Rostec’s United Engine Corporation has shipped four GTU-16P gas turbine units to Zapolyarnoye oil and gas condensate field in the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug. This is the largest gas field in the country with initial gas in place of 3.5 trillion cubic meters.
GTU-16P was designed by Perm-based UEC-Aviadvigatel, United Engine Corporation. The unit is used as part of gas compressor units and for modernization of the existing equipment.
“Rostec’s gas compressor units are widely used at the major fields in Russia to ensure steady operation of gas transmission system. In particular, 24 units with a total capacity of 384 MW has been already delivered to Zapolyarnoye oil and gas condensate field alone. Now, another four GTU-16P units have been sent to Yamal. A total of 45 gas turbine engines and 27 gas compressor units at the amount of about 30 bln Rubles will be delivered to the market players this year,” said Andrey Vorobyev, General Director of UEC-Engineering – comprehensive supplier of power-generating equipment and gas compressor equipment and services.
Zapolyarnoye oil and gas condensate field is one of the largest fields in Russia in terms of reserves and gas production. The field was discovered in 1965 220km from Novy Urengoy. The estimated capacity is 130 bcm/year. Within the period from 2016 to 2021, United Engine Corporation delivered 24 gas compressor units with a total capacity of 384MW to Zapolyarnoye oil and gas condensate field.
