Dresser-Rand Awarded Generator Contract

Dresser-Rand has been awarded a contract to supply six gas turbine generator packages for use by the Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company Ltd. (KUFPEC). The equipment will be used to supply electric power to KUFPEC’s Seram Island Oseil oil production facilities in Indonesia.

Under the terms of the contract, Dresser-Rand will supply six KG2-3E gas turbine generator sets to Bokuk Electric Industrial Company of Daegu, South Korea. As an original equipment manufacturer for Dresser-Rand, Bokuk will manufacture the alternator and acoustic enclosure, perform full-load testing, and supply the fuel gas compressors with fuel gas treatment skids and piping for the units. The completed units will be shipped from Korea in December 2001.

KUFPEC’s field and main production facilities will each receive three units capable of generating 1,934 kW of shaft power under ISO conditions. The total project is scheduled for completion in March or April 2002, with production to begin in May.
