GE Turbocompressors for Das Island LNG Complex
GE Oil & Gas has been awarded a contract to supply two gas turbine-driven turbocompressor trains to the Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Company (ADGAS). The equipment will be used for feed gas service to compress natural gas from the ADGAS Das Island LNG complex through a 200 km subsea pipeline to Ruwais and a 100 km onshore pipeline to the onshore Habshan plant managed by GASCO, where the gas will be processed.
The new turbocompressor trains will be driven by GE Frame 5D gas turbines, with each compression train including a low-pressure and a high-pressure casing. Each train also will be equipped with a waste heat recovery unit for steam production.
The equipment will be manufactured at GE Oil & Gas facilities in Florence, Italy and shipped to Das Island in August of 2008, following string testing. Installation, commissioning and start-up of the new trains are expected to take an additional 12 months, with commercial operation targeted for the fourth quarter of 2009.
