Irkutsk, October 15 - Neftegaz.RU. Verkhnechonskneftegaz
, an enterprise of the upstream complex of Rosneft, has introduced a technology for rational use of associated petroleum gas (APG) for power generation at the 1st stage of the North-Danilovskoye field development. For this purpose, a 4 MW mobile power center was commissioned at the field.
The produced gas is separated and treated directly at the cluster pad. The power center is already providing mechanized oil production
at cluster pad 1 and the operation of a drilling rig with electricity. Upon completion of the overhead power transmission line, power supply will be provided to other oil production facilities of the field, reservoir pressure maintenance system, and housing settlement.
The mobile power center will be the main source of energy until completion of the 31 MW gas turbine power plant. The processed associated gas will be supplied to it from the preliminary water discharge unit. After the power plant start-up, the field will be fully supplied with APG
