MSI Kazakhstan, in cooperation with Quorex, its sister company in Geneva, has increased its engineering capabilities year on year since the company was started over 10 years ago.
The focus is on natural gas compression, gas treatment and power generation applications. MSI offers a wide range of engineering solutions. They include but are not limited to (a) new unit design, (b) re-engineering existing equipment for new applications, (c) retrofitting & modernizing through the use of improved equipment/technical solutions.
All leading to improved plant and equipment reliability / performance.
Project Audit & Control
In 2013/14, our client had purchased three (3) large compressors packages from a fabricator in China, but was not familiar with the engineering design, calculations nor quality assurance.
MSI in conjunction with Quorex, its Geneva based sister company, provided the engineering consulting services with the necessary audit and critical design review to ensure the package not only would perform to it's potential, but would also meet the stringent specifications of the end user in Kazakhstan.
MSI and Quorex are actively involved in the supply of new compression equipment. Based on an extensive experience of gas compressors in remote and harsh working conditions, we ensure practical yet state of the art technical solutions.
MSI proposes turnkey solutions. It proposes & designs the most adapted and economical technical solutions, engineers the selected equipment, supervises the construction/packaging, takes responsibility for the supply of the new compression equipment and its commissioning on site. The applications MSI and Quorex are working on are for gas gathering, boosting & injection and pipeline gas compression.
Compressor Package Design & Build
MSI is in the business of supplying new modular compressor sets for gas gathering, boosting, injection and other applications. We can design solutions around GOST, ASME and other common industrial standards.
In 2017, MSI with Quorex have taken responsibility for the complete construction of three booster compressors to be used for Central Asia. The solution proposed was the most cost competitive, considered the most flexible, while remaining compliant with stringent local standards.
The project is on track for delivery ahead of the originally anticipated schedule. To date, the customer has not faced any cost adders versus the original contracted scope & price.
Wellhead Compression Rental
Wellhead compressors can solve liquid loading issues in aging wells, allowing wells to produce for an additional length of time. It is simple and be very cost effective in selected well conditions.
Outright purchasing a new compressor package, albeit small, does not always make sense for the limited production period left.
MSI offers wellhead compressor rental services, allowing producers to benefit from the residual oil and gas in their mature fields. Wellhead compression rental eliminates the need for an initial investment required for the purchase of a new compressor set.
Critical gas engine equipment had been in operation in a desert climate for over 15 years. Availability was below 65%. MSI with Quorex have been supporting certain end users directly for many years, and in this instance provided the required Altronic parts and expertise to completely upgrade the control systems. A limitation to the Air/Fuel ratio, ignition timing and overall monitoring of the engines had meant that detonation was a common problem in summertime. The control systems made all the difference, and availability is now at 97+%.
