Rolls-Royce Announces O&G Contracts

Posted on October 14, 2007

Rolls-Royce, a provider of power systems and services, has signed contracts worth more than US$64 million to supply RB211-powered gas compression packages to Shell, ExxonMobil and Woodside Energy for use on offshore production platforms. The units will be operating offshore Australia, Malaysia and Nigeria and will join existing Rolls-Royce industrial gas turbines already in service with these companies. The largest contract, for three RB211-GT61 packages, from Woodside Energy of Australia, is for the continuing development of their North West Shelf venture, the country’s largest resource project.

The company has also signed a contract valued at more than $24 million to supply BP with two gas turbine mechanical drive packages for use at the Dimlington onshore compression facility on the east coast of England. The two RB211-GT61 Dry Low Emissions (DLE) gas turbines will be an integral part of a £125 million investment BP is making in its southern North Sea business to increase recoverable gas reserves and create opportunities for further offshore development.
