Wood Group Kenny company MSi Kenny has been awarded a contract by Gazprom Avtomatizatsiya (Gazprom) to provide a modelling subsystem for the Portovaya compressor station (CS Portovaya) on the Russian coast of the Baltic Sea. The compressor station is part of the Gryazovets - Vyborg gas trunkline, which will improve gas supply in Russia's Northwest region and feed Russian gas to Europe via the Nord Stream pipeline.

The modelling subsystem will comprise an engineering and operations simulator (EOS) for offline simulation and a gas management system (GMS) for monitoring and optimizing compressor station operations to meet operational requirements for the Nord Stream pipeline. The project will result in the most geographically extensive gas transmission simulation models ever to be implemented by MSi Kenny, and will be based on an expanded version of the modelling software used by the Nord Stream Pipeline Company. This will enable Gazprom to optimize compressor operations while still achieving optimal pipeline inventory and operating conditions.

''The 366 megawatt Portovaya compressor station will secure gas transmission across the 1200 km length of the Nord Stream Pipeline and eliminates the need for additional compressor stations,'' stated Michael Mai, president and CEO of MSi Kenny. ''MSi Kenny is pleased to be developing the modelling subsystem that will help to ensure its safe and efficient operation, which will be critical to ensuring consistent supply of Russian gas to Europe and Northwest Russia.''
