A typical gas storage facility is a long-term investment that relies heavily on the efficient and reliable operation of multiple high horsepower reciprocating compressors. The compressors must be capable of operating at a very wide range of operating conditions and flows. An additional factor is that gas control demands may dictate that a unit starts and stops a number of times in a single day. This paper looks at a number of the vibration and performance design aspects of a multi-recip compressor storage facility and provides suggestions for initial layout and goals for the necessary design studies. Some of the issues discussed are common sense approaches to pulsation filtering considering of extremes in compressor loading and unit and piping layout and support strategies to avoid vibration interaction between units and with operators and instrumentation.
