Last quarter of 2013 has resulted in completion of the next two implementations of Compressor Energy Prognosis (CEP) application for a large European company managing gas storages located in Germany. One of the storage is located in a salt caverns and the second one in a depleted oil field. The total amount of compressors supported by the CEP application is equal 9 (2 centrifugal compressors are located on a salt cavern storage field and the remaining 7 on a depleted oil field storage).
Compressor Energy Prognosis is software tool designed for the calculation and optimization of compressors’ electricity and/or fuel gas demand. The goal of the optimization is to find an optimal configuration for the compressors that meets the customer’s contractual requirements and minimizes the site’s operating costs (cost of fuel, number of starts/stops). As a result an optimal configuration will be delivered and prognosis of the required electrical energy for the next 24 hours.
