Alliance Engineering awarded compressor station expansion project

January 2010 Vol. 237 No. 1


Wood Group’s Alliance Engineering announced Jan. 12 that it has been awarded a contract to provide engineering, design and procurement support services for the expansion of Compressor Station 420, part of the Gulfstream Natural Gas System in Florida. The expansion at the existing compressor station includes a gas turbine-driven compressor unit, a compressor building extension, pipeline and process connections, and utility systems as necessary for the operation of the new compressor unit. Installation of the new compressor unit at the existing facility is scheduled to be completed in 2011.

Alliance President Edmund Lunde said, “This project will allow us to apply our fit-for-purpose compressor station design expertise to another compressor station on the Gulfstream Natural Gas System, which in turn will allow Gulfstream to increase pipeline capacity while maximizing facility operating efficiencies.”
