GE Selected for Compressor Upgrade Project
GE Energy's oil and gas business was selected to upgrade three propane compressors at the Malaysia Liquefied Natural Gas (MLNG) Dua plant in Bitulu, Sarawak, Malaysia. The US$18 million agreement represents one of the largest single-source upgrade contracts won by the GE oil and gas business to date. The upgrade at MLNG Dua, one of three facilities in the Petronas LNG Complex, is expected to add 1.3 million tons per year of capacity to the current MLNG Dua production of 7.8 million tons per year.
The compressor upgrade work will be performed at GE Energy's oil and gas facilities in Florence, Italy, with the units to undergo testing at the company's Massa, Italy shop. The three upgraded compressor modules will be ready to be delivered to the MLNG project site in January of 2007, 2008 and 2009, respectively.
