“We are especially proud of the effort that our employees put into this project,” said Mark Little, EnDyn’s Director of Service. “The scope of the work was large – three complete packages that were totally customized to Petrotech’s needs. Petrotech is a valued customer of ours, and we worked hard to ensure that their exact horsepower and pressure specifications were met.”
The SUPERIOR® packages featured natural gas fired engines with reciprocating, multiple-stage compressors. A total of 7950 Horsepower (2650 HP/unit) was supplied. The final gas discharge pressure of the units is 2000 psi, with a total combined gas flow of 38 mmscfd. The units were also equipped with state-of-the-art programmable Altronic control panels, utilizing CPU-95 electronic ignition systems along with EPC200c AR-to-fuel ratio controllers.
“Petrotech needed the additional horsepower and customized packaging because they plan to use these units for natural gas sales as well as for injection service,” explained Jack McMonagle, EnDyn’s Manager of Special Projects. “South America is really in a growth state for the gas sales market at the present time. In the past, South American operators had not used natural gas to its full potential. Instead, they reinjected the gas into the formation to enhance oil output or burnt it in flare stacks. This new Petrotech station is different because they plan to sell the natural gas for use as fuel for local power generation plants.”
In addition to supplying the SUPERIOR® units, EnDyn sent two of the company’s Alice-based service representatives to Peru to assist in the commissioning and start-up of the packages. The EnDyn employees assisted Petrotech’s current operators in the installation, training, and troubleshooting of the new systems.
