Natural gas goes from the well into gathering and treatment systems and from there into pipelines. These steel pipelines are often several thousand kilometers long. Over these distances pressure losses arise that require the gas to be recompressed in compressor stations. These compressor stations are located typically at 150 to 200 km distance along pipelines and are the most important parts of a gas transmission system.
Pipeline and sealed compressors operate in these applications. Highly flexible compressor solutions cover the typical application requirements. MAN Diesel & Turbo offers both conventional pipeline compressors (Type RV) for natural gas transport and/or high speed hermetically sealed, emission free compressors such as MOPICO® or HOFIM™. With our own mechanical drive gas turbines we are able to provide full train capabilities for gas turbine compressor units.
