A demethanizing column (demethanizer) the biggest equipment of the Amur gas processing plant (GPP), has been delivered to the berth for train 4 of the Amur GPP, according to a statement by Gazprom pererabotka Blagoveshchensk.
The 88 m long demethanizer weighs 870 tonnes. Cranes with a lifting capacity of 1,350 and 750 tonnes have been installed for loading and unloading operations at the temporary berth of the Amur GPP.
"Demechanization is the core of our technology where methane is separated from other valuable fractions. This device generates a pressure of 30 atmospheres and a temperature of -100 degrees Celsius. It is essential that the gas will be processed into high value-added products domestically, at a Russian plant," Yuri Lebedev, CEO of Gazprom pererabotka Blagoveshchensk, commented.
Amur GPP will be one of the world's biggest natural gas processors. With a design capacity of 42 bcm per year, the plant will consist of six production lines, the first two of which will be commissioned in 2021. Besides, natural gas, GPP's other commercial products will include ethane, propane, butane, pentane-hexane fraction and helium.
