Kosmos-Neft-Gaz, Caloperm Launch Plate Heat Exchangers Production

A proper agreement has been signed at the Offshore Europe Oil and Gas Conference and Exhibition, held in September 2009 in Aberdeen, UK, under the theme “Rediscovering the Future”. The exhibition sponsors mentioned major changes in the world oil and gas exploration and production such as increase in demand, enhanced oil recovery, and sophisticated production process.

   All these require high technology equipment. That is why Kosmos-Neft-Gaz and Caloperm decided to jointly lauhcn production of plate heat exchangers with a designed pressure of 25.0 MPa, which would be used in the oil and gas and chemical industries.

   President of Kosmos-Neft-Gaz Ivan Lachugin noted that plate heat exchangers have a number of advantages compared to tube heat exchangers. First of all, these are high efficiency, compactness, reduced metal content, and high corrosion resistance. These features enable using plate heat exchanger modules packaged with various equipment (separators, vessels, filters, etc.), which will allow to save construction costs while developing field infrastructure and to reduce energy consumption during field operation.

   To further develop General Agreement No. 239 of December 28, 2006 between Kosmos-Neft-Gaz and Gazprom on designing high technology import substituting equipment for needs of Gazprom’s enterprises, Kosmos-Neft-Gaz will manufacture modules of plate heat exchangers (combined with separators and separate) for gas processing facilities (GPF). Each heat exchanger will be manufactured in accordance with customers’ individual requirements. To do the work, Kosmos-Neft-Gaz has two design institutes, a manufacturing complex, as well as research and development divisions.
