Equinox has significant compression experience and has successfully designed and installed over 300 compression packages, including over 60 large horsepower reciprocating and centrifugal projects. In addition, we have executed hundreds of compression studies and evaluations. Our extensive gas compression experience includes centrifugal, reciprocating, rotary screw and vane type compressors for all sweet and sour gas applications, as well as gas turbine, natural gas engine, steam turbine and electric drivers.
We have an excellent reputation and extensive expertise with the installation of compression including service (sweet, sour and acid gas), compressor types (reciprocating, centrifugal, screw, and rotary vane), and driver types (gas engine driven, electric motor driven or turbine driven) compressors. Our extensive experience has led to a unique approach to modularization for the installation of large compressors that results in substantially more economic installation cost metrics and accelerated project schedules.
Selection and Optimization Studies
With decades of optimization and compressor selection studies completed, Equinox has an extensive database of compressor selection studies focused principally on determining optimum compressor strategies and life cycle costs – with specific emphasis on key criteria, such as CAPEX, OPEX and maintenance costs, reliability and performance. Our optimization studies focus on much of the same criteria as the selection studies but are tailored to evaluating cost effective solutions of modifying or upgrading existing infrastructure within brownfield environments. These studies also tie into various Carbon Capture treatments and options.
