50-Foot Skid

When California Resources Corporation (formerly Occidental Petroleum) needed to get production started prior to the establishment of a permanent facility they engaged GE Oil & Gas to provide a solution. GE decided that a skidded power system that would run 4 – 700 horsepower surface pumps was the fastest way to get production running and engaged Tyrion Integration to help with a solution.

Tyrion Integration engineered and provided a 50′ skid that was designed to use Culter Hammer switchgear that fed four phase shift transformers, and four variable speed drives to power the four surface pumps. Tyrion Integration designed the entire skid to be powered from two portable 930kW generators to the skid to run the 4 pumps allowing CRC to start production much sooner than normal.
