GE Turbocompressor Trains to Indonesian Gas Field
GE Oil & Gas announced it will supply Total E&P Indonesie with two gas turbine-driven turbocompressor trains for the Tunu Field Development Project, Phase 11 South, in the Mahakam Delta of East Kalimantan, Indonesia. Each train will include a PGT25 gas turbine with an LM2500 dry low emissions (DLE) gas generator, gear box and 2BCL608 centrifugal compressor. The power turbine and compressor will be manufactured at GE Oil & Gas facilities in Florence, Italy while the gas generator will be manufactured in Evendale, Ohio, U.S.A. The GE equipment is scheduled to be delivered to the project site in January of 2008, with commercial operation expected to begin by the third quarter of that year.
The Tunu 11 project is designed to boost the delivery of natural gas from the Tunu field to the PT Badak LNG plant in East Kalimantan, one of the world’s largest LNG facilities. Because this will be an offshore application, all main auxiliaries such as the acoustic enclosure, inlet air system and ventilation ducts will be manufactured of stainless steel material. The two trains will be fully assembled on single-lift skids and will undergo full load tests at GE Oil & Gas facilities in Massa, Italy. This project marks the fourth time GE has provided turbocompressor equipment to Total E&P for installation in the region.
The lead contractor for the new project is PT PAL of Surabaya, Indonesia. Based in Jakarta, Total E&P Indonesie is an affiliate of the French oil company, Total SA. Total E&P Indonesie’s operations include seven oil and gas fields and more than 500 production wells.
