Rolls-Royce Sells More RB211s

Two more compressor units on way to vital China pipeline


Published:

Rolls-Royce received a US$28 million contract to supply PetroChina with equipment and services to expand the flow of natural gas through the Lunnan – Tulufan branch of the second West to East Pipeline Project (WEPP II).

Rolls-Royce will supply PetroChina with an additional two RB211 gas turbine driven pipeline compressor units, bringing the total number of RB211 units sold for installation on China and Central Asia’s natural gas pipeline network to 70.

The Lunnan – Tulufan pipeline branch transports 600 Bcfy (17 X 109 m3/yr) of gas and connects Lines I and II of WEPP that links China’s western Xinjiang region to Fujian province in the southeast. WEPP transports up to 1.6 Tcfy (47 X 109 m3/yr) 47 billion m3/yr of gas.
