Enhancement of Power Generation Capacities Through Implementation Of Combined-Cycle and Gas-Turbine Technologies at OJSC “Quadra-Generating Company”
The project is implemented at the following CCPs/GTP of OJSC “Quadra-Generating Company”: Belgorod Luch GTU–CHPP, Elets CHPP, Voronezh CHPP-2, Boiler House of the North-Western District of Kursk and Kaluga CHPP-1 located in the Central Federal District.
The project is aimed at expanding the generating capacity of OJSC “Quadra-Generating Company” (hereinafter OJSC Quadra) with a view to enhancing its electricity generation efficiency, increasing electricity output, and cutting down on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by employing modern energy generation technologies. The OJSC Quadra generating capacities are planned to be expanded through construction of four CCPs and one GTP with the combined capacity of 371.3 MW. The CCPs/GTP will use natural gas as the main and backup fuel.
The project substitutes the respective amount of electric power generated by less efficient energy generating capacities of the Integrated Energy System of Central Russia (IES Center), and also makes it possible to reduce heat production using the existing less efficient equipment.
Expected emission reductions over 2011-2012 – 1344 kt СО2e
The project is implemented at OJSC Shchekinoazot, Tula Region.
It includes construction of a methanol production plant that uses modern methanol synthesis technologies and has an output of 450 kt of methanol per year. At the same time the old methanol units are decommissioned. The project aims to increase methanol production at OJSC Shchekinoazot by using state-of-the-art processes that would enhance efficiency of methanol production and reduce its energy intensity.
The project GHG emission reductions are achieved by reducing heat and power demands of the methanol production process at OJSC Shchekinoazot which is followed by reduction in fossil fuel (natural gas) consumption for heat and power generation at Pervomayskaya CHPP. Emission reductions are also due to prevented CO2 emissions from combustion of fossil fuel by third-party producers.
Expected emission reductions over 2011 – 2012 – 0.394 million tonnes of CO2e
The project aims to increase the level of beneficial utilization of associated petroleum gas (APG) by building intra-field gas pipelines and a booster compressor station in East-Tarkosalinskoye oilfield developed by LLC NOVATEK-TARKOSALENEFTEGAZ in Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous District of Tyumen Region.It is planned to utilize APG in two oilfield sections: in the southern section and in the central section. APG is taken from the field sections to the Integrated Gas and Gas Condensate Treatment Unit installed in the Gas and Gas Condensate Production Department (G&GCPD) of East-Tarkosalinskoye oilfield, where it is treated and then delivered to the gas transmission system. To ensure transportation of APG from the southern and central sections to the G&GCPD the project suggests building two intra-field gas pipelines and a BCS. The BCS output is 209.2 million cubic meters of gas per year.The project achieves carbon dioxide emissions by replacing other fossil fuels with APG. Besides, APG flaring that would occur without the project is characterized by a high unburned carbon factor that accounts for significant methane emissions. So, in addition to reducing СО2 emissions the project also cuts down on CH4 emissions.Expected emission reductions over 2010-2012 – 507,833 tonnes of CO2e
The project is aimed at increasing beneficial utilization of associated petroleum gas (APG) which is a byproduct of crude oil production at Shershnevskoe, Unvinskoe, Sibirskoe and Arkhangelskoe fields in Usolskiy District of Perm Region. These fields are operated by LLC “LUKOIL-Perm”. The APG utilization project operator is also LLC “LUKOIL-Perm”.
APG from Shershnevskoe and Unvinskoe fields is planned to be compressed and delivered via a newly built gas pipeline to LLC Permneftegaspererabotka (LLC PNGP) for processing.
The project includes the following measures:;
– construction of a 20 km gas pipeline from BPS-1103 of Shershnevskoe field to Unva Preliminary Water Removal Facility (PWRF) to deliver APG to LLC ”PNGP”;
– construction of a mini gas-compressor station (GCS) at Unva PWRF for compression of low-pressure associated petroleum gas from TSUs No.1 and No.2 and for further delivery of collected APG to LLC “PNGP”.
The project measures will reduce GHG emissions, including carbon dioxide and methane, due to avoided inefficient soot flaring of APG at Shershnevskoe and Unvinskoe field.
The project is implemented at the fields developed by OJSC VTK in Tomsk Region and aimes to enhance benefitial use of APG at these oilfields.
The project includes construction of eleven APG-fuelled GEPPs with the overall installed capacity of 11.25 MW. The newly built GEPPs are designed to meet the auxiliary power demand of the oilfields operated by OJSC VTK. The project implementation would result in significant increase in beneficial utilization of APG and, consequently, in reduced methane emissions from APG flaring. Besides, electric power generation by the GEPPs will make it possible to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from grid power plants.
