A fuel gas pressure reduction system is an integral part of any system the utilizes gas as fuel. The reason for this is that prior to the fuel gas entering the turbines the pressure must be reduced to a safe, usable level. Integrating this fuel gas pressure reduction system into a process skid can be extremely beneficial for plants and work sites because the process skid offers a number of important advantages. Let’s take a look at the main specifics relating to a fuel gas pressure reduction system, and why a process skid is a great way to accommodate this system.
Why Is A Fuel Gas Pressure Reduction System So Important?
When natural gas is recovered from a well it is typically in a high pressure state. By the same token, in order for the gasl to be transported through pipelines to its destination, it must be also be in a high pressure form. However, this high pressure state is not suitable for the gas to enter the gas conditioning system or the turbines because doing so could damage them. That means that it must first go through a fuel gas pressure reduction system to bring the pressure down to workable levels. A fuel gas pressure reduction system is specially designed to handle this task in a safe, efficient manner.
What Are The Benefits Of Integrating The Fuel Gas Pressure Reduction System Into A Process Skid?
STI Group offers its customers a number of useful benefits by integrating the fuel pressure reduction system into a modular process skid. These benefits include:
Single Source Accountability – By integrating the entire system into a process skid, STI Group takes responsibility for the whole system. This prevents your company from having to take extra time and effort to contact multiple companies for replacement parts, maintenance concerns, or other questions. It also allows for a closer, more productive on-going working relationship.
Greater Affordability and Value – Pre-packaged modular process skids cost less than the component parts would if they were purchased and assembled separately. This reduces the overall cost of your project.
Minimizes Field Erection Time – By assembling your fuel gas pressure reduction system into a process skid, STI Group helps minimize your field erection time. This reduces your overall downtime and minimizes lost productivity due to installation. It also shortens the overall project delivery schedule.
Thorough System Function Testing Prior To Shipment – If the fuel gas pressure reduction system were built and assembled on-site at your facility this would make pre-testing of the actual system itself impossible, since the earliest tests would have to take place on-site. By offering process skids STI Group is able to conduct thorough testing prior to shipment to ensure that your system is functioning safely and efficiently before it ever gets to you.
Strict Adherence to Industry Standards – STI Group prides itself on its strict adherence to all industry standards, regulations, and guidelines for all of its products, especially its fuel gas pressure reduction systems. However, by integrating them into a process skid, we gain better control over the fabrication process, minimize environmental disruptions and other unknowns, and are able to meet even higher standards of quality.
STI Group is extremely experienced and possess excellent resources and materials in the industry of custom-built, turnkey fuel gas pressure reduction systems. We are pleased to be able to pass along this experience and network of resources to our customers, providing them with quick, efficient, cost-effective fuel gas pressure reduction systems. We are able to custom build everything to customer specifications and are always happy to work closely with customers to achieve the best possible fuel gas pressure reduction system for their operations.
