GE Oil & Gas Supplying Compressor Trains To Petronas
Monday, September 24, 2012
GE Oil & Gas will supply its gas turbine-driven compressor train technology to Malaysia’s national oil and gas company Petronas for a floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility that is being developed off the coast of Malaysia.
GE’s compression trains are vital elements of the liquefaction process, which cools natural gas to a liquid state. GE’s scope of supply includes four of its PGT25+G4 gas turbine generator systems, two PGT25+G4 gas turbine driven compressor units and two electric motor driven centrifugal compressors modules. GE is scheduled to deliver its equipment to Malaysia in August 2013.
The start-up of the FLNG facility is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2015. It will be moored about 180 km off the coast of Bintulu, Sarawak, and is designed to produce 1.1 million T/yr of LNG. Once on stream, the facility will boost Malaysia’s total LNG production capacity to 24.4 million T/yr from 23.3 million T/yr currently.
