The flexibility of reciprocating compressors combined with the utilization of variable speed drives like gas turbines optimizes operating and capital investment costs in natural gas services. Reliability and respect for limits specified in pollution control regulations are the most significant requirements related to modern compression stations. Equipped with monitoring systems, the trains must benefit by special design procedures and modern full-load test facilities to ensure the complete confidence of users.

The above features, together with energy saving advantages, make it possible to forecast the increasing application of compressor - turbine arrangements.
