SC “Ukrtransgaz” has put into operation CS Bobrovnytska

Today the commission of the newly built compressor station (CS) Bobrovnytska took place in Chernigiv region. Putting into operation of CS Bobrovnytska will allow to increase the volumes of gas injection into/gas extraction from the Chervonopartyzansk underground gas storage (UGS) up to 1.6-1.8 BCM, which positively will influence reliability and stability of work of the gas transmission system (GTS) of Ukraine on the whole.

CS Bobrovnytska can work in a mode of gas injection into/gas extraction from the underground storage and on the main gas pipeline Tula-Shostka-Kyiv. 6 new gas pumping units (GPU), made by the Sumy research-and-production corporation “Factory of Frunze”, with 30.5 % efficiency, were installed at CS Bobrovnytska. The GPUs are equipped with DT71PЗ engines of “Zorja” – “Mashproekt” manufacture. The exhaust gas heat recovery system, which will be used for the station premises heating, is provided.

The estimate cost of building is 310,1 million UAH

Mr. Oleg Dubyna, Chairman of Board of NJSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine”, declared that “the compressor station had become a new large-scale production object in the Company structure. The high-throughput compressor stations Dolyna, Uzhgorod, Opary have been put into operation for the last five years. NJSC “Naftogaz of Ukraine” implements consistent and purposeful policy of Ukrainian gas transmission system modernization, which long-term effective work is a convincing evidence of its reliability”.

Information: The reconstruction of technical equipment is carried out on all facilities of the gas transmission system of Ukraine in order to bring it to the European standards. 69 modern high-performance gas pumping units of domestic manufacture have been put into operation for the last few years. Capital investments are 1.2-1.3 billion UAH annually.

Reliability of the Ukrainian route of transporting of the Russian natural gas is confirmed by the fact that during the last year SC “Ukrtransgaz” repeatedly increased daily volumes of gas pumping for export on the requests of OJSC “Gazprom”. Under the condition of such increase in peak periods the volume of gas pumping achieved 150-170 BCM of annual transit, while only 120 BCM was planned in the annual contract.
