The objective of this paper is to discuss key considerations associated with selection of Gas Turbine Driven LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) Turbo Compressors. The selection of any compressor and the ultimate performance is greatly affected by the gas turbine driver chosen. The selection of gas turbine/compressor packages is even more critical when the compressor is to operate on refrigeration service such as in an LNG plant. The selection, performance and operation will be discussed for complete gas turbine compressor packages.
