Rolls-Royce Going With The Flow

Company to supply equipment, services to aid West-East Pipeline Project

Posted on January 16, 2013

Rolls-Royce has received a US$75million contract to supply PetroChina with equipment and related services to power the flow of natural gas through Line 3 of the West-East Pipeline Project (WEPP).

Rolls-Royce will supply PetroChina with an additional six RB211-driven pipeline compressor units, bringing the total number of RB211 units sold for installation on China and Central Asia’s natural gas pipeline network to 56.

When completed in 2015, the 7000 km WEPP Line 3 will link China’s western Xinjiang autonomous region to Fuijan province in the southeast, transporting up to 30 Bm3 of gas per year.

Rolls-Royce, which has provided equipment to WEPP since 2004, will manufacture and package the equipment at its energy facilities in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and Mount Vernon, Ohio, U.S.A.
