On 10th of October 2013 in the Makat district of Atyrau region, a solemn ceremony took place and turbo compressor shop №4 of «Makat» compressor station on main gas pipeline «Central Asia-Center» was officially put into operation.


LLP Company "MunayGaz-Engineering" acted as the general contractor. Considering main principles of our company - development and implementation of new technologies in the reconstruction and operation of the gas transportation system, implementation of modern   devices, machinery and equipment which provide maximum reliability, efficiency and perfection of the process, technical practices of leading global companies such as: Solar Turbines, Siemens, MAN Turbo, General Electric together with famous Russian manufacturers were involved in this project.

Compressor station "Makat" - one of the nodal stations on the gas transportation system of Kazakhstan.

The gas flow between the main pipelines «Central Asia - Center" and "Makat - North Caucasus" is redistributed  over here, before transportation of natural gas from Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan to different Kazakhstan regions as well as to European countries through the territory of Russia.

Reconstructed new workshop consists of 7 American-made gas compressor units.   The capacity of each compressor - 28.2 mcm / day.  Annual capacity - 56.7 bcm. The inlet gas pressure - 5.2 MPa, and the output - 7.5 MPa.

Therefore, after commissioning of turbo compressor shop in Makat: the volume, reliability and efficiency, industrial and environmental safety of the gas transportation system are increased, stability for a huge transit gas flow on main pipelines "Central Asia - Center" and "Makat - North Caucasus» is guaranteed for several decades.
