Siemens To Provide Maintenance For Australian Project
Siemens Energy has received a contract to provide long-term maintenance services for the Santos GLNG Project in Queensland, Australia. The multi-million dollar service order is Siemens’ largest for its small gas turbine (SGT) product line, the company said.
The customer is Santos GLNG, which is a joint venture between Santos, Petronas, Total and KOGAS. The six-year contract includes preventative maintenance, remote monitoring, parts supply and field service for 16 SGT-400 industrial gas turbines (nine generator sets and seven compressor sets) spread across three Santos GLNG sites – Roma and Fairview 1 & 2.
The Santos GLNG Project is designed to convert coal seam gas (CSG) to liquefied natural gas (LNG) for export to global markets.
The Santos GLNG Project includes the development of CSG resources in the Bowen and Surat Basins in southeast Queensland, construction of a 420 km underground gas transmission pipeline from the gas fields to Gladstone, and two LNG trains with a combined nameplate capacity of 7.1 million tonnes per annum on Curtis Island. The first LNG exports are expected to commence in 2015.
