Gas Treatment Unit Portovaya

Before gas from the northern Russian gas fields can flow into the Nord Stream Pipeline system, it is treated at the Portovaya gas treatment unit (GTU). The facility is located at the Compression Station Portovaya near Vyborg in Russia. The GTU of the Compressor Station Portovaya removes condensate or gas hydrates, which occur under certain pressure and temperature conditions. The unit is designed to dehydrate up to 170 million cubic meters of natural gas daily. Following treatment, gas flows into the compressor area, and is brought up to the requisite pressure, after which it is subjected to fiscal measurement and fed into Nord Stream.
