Andrew (AAD) Rewheel Gas Compression Study*


Client: BP

Field (Type): Andrew (Oil & Associated Gas; Offshore UK)

Project Name: Andrew (Andrew Area Development) Rewheel Gas Compression Study

Value Added: Improved efficiency, performance and integrity of process gas compression system. Redesign of process gas centrifugal compressors to handle tiebacks to Kinnoull, Arundel, LC and Mabel fields


  • Duration: Approximately three months

  • Role: Project/Study Management & Engineering

  • Disciplines involved: Rotating Equipment Engineering and Project/Study Managements.

  • Project interfaces: Direct with end client


  • investigate existing operational, reliability and control issues and provide recommendations to resolve them

  • Potentially develop a new compressor rewheel design as necessary to rectify the reliability issues

    • Compressor rewheel should be developed to handle future integration of satellite fields arising from wider field developments and expansions
