GE Oil & Gas To Supply Petrofac
GE Oil & Gas won a contract valued at approximately US$36 million to supply Petrofac with turbo compression equipment for Groupement Berkin's El Merk central processing facility in the Berkin Basin of Algeria. Petrofac is a global provider of services to oil and gas companies.
The project will feature GE's BCL centrifugal compressors for handling high-pressure sour gas reinjection. GE's scope of supply includes three turbo-compressors for gas injection and two turbo-compressors for residue gas service, along with three motor compressors for gas booster service and three for associated gas services.
The turbo compressors will be manufactured at GE Oil & Gas facilities in Florence, Italy, and will start to be shipped to the project site in September 2010, while the motor-compressors will be built in Le Creusot, France, and shipped to Algeria in September 2010. When the new CPF plant enters service, in phases starting late 2011, it will have a capacity of 98 000 barrels per day of crude oil, 28 800 barrels per day of condensate and 31 000 barrels per day of liquefied petroleum gas.
