work in parallel with other
diesel generator sets.
Gas generator power plant in the Ecuadorian Amazon
by the Napo River (a tributary of the Amazon River), the Block 43 oil
extraction zone is a large oil field located in Ecuadorian Amazon, in the
eastern part of the province of Orellana, to the west of Ecuador. Its certified
oil reserves amount to 1,672 million barrels, equivalent to approximately 41%
of the country's crude oil reserves; this means that this extractive region has
been declared an area of National Interest by Ecuador's National Assembly.
by Petroamazonas EP, it is estimated that the Block 43 project will reach its
maximum production level in six years' time, with an approximate extraction
level of 330,000 barrels of oil per day. This project has been developed using
the most advanced technology and environmental measures, minimising the
environmental impact on the Amazon ecosystem; this includes directional and horizontal drilling, which make it possible to use a smaller
drilling surface by placing several wells on the same platform.
With the aim of contributing to sustainable development, HIMOINSA, through Energy Solutions, has designed an power plant powered by wellhead gas, with 5MW (COP), integrated with the other diesel power plants.
sets that reduce carbon, CO2 and NOx emissions.
generator sets that use the associated gas generated by the crude oil
extraction process itself as a source of energy, thus converting waste that is
harmful to the environment into energy.

well as fire, ATEX gas leakage and vibration sensors.
a Woodward Easygen control panel, the gensets are controlled by the oil plant
and can operate individually or in parallel with other diesel plants, depending
on the power requirements of the complex.

The project objective has been twofold: On the one hand, to provide continuous power to meet the growing power needs of the extraction plant, in parallel with other existing diesel generators; on the other hand, to reduce the flaring released by the crude extraction process itself, preserving the natural environment of the site.
From the beginning of the project, generator sets were required that were designed to withstand the extreme conditions of heat and humidity typical of the Amazon jungle, adhering
to the compliance requirements of the extraction plant itself.
In this project, the key objective for HIMOINSA has been to offer an innovative solution that offers the perfect balance between performance, power, safety and environmental sustainability; generator sets with high power engines, driven by associated gas, connected in parallel to generate 5 MW of constant power to the plant.
These generators have been installed inside bespoke containers that are insulated against heat and humidity, as well as incorporating multiple safety sensors and a watertight container specially designed to avoid any expulsion of fluids to the outside.
This project has posed a great challenge for two reasons: A very low quality gas supply and adverse environmental conditions. We managed to solve both problems satisfactorily, helping to reduce considerably emissions from the associated gas flaring, thus helping to preserve the environment of the Amazon rainforest.
engines with high mechanical resistance have been used, capable of generating
975kW of continuous power, fuelled by a gas with very low compressibility and
reduced levels of particle, NOx, SOx and CO2 emissions.
plant is managed by Woodward Easygen control
panels which allow it to operate independently or in parallel with the rest of the diesel plants installed in the oil field.
