The compressor installation 2VМ10-24/81 was developed for the use in cryogenic air-separating installations. The important advantage of it is the unitized design. In addition, the installation can be applied in making mobile complexes for methanol production which will be used as a hydrate inhibitor directly in the natural gas fields. At the same time the expenses for methanol delivery from manufacturers are excluded. It is especially important for remote natural gas fields. For some gas fields of Western Siberia the cost of methanol is 4-6 times higher than that of manufacturer. It should also be taken into account that methanol is a poisonous and an explosive substance which requires expensive transportation. The reciprocating compressor installation 2VМ10-24/81 for use in a methanolic hydrate inhibitor production is considered.
