Success Story

Flexible In Fuel & Reliable In Operation

Customer: Lukoil Sever LLC

Many of the untapped oil resources are based in remote locations. The conditions in parts of Russia are a perfect example of how oil exploration can be challenged by hazardous conditions. The Tedinskoe oil field is in northern Russia. At this extremely remote site near the Arctic Circle, winter temperatures drop to -40 oC and summer temperatures rise up to 35 oC.

Two 1.8 MW OP16 gas turbine gensets use wellhead gas to supply 1.8 MWe each continuously at base load output. They are attached to hot-water boilers providing 3 MW each in thermal energy for site heating, process operations and oil line trace heating services. The gas turbines operated for six years before scheduled overhaul, building up an impressive performance record. They each achieved 48 000 hours’ running time, working constantly, although 40 000 hours is the recommended period between overhauls.

Are you interested to find out more information about this project and read about key results and benefits from the OP16 solution?
