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
-Lee Nichols
The gas processing/LNG sector is investing in new technologies to mitigate carbon emissions from both operations and its supply chain.
Industry Focus: Maximizing the performance of your ETRM system
-Teresa Kroh, Brad York
Energy trading and risk management (ETRM) systems are vital for the support of business processes associated with trading energy commodities such as crude oil, refined products, natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs) and electric power, as well as facilitating the movement and delivery of those energy commodities and associated risk management activities.
Sustainability
-Oz Rodriguez, Catriona Penman
More than 100 participating countries at the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) signed the Global Methane Pledge, in which they agreed to take action to reduce methane emissions at least 30% by 2030 vs. 2020 levels.


Optimizing Gas Distribution: Accounting for Changeovers, Regulators, and More

Register Now

Gas distribution systems are critical to the effective operation of many industrial facilities around the world. Despite the importance of these systems, however, opportunities to improve their performance and cost-effectiveness are often missed or misunderstood. Increasing changeover pressure may seem like a good way to improve system flow, for example, but it often does so at the expense of bottled gas. Adding regulators may help you control supply pressure, but it also adds cost to your system. So, how do you know what the ideal gas distribution setup is for you?

Attend this webinar to:

  • Gain a basic understanding of the fluid dynamics that affect pressure control in gas distribution systems, learning to interpret flow curves and recognize phenomena like lockup, droop, and supply pressure effect (SPE)
  • Learn how inlet pressure affects regulator performance and when to specify certain regulator types and configurations to effectively control gas system pressures

Understand the inherent trade-offs between gas utilization and flow capacity and how to select both the right changeover pressure and automatic changeover panel design for your operations.
