Natural Gas Treatment: increase your productivity
Natural gas treatment: STATOIL turboexpanders on Sleipner fields work 100 % with S2M Magnetic Bearings. S2M, the incontestable leader in active magnetic bearings technology, led several projects regarding the natural gas treatment.
Thus, North Sea Natural Gas Sleipner East and West, 2 offshore fields operated by Statoil, one of the largest companies in Norway and one of the major gas companies in Europe, now producing around 20% of the gas production of Statoil, trusted S2M on-site experience and took part at S2M's natural gas treatment projects.
The turboexpanders used in the separation process (natural gas, condensates, water and CO2) are critical machines with high availability requirements. The choice of turboexpanders equipped with magnetic bearings was made first on Sleipner East, then on Sleipner West.
Thanks to S2M natural gas treatment technology, the innovative solution proposed by the manufacturer Cryostar was to use the magnetic bearing technology on these large high pressure natural gas turboexpanders.
Today these 8 turboexpanders, which process 100% of the natural gas from the Sleipner fields, are the most reliable machines on the platform. Be a part of S2M experience and increase your productivity by choosing the natural gas treatment solutions S2M offers you.
