Gazprom Neft, a leading Russian oil and gas producer, has selected Elliott Group to build the compressor string for a new hydrogen recovery unit at its Omsk refinery. Elliott will provide a feed gas string consisting of a 15MB8 motor-driven barrel compressor. Control and buffer gas systems are included in the package.
The hydrogen recovery unit is part of an overall expansion and environmental initiative that includes a new catalytic cracking hydrotreatment plant and a diesel fuel hydrotreatment plant. The hydrogen pressure swing recovery unit will utilize UOP adsorption technology to purify the product stream in the diesel hydrotreatment plant. Gasoline and diesel products produced at the new hydrotreater complex will meet Euro-4 and Euro-5 emission standards for environmentally friendly motor fuels.
The compressor will be built and tested in Elliott Group’s U.S. manufacturing facility in Jeannette, Pennsylvania. System packaging will be completed in Elliott’s facility in La Spezia, Italy. Delivery is scheduled for late 2011.
