Stimul Processing Facility


Orenburg Region, (Southwest Russia)

TDE was awarded a contract to expand the existing facilities of an oil and gas processing plant near the Orenburg region of Russia. The scope of the project includes the design and supply of equipment to upgrade the existing train, and supply an additional train, each with the ability to process reservoir fluids to a maximum of 500,000 tonnes/year in product crude oil. In addition, the design services for the future phases of the plant expansion were to be completed, including one more processing train to bring the production of the plant to 1,500,000 tonnes/year.

As a result of the location of the plant, the project had to comply with the unique regional regulations (GOST-R, IEC, ATEX, etc.) and an arduous process for the acquisition of permits and certifications.

The project included the design and supply of additional equipment for the existing oil and gas processing train to improve the quality of oil separation, dehydration, and desalination. TDE was responsible for the design of new water treatment facilities for existing and future trains, as well as the design and supply of new oil and gas processing trains, additional utility systems required for operation of new equipment, and a flare system required for the operation of existing and new equipment.

TDE managed the registration of the plant and equipment with Russian authorities and standards agencies and registered equipment prior to shipment, as well as acquiring the necessary Permit to Use.
