Project details

Neptune has been supplying the UK with gas from the Cygnus field since 2016. We are now installing a gas compression unit, as originally specified in the Cygnus Field Development Project.

The compression unit is being installed on the Cygnus Process Unit platform in a two-train 50-50 configuration. Each train consists of a suction cooler, a KO drum, a compressor, a discharge cooler and a nitrogen back-up seal gas system.

Project completion is scheduled for early in 3Q 2019. First hydrocarbons will be processed at the start of 2H 2019.
