Dresser-Rand Brings Compressors To The Gulf

Dresser-Rand, part of Siemens Power and Gas division, received an order from BP to provide rotating equipment for the Mad Dog 2 project in the Gulf of Mexico.

The scope of supply comprises two DATUM compressor trains driven by Siemens electric motors (with variable speed gearboxes included) for export gas service. The equipment is scheduled to ship in 2018, with oil production of the platform expected to begin late in 2021.

Dresser-Rand, a supplier to BP since 2000, will supply two low-pressure D6A4S and two high-pressure D6R9B compressors. The company has provided equipment to many Gulf projects, such as Mad Dog (Phase I), Thunder Horse and Atlantis. Over the years, Dresser-Rand has delivered nearly 50 compressors to BP, half of which were used in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Mad Dog field, discovered in 1998, began production in 2005. Mad Dog 2 will be a new floating production platform with the capacity to produce up to 140,000 barrels of crude oil per day from up to 14 production wells.
