Rolls-Royce Gas Contract
Three turbine-driven compressor units to power gas to China
Rolls-Royce has won a US$40 million contract to supply equipment and related services to power the flow of natural gas through the Uzbekistan section of the Turkmenistan-China natural gas pipeline.
Rolls-Royce will supply Asia Trans Gas (ATG LLC), a joint venture between Uzbekistan's Uzbekneftegaz and China’s National Petroleum Corporation, with three RB211 gas turbine driven pipeline compressor units for operation at a compressor station on the 530 km Uzbekistan section of the 1830 km Turkmenistan-China natural gas pipeline.
The Uzbekistan section of the Turkmenistan-China natural gas pipeline will transport 25 billion m3/yr of gas from Turkmenistan, through Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, to China, helping to stabilize China’s energy consumption with cleaner natural gas.
Rolls-Royce will manufacture and package the equipment at its energy facilities in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and Mount Vernon, Ohio, U.S.A.
