FPSO gas compressor pulsation

FPSO gas compressor pulsation

analysis to API 618 (5th Edition).

Client: Designer of storage and equipment for oil industry.

Tough Problem: Detailed pulsation analysis of a six stage compressor system located on FPSO.

Study required performance of pressure pulsation analysis, acoustic analysis and a shaking force and vibration analysis conforming to API 618 (5th Edition) standards.

These forces were to be used as inputs to further dynamic analysis.

Practical Solution: Study completed ontime and onbudget with recommended design changes to reduce forces and vibration in the system.

Bottom Line: SVT expertise reduces cost and risk for compressor package supplier.
