Compressor seal gas system

BPT has been engaged with a compressor modification project where different seal gas systems will be validated to better protect the compressors from situations that could lead to serious failures during operation.

“This project fits nicely into BPT’s refreshed strategy of providing world-leading services for centrifugal compressor systems to the global energy industry”, states Knut Erik Spilling, BPT CEO. "Our unique simulator solutions and workflows for compressor design, troubleshooting and optimization are the main foundation used by BPT’s dedicated compressor task force team in providing high-quality-and-high-value services related to processing facilities and compressors in particular.”

The compressor system involved in this study is for a major gas transportation system in Europe. BPT works closely with both the operator and MMO contractor (Maintenance, Modifications and Operations).

Billington Process Technology (BPT) is an independent digital solution, simulation and service company with Headquarter outside Oslo, Norway. BPT has unique domain knowledge within production and process facilities. We are world-class users of process simulators, and among the specialties are compressor design as well as process safety. The BPT Digital Production Twin includes an unmatched solution for holistic sensor-correction providing invaluable data fundament for a number of advanced digital applications (ala machine learning) as well as calibrated steady-state and dynamic simulators for efficient production optimization. BPT is a frontrunner in modernizing field development approach together with innovating oil companies. A BPT specialty is to apply integrated multiphase flow and dynamic process simulators throughout the field development, commissioning, and life of field to validate and improve design as well as troubleshoot and perform production optimization.
