Leading consulting group with a 360° approach
In order to increase the throughput capacity of the transportation system, a crude oil booster pump station was established at Filsø, near the west coast of Jutland.
In 1990-1991, the booster pump station was designed with a throughput capacity of 170,000 BPD. In 1994, a further capacity increase to 210,000 BPD was implemented and in 1998-2000 a major expansion of the pump station took place resulting in a throughput capacity of 370,000 BPD.The project included evaluation of performance and throughput capacity, comprising pipeline scraper receiver and launcher, five booster pumps with a normal operating capacity of 5 x 560 m3/h x 65 barg, flow improver injection facilities, pump control system, fire-fighting and gas detection systems and general utility systems.A major challenge of this project was the tie-in planning of the new facilities in order to complete the project within a tight time schedule without interrupting the offshore crude production.
