Angola LNG, GE Sign Contractual Service Agreement
Angola LNG, operator of the LNG and processing facilities in Soyo, Zaire Province in Angola, and GE Oil & Gas have signed a long-term contractual service agreement (CSA) designed to increase overall plant efficiency and provide maximum availability for key gas compression equipment.
Angola LNG, an LNG producer with operations in Angola and the United States, is a consortium composed of oil and gas companies such as Sonangol (22.8% share); and affiliates of Chevron (36.4%), Total (13.6%), BP (13.6%) and ENI (13.6%).
The Soyo LNG facility, located 315 km north of Luanda, will ship the first LNG cargo this quarter and produce 4.7 million tonnes of LNG and related gas liquid products per year, GE said.
The CSA will cover two GE gas turbine-driven compression trains – including additional plant equipment – ensuring continuous technical assistance and an on-site team of GE field services engineers. A local contractual performance manager at the site will oversee the day-to-day service operations, according to GE.
