Compressor Controls Corporation (CCC) has been awarded multiple contracts for a major $21.3bn LNG project in the Russian Artic region.

Led by Russian independent gas producer Novatek, the Arctic LNG 2 project boasts an expected production capacity of 19.8 million tonnes per year.

Based on the hydrocarbon resources of the Utrenneye field, the project includes constructing three LNG trains at 6.6 million tons per annum (MTPA) each, using gravity-based structure (GBS) platforms.

Under the contracts awarded by Novatek, CCC will oversee the turbomachinery controls and optimisation of all three 6.6 MTPA LNG trains’ centrifugal compressors and expanders.

In addition to spearheading anti-surge, performance, quench and other advanced controls, CCC will provide an emulator for use during the plant simulation and its eventual OTS.

The company will leverage specialised local and global teams, and collaborate with the field’s leading OEMs, to execute and deliver state-of-the-art control algorithms.

“These contracts recognise CCC’s performance on the Yamal LNG project and allow us to continue strengthening our partnership with Novatek,” said CCC Director of Global Projects Osama Abou Shabab.

“We’re proud that Novatek has entrusted our global team to control all critical and non-critical machines in its hallmark Arctic LNG 2 project.”

“CCC’s field-tested, proven control techniques and algorithms will maintain and improve the project’s targeted RAM.”
