INTERCONNECTING PIPELINES

On August 2008 PGNiG, the Polish Oil & Gas Company, awarded a contract for the construction of the Crude Oil/Gas extraction and threating complex which, by the beginning of 2013 almost double the amount Polish Crude Oil extraction. The complex, enables also the further extraction of 200-250 million cubic meters per year, improving Polish energy security. The core of the project consists in the realization of a complete, self-standing, grass root facility designed to treat 1,300 tons/day of oil and 30.000 Nm3/h of gas extracted from 14 wells located in the areas of the complex. Well bore facilities and interconnecting pipelines (for a total length of 25 Km) are also part of the project. Central facility included process units (separators, crude dehydration/stabilization, amine recovery/purification, sulphur recovery, gas refrigeration/fractionation, molecular sieves, sulfinol, gas compression, oil shipping) and utilities & off Sites (power generation, utilities, storage tanks, truck loading systems, waste water treatment and others). The scope of the contract includes start-up and initial operation until test-run. KT scope is the supply, start-up and operation of amine recovery/purification unit, sulfinol recovery/purification unit, LPG molecular sieve purification unit, NG molecular sieve purification unit, sulphur recovery unit and truck sulphur loading unit. Several critical issues were faced during project execution, as the production units had to be built in a protected area (a forest protected by the European Law “Nature 2000”), the contract imposed unusual constraints to the construction works. In relation to the above, the noise level required by the contract was unusually low. Design and construction of the production units were executed under the “Mining Law” and the law for “Public Works”, which made longer and more complex the process of approval, design, construction and test of the Units. The Project was completed within the contract time-schedule, with no major accidents during construction works.
