GE Oil & Gas Bags Contract for BP's Tangguh Train 3 Project in West Papua
GE Oil & Gas secured a contract from BP plc to provide the liquefaction components for the third train of the Tangguh liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in West Papua, Indonesia, local daily the Jakarta Post said Wednesday.
Delivery of the liquefaction components -- supplied from its plant in Greenville, South Carolina -- is scheduled for mid-2018. GE will build and test the components in its facility in Florence, Italy prior to delivery to Indonesia.
GE Oil & Gas CEO and President of the Turbo Machinery Division Rod Christie said, as cited in Jakarta Post, that the processing capacity of Tangguh Train 3 was 3.8 million tons per annum (Mtpa), bringing the total supply of Tangguh LNG to 11.4 Mtpa.
The firm, which won the first and the second tender from BP to supply an identical facility for the Tangguh LNG project, invited its associate company, Imeco Inter Sarana, to join in the current project.
