Gazprom informed that the upgraded Bubnovskaya compressor station was commissioned today in the Volgograd Region.
The upgrade of the Bubnovskaya CS is an important stage in rehabilitating the Petrovsk – Pisarevka section of the Urengoy – Novopskov gas trunkline. Upon completion, the required amount of natural gas will be securely supplied to the Southern Corridor (western route) gas network.
By now, nearly 200 kilometers of the line pipe section at Petrovsk – Pisarevka were overhauled, the Yekaterinovka CS was retrofitted, and a connection point, a gas branch and interconnectors were constructed at the Pisarevka CS, which will soon be commissioned.
During the upgrade of the Bubnovskaya CS, state-of-the-art gas compressor units, air cooling units, dust traps and other mostly domestically produced equipment were installed at compressor shop No. 2 (commissioned in 1983).
“The upgraded Bubnovskaya CS increases the reliability of Southern Corridor – a very essential and important project for central and southern parts of Russia as well as for gas injection into export pipelines of the Black Sea Region,” said Anatoly Paramonov, Deputy Head of Gazprom’s Central Production and Dispatch Department.
