compressor + pump + separator solution was the recommended for installation at all the sites
  • The solution will utilise a reciprocating gas engine drive compressor at each Early Production Facility (EPF)
  • Expro utilised the producing gas to run the gas engine drive compressors which significantly reduced the running cost
  • Expro delivered, installed and commissioned the compressors within 32 weeks (from award to first gas)
Value to client
  • Expro solution with the use of gas engine drive compressors allowed the customer to reduce the time and cost by half comparing to the multiphase pump
  • Fast track equipment delivery enabled customer to obtain early gas production gains with increased production revenue and potential of 15% savings on cost
  • Client managed to contain greenhouse effect and reduce flare foot print for the first time since 2012
