OTC 2017: Dresser-Rand to supply compressors for Mad Dog Phase 2
BP has contracted the Dresser-Rand business, part of Siemens Power and Gas Division, to provide rotating equipment for the Mad Dog Phase 2 project in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.
The scope of supply comprises two DATUM compressor trains driven by Siemens electric motors for export gas service. Equipment delivery is scheduled for 2018.
The Dresser-Rand business will supply two low-pressure D6A4S and two high-pressure D6R9B compressors. The modular design of the DATUM compressor is said to minimize maintenance and reduce downtime. Each compressor train will be driven by a Siemens electric motor and includes a variable speed gearbox.
The Mad Dog field was discovered in 1998 and started production in 2005. Mad Dog Phase 2 will include a new floating production platform with the capacity to produce up to 140,000 b/d of crude oil from up to 14 production wells. Oil production is expected to begin in late 2021.
