Example projects

Statoil Flash Gas Compression (Kollsness, Norway)

Costain provided process engineering support and detailed compressor module design services for a 3.6MW electrically driven, variable speed centrifugal compressor. The unit comprised two casings on a common shaft and is used for the recovery of flash gas from a condensate stabilization system.

Conoco Phillips Sales Gas Compression (Barrow-In-Furness, UK)

Costain provided detailed engineering design, procurement, construction and commissioning services for 2 x 8MW gas turbine driven compressors. These units are used to compress up to 145 MMSCFD of sour gas (containing Hydrogen Sulphide and Mercaptans) to allow gas sweetening prior to export. The project employed modular construction techniques to minimise the on-site works and maximise quality.
