Wintershall, Sprang Capelle, Netherlands

Pumptype: MPC 268

At an existing gas facility in the Netherlands with one gas well 6 km away, the pressure was too low to meet system requirements and production often had to be shut down. To boost the pressure, Bornemann designed a wet gas compression system, which since startup in October 2002, has operated continuously with an up time of 99.8 %. Gas production has been accelerated and an increase in ultimate recovery from 90 to 95 % is expected.
