GE to Supply Oil Field Expansion Project
Saudi Aramco has selected GE technology for the Southern Area Seawater Capacity Expansion Project in Ghawar, the world’s largest oil field, and the Khurais oil field. GE’s Oil & Gas business will supply 12 mechanical drive packages, including seven driven by MS5002C gas turbines and five by MS5002D gas turbines. The expansion project is designed to help increase Saudi Aramco’s production.
The equipment will be manufactured at GE Oil & Gas facilities in Florence, Italy and shipped to the project sites in 2007, with commercial operation expected to begin in 2008. The GE contract also includes spare parts and training.
