The use of a small industrial gas turbine with a matching gas compressor has produced a compressor set which has become a leader in the natural gas pipeline industry. This paper describes the design of one of these sets including details of the gas compressor. While accumulating nearly 4,000,000 hr operating time, these sets have proved to be very flexible in operation. They are used in five continents over an extreme range of environments and gas compression services. Some of these installations are described in detail.
