MSi Kenny to provide Nord Stream compression modeling subsystem

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – Gazprom Avtomatizatsiya has contracted MSi Kenny to provide a modeling subsystem for the Portovaya compressor station (CS Portovaya) on the Russian coast of the Baltic Sea.

The 366-MW compressor station is part of the Gryazovets - Vyborg gas trunkline, designed to improve gas supply in Russia’s northwest region and to direct gas from Russia to Europe via the 1,200-km (745-mi) long Nord Stream pipelines.

The modeling subsystem will comprise an engineering and operations simulator for offline simulation and a gas management system to monitor and optimize compressor station operations to meet Nord Stream’s requirements.

These will be the most geographically extensive gas transmission simulation models ever implemented by MSi Kenny, and will be based on an expanded version of modeling software used by the Nord Stream Pipeline Co.

This will enable Gazprom to optimize compressor operations while still achieving optimal pipeline inventory and operating conditions.
