The invention is used in the field of pressure-intensifying stations of natural gas and oil pipelines. The essential character of the process according to the invention is that steam is produced in boilers heated with the outgoing flue gas of the gas turbines driving the compressors (pumps), the steam is conducted into steam turbine for driving further compressor(s), pump(s). Main feature of the equipment according to the invention is that the ratio of the simultaneously operating gas turbines and steam turbines may vary from the equivalent to tripple va...
A method of operating a pressure-intensifying station of a natural gas pipeline for increasing the capacity and energy efficiency thereof, said method comprising the steps of: (a) producing by combustion a hot driving gas and propelling a gas turbine coupled with a machine for pressurizing the natural gas of said pipeline with said driving gas, thereby energetically depleting said driving gas and forming a flue gas therefrom; (b) generating steam with said flue gas and propelling at least one steam turbine with the steam thus produced; (c) driving a furt...
