ZURICH, Switzerland – Yinson has contracted MAN Energy Solutions to supply four RB-type centrifugal-compressor trains for the new FPSO Anna Nery.
The vessel will serve the Marlim and Voador fields in the Campos basin, 150 km (93 mi) off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.
MAN’s scope of supply covers four RB-type compressor trains (2 × RB 56-4+4 and 2 × RB 28-7) with hydraulic, variable-speed gearboxes driven by an electric motor, all designed, manufactured, and tested at the company’s facility in Zurich.
The machines will be used for gas export and gas lift. The Anna Nery will eventually have a production capacity of up to 70,000 b/d of oil and 6,600 cu m/d of natural gas.
MAN added that the double-screw compressor trains – type CP200/CP128/B85 – driven by fixed-speed electric motors, will be used as vapor-recovery units. Instead of flaring flash gas into the atmosphere, the screw compressors will pressurize and feed it back into the process, which should lead to increased gas-production efficiency as well as lower CO2 emissions.
The company’s complex in Oberhause, Germany, will design, manufacture, and test the screw compressors, with installation and commissioning of all compressor trains due to follow in 2Q 2021.
