Underground Gas Storage Project in Turkey
  • Background
    The one-billion-cubic-meter underground natural gas reservoir was a result of partnership between China and Turkey, and a project undertaken by contractor China Tianchen Engineering Corporation. It was Turkey’s first salt cavern gas storage project, as well as the world's largest single-cavity salt cavern gas storage at present. In general, work was carried out to pump down fresh water through the borehole in order to dissolve the salt bed. Then the brine was extracted to form a cavity. At last, natural gas was injected into the cavity and the remaining brine was squeezed out.
  • Our Solution
    Our Solution
    In order to inject natural gas and withdraw brine in a one-billion-cubic-meter cavern, Jereh offered the compressor package solution after conducting a professional analysis of the information about the volume and working conditions. The unit was the combination of a Waukesha 12V275GL+ engine and an Ariel KBU/6 compressor, along with redundancy control and safety chain systems developed on our own. As such way, the peak shaving in winter as well as the safe and stable operation of the compressor under various working conditions could be ensured.
