At the 2013 OTC in Houston, Texas, Dresser-Rand highlighted its DATUM I compressor, part of the DATUM integrated compression system (ICS). The DATUM I uses Dresser-Rand’s proprietary rotary separator technology to remove liquid from the incoming gas stream within the casing.

The DATUM ICS integrates rotary separator technology, together with a high-speed, close-coupled, gas-cooled motor; magnetic bearing rotor system; dedicated unit controls; process coolers, valves, instrumentation and interconnecting piping – all packaged in a compact module design.

“Since introducing the DATUM compressor in 1995, we made a commitment to provide a reliable, technologically superior compressor that results in the lowest total cost of ownership for our clients,” said Jesus Pacheco, executive vice president of New Equipment Worldwide at Dresser-Rand. “The DATUM I compressor is another example of the adaptability of the DATUM product line and its ability to meet the unique application challenges of our clients.”

The new DATUM I centrifugal compressor was part of the company’s recently sold 1,000th DATUMcentrifugal compressor to PEMEX to supplement capacity on its existing Abkatun-D Platform located in the Tabasco Field in the Bay of Campeche. The DATUM I compressor in the second compression train was identified as the 1,000th DATUM compressor sold.

The order from PEMEX was booked in the fourth quarter of 2012. Dresser-Rand will engineer, fabricate, install, and test the two compression modules with an expected delivery to Pemex in early 2014.

DATUM is a registered term by Dresser-Rand.
