Smart Simulation & Sizing Tools for Every Piping and Equipment Engineer/Designer

User Story

Project Name: Crude gas booster compressor station aimed to increase pressure at the inlet of the gas treatment unit (process equipment piping)

Company Name: OilGasProject

Project Description

Region Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District, Tyumen Region, Russian Federation
Dates 2018-2019
Scope Project scope included FEED and detail design stages for process equipment piping (centrifugal gas pumping unit, air cooling unit, separation equipment and auxiliary facilities).
Project Specific

Company had to meet the following project requirements:

  • Provide the most efficient solution in terms of length and metal capacity of the process lines
  • Project must be designed with Russian codes
  • The design must be complied with strength calculation results.

At the initial stage, two completely different options for project execution, using piston and centrifugal GPU, were swiftly developed and evaluated.

PASS software used PASS/START-PROF
How PASS software helped in the project execution

PASS/START-PROF helped to perform calculation of process equipment piping and of on-site process utility networks in accordance with GOST 32388-2013.

The calculation allowed to optimize the pipeline installation corridors, the length of pipelines, wall thicknesses, and fittings materials.

Use of PASS/START-PROF helped to perform the calculation quickly (within one working day) after creating of the initial working model, optimize the overall metal capacity of process piping networks, and meet customer reqirements.

Results FEED and detail design documentation was developed; a positive conclusion of Regulatory body (Glavgosexpertiza of Russia - GGE) has been obtained. The facility is under construction currently and will be brought into operation in 2020.
