Speaker: Salvatore Micali, Senior Engineer, Aker Solutions





Subsea Compression Technology, Salvatore Micali

After several years of design, quali cation and testing, today subsea compression technology is an economically feasible solution to compensate the gas reservoir pressure depletion.

This presentation will show the traditional subsea gas compression technology applied on the projects under execution (Ormen Lange subsea compression pilot and Åsgard subsea compression sta on) and the new system concepts under development for compact and ultra-long step-out applications.

Salvatore Micali works as a Senior Engineer for the Subsea Power & Power department of Aker Solutions in Oslo, Norway, where he focuses on concept development and tendering activities of subsea compression systems. He is involved in the assessment of new subsea power, process and compressor applications.

Mr Micali holds a BS and MS in Electrical Engineering from the Catania University, Italy. He has more than 6 years experience from the Oil & Gas industry focusing on compression and turbomachinery equipment and systems. Before starting in Aker Solutions, Salvatore worked 4 years at GE Oil & Gas in the Turbo machinery
department in Florence, Italy.
