GE Gas Turbines Supplying Power To Oil & Gas Company In Russia
LUKOIL, an oil and gas company, will use GE’s aeroderivative technology to provide additional energy for its operations in Astrakhan, Russia. Four GE LM6000-PF dual fuel dry-low emissions (DLE) Sprint aeroderivative gas turbines will help provide heat and power for LUKOIL’s operations in the region. These new turbines, which run on diesel and natural gas, will join two LM6000s that began service for LUKOIL in Astrakhan on April 26.
The LM6000-PF dual fuel DLE gives it the capability to operate at low emissions levels in gas or liquid fuels without the need for water injection, GE said. The LM6000-PF reduces CO2 emissions by 15 000 metric tons, reduces gas consumption by over 278 000 GJ, reduces NOx emissions by 360 000 Kg and saves 37 400 m³ of water yearly, according to GE.
The CO2 emissions reduction is the equivalent of removing 7600 cars from E.U. roads and water savings is the equivalent to filling 15 Olympic-size swimming pools every year.
