eVCP FOR RECIPROCATING COMPRESSOR BEST EQUIPMENT UTILIZATION  WITH FULL AUTOMATION

BY: HOERBIGER

eVCP MAXIMIZES COMPRESSOR OUTPUT …

Getting the maximum production output from a compressor directly results in money in the operator’s pocket.

To visualize what the additional compressor capacity provided by Evcp results in, here is an example:

  • The compressor’s nominal flow without eVCP is 7 MMSCFD (million standard cubic foot per day).
  • The gas contains 80% dry natural gas, 10% natural gas liquids (NGL) and 10% nitrogen.
  • Assume the natural gas price stays constant at $ 2 per MMBTU (million British thermal units) for dry natural gas and at $ 5 per MMBTU NGL.

eVCP eliminates the production losses caused by clearance pocket load steps of one compressor by continuously adjusting its capacity to the driver’s torque limit. The resulting increase in production accounts for 0.7 MMSCFD (million standard cubic foot per day).

The additional revenues per day: $1,500

In 5 years, the additional compressor output could result in

over$ 2,500,000

 of potential natural gas sales.
