Siemens Energy commissions low-emissions compressor trains for Canadian gas plant

Siemens Energy recently completed the commissioning of one feed and sales gas train and one refrigeration compression train for the Pipestone Processing Facility in Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada.

The feed and sales gas train features two high-efficiency DATUM centrifugal compressors and gearbox, driven by a 40-megawatt SGT-750 industrial gas turbine. The refrigeration train consists of a gearbox and an electric motor-driven DATUM compressor with a variable frequency drive. The project is the first application of this generation of gas turbine for a gas processing plant in North America.
The dry-low emissions (DLE) combustion system of the SGT-750 turbine offers world-class emission performance and fuel flexibility over a wide load range. The turbine can achieve single-digit NOₓ emission levels down to a 20% load. The compression train also includes a waste heat recovery unit, which will enhance processing efficiency and further contribute to reducing the plant’s carbon footprint.  
The facility has a total sour gas processing capacity of 200 million cubic feet per day (with acid injection capabilities), along with 24,000 barrels per day of raw condensate processing capacity and associated water disposal facilities.
A flexible long-term service contract is in place between Siemens Energy and Keyera Partnership. As part of the agreement, Siemens Energy will provide tailored maintenance services to Keyera Partnership for the SGT-750 installation.  
“The fact that Siemens Energy was selected for both compression trains with a long-term service contract is a testament to confidence not only in the technical capabilities of our equipment but also in our ability to ensure smooth, on-time delivery and execution,” said Patrice Laporte, Head of North America Industrial Applications Products for Siemens Energy. “The high efficiency of the DATUM compressors, coupled with the low-emissions profile and industry-leading fuel efficiency of the SGT-750 gas turbine, will enable the Pipestone facility to ensure compliance with applicable Canadian regulations and achieve a lower carbon footprint relative to other processing facilities of comparable size.”
Siemens Energy is one of the world’s leading energy technology companies. The company works with its customers and partners on energy systems for the future, thus supporting the transition to a more sustainable world. With its portfolio of products, solutions and services, Siemens Energy covers almost the entire energy value chain – from power generation and transmission to storage. The portfolio includes conventional and renewable energy technology, such as gas and steam turbines, hybrid power plants operated with hydrogen, and power generators and transformers. More than 50 percent of the portfolio has already been decarbonized. A majority stake in the listed company Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE) makes Siemens Energy a global market leader for renewable energies. An estimated one-sixth of the electricity generated worldwide is based on technologies from Siemens Energy. Siemens Energy employs more than 90,000 people worldwide in more than 90 countries and generated revenue of around €27.5 billion in fiscal year 2020.
