Dresser-Rand have developed a new compression concept – the DATUM Integrated Compression System (ICS). The compression system is engineered with centrifugal separator technology incorporated on the compressor rotor to provide an efficient, compact solution to compression system design.
Subsea gas processing has increasingly become a possible solution for fields located in harsh conditions where topside gas processing equipment might be at risk. Subsea gas processing is an emergent application, and can encompass a number of processes that help to reduce the cost and complexity of developing offshore fields in such regions.
Oil and gas operators benefit from the overall size reduction of production facilities, platforms, and subsea modules because of the small footprint of the DATUM ICS.
