NEW ENERGY For the oilmen of Western Siberia

In November 2011, LUKOIL-Western Siberia launched a 48 mW gas turbine power generation station that runs on associated petroleum gas, at the Krasnoleninsky field. This is the third power generating station built by LOUKOIL-Western Siberia based on Perm-built gas turbine units. The first — the Vatyeganskaya GTES-72 — launched in early 2008, and the second — Tevlino-Russkinskaya GTES-48 launched in 2009.

The Krasnoleninskaya GTES-48 is composed of four 12 mW power generating units, which use GTU-12PG-2 generators, designed by Aviadvigatel and manufactured by PMZ.

Aviadvigatel not only developed the GTU-12PG-2 and delivered the equipment, it also carries out proprietary repairs and technical service on the gas turbine electricity stations built on its own units.

At present, Russian producers of gas turbine equipment offer customers servicing within standard requirements as laid out in the operating manual which, generally, includes technical servicing in periods of planned outage.

Aviadvigatel offers a new approach to supporting the operation of gas turbine equipment — “proprietary repair and technical servicing”. Aviadvigatel’s new concept is 365 days-a-year, round-the-clock technical support and technical servicing throughout the entire operational lifespan of the equipment, enabling continuous operation of the GTPP. Aviadvigatel also continually supplies spare and replacement parts and carries out all repairs to the equipment (including major overhaul). The customer, in turn, is obliged to use the GTPP in accordance with the technical specifications, and inform Aviadvigatel in good time of any problems with the equipment and allow company specialists free access to it. The customer pays cost per operator hour of the station. The commercial element is calculated from the physical running hours of the GTPP and the cost of one hour of running time on the generating units.

In 2010, Aviadvigatel signed its first contract for proprietary repair and technical servicing for the entire operational lifespan of 10 power generating units with LUKOIL-Western Siberia. The basic indicators for the work were the annual running time at more than 8,000 hours.

The generating units of the new gas turbine electricity station will also be serviced by Aviadvigatel. Launching the new power station into operation will allow the company to utilize up to 95% of the associated petroleum gas from the Krasnoleninsky field, and supply the field’s energy needs.

LUKOIL-Western Siberia plans to build two more GTPPs with a total capacity of 96 mW, with Perm-built equipment. These should come on-line in 2012. In contrast to the earlier stations based on the GTU-12PG-2, they will use combined cycle units (GTU-TEC), which increases efficiency in using fuel gas and lowers the production cost of heat energy and electrical energy. And they will also be serviced by Aviadvigatel.
