 Abstract
Natural gas liquefaction process is essential to transport natural gas for long distances. Lots of compressors in this process are needed and the energy for these compressors can be supplied by drivers. Total driver cost can be changed by selecting various drivers. This study focused on the minimization of the driver cost to provide the energy to the compressors. Moreover, scenarios, extracting velocity is changed during whole operating period, are set with considering gas well capacity. The mathematical model was established by considering trade off relationship between the capital cost and the operating cost of the turbines. The model also considers the life time of the driver equipments. As the result, the driver cost of the optimized case was reduced by 6.4% than the base case.
