GE O&G Confirms Deal to Supply Gas Compressors for Tangguh LNG Project

GE Oil & Gas provided Wednesday details on its contract with BP plc, as reported earlier by Rigzone, for the supply of gas components for the Tangguh liquefied natural gas (LNG) project in Papua Barat Province, Indonesia.

The firm will provide gas turbine-driven compressors for Train 3 in the Tangguh Expansion project after its Indonesian business partner PT Imeco Inter Sarana received the equipment order. GE Oil & Gas and Imeco also provided the original equipment for Tangguh Trains 1 and 2.

"The agreement to provide a third natural gas liquefaction train for Tangguh, nearly 15 years after the agreement to install the first two, is a reflection of the enduring performance of the existing plant machinery supplied by GE Oil & Gas," Rod Christie, president & CEO - Turbomachinery Solutions, GE Oil & Gas said in the press release.

The components of the turbo compressor strings supplied by GE Oil & Gas will be manufactured at its facilities in Greenville, South Carolina in the U.S. and Florence, Italy, where the train will by assembled and load tested. It will be fully digitally-enabled, including advanced sensors and monitoring capabilities to allow continuous equipment care to safely maximize availability ahead of shipment to Indonesia in mid-2018.

For the installation of Train 3, GE Oil & Gas will leverage its local footprint and global engineering capabilities to provide on-site support and develop local talent through training programs. GE Oil & Gas currently employs almost 200 employees across 3 sites in Indonesia.
