Siemens to Supply Compressor Trains for Projects in Qatar, Nigeria
Siemens Power Generation (PG) has received two orders for compressor trains for oil and gas projects in Qatar and Nigeria. Five gas turbine-driven compressor trains are destined for the Danish company Maersk Oil Qatar AS, Qatar. Two gensets and three power generation trains were ordered by Daewoo E&C of South Korea for a project in Nigeria. The total order value is approximately EUR120 million.
Siemens PG will supply five compressor trains for the Block 5 of the Al Shaheen offshore facilities in Qatar. Each train comprises a STC-SV compressor driven by an SGT-700 gas turbine. Maersk Oil Qatar and Qatar Petroleum (QP) have jointly planned the further development of the Al Shaheen Field Block 5, first commenced in 1994. As part of the development plan, Maersk Oil Qatar will build and operate facilities for gathering and delivery of associated gas to Qatar Petroleum. Qatar Petroleum will also utilize the gas for their plants located in Mesaieed.
For the integrated Oil and Gas project Gbaran/Ubie in Nigeria, Siemens PG has secured an order from Daewoo E&C of South Korea. The equipment will be supplied to Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria (SPDC). The order encompasses two gas turbine-driven STC-SV compressor trains and three power generation trains including generators.
"More and more our customers expect a single source supplier. With our balanced portfolio we are able to offer full compressor train competence and meet the customer demands," said Ralf Kannefass, Head of the Oil & Gas Business for Siemens Power Generation Oil & Gas and Industrial Applications.
