A turbine-compressor train consisting of a General Electric MS5001 Model R single-shaft gas turbine, a Philadelphia Gear speed-increasing gearbox, and a Dresser-Clark centrifugal compressor was uprated for 30% increased gas throughput. This train is one of thirteen units operated by ARCO Alaska, Inc. for high pressure natural gas injection service in Alaska’s Prudhoe Bay Oil Field. The uprate included an in-place conversion of the gas turbine from a Model R to a Model P configuration. This paper describes the engineering, planning, and implementation activities that led up to the successful uprate of this train with only a 24 day equipment outage.
