GE Oil & Gas awarded contract for BP’s Tangguh LNG facility

GE Oil & Gas (LSE:GEC) has been awarded a contract to supply gas turbine-driven compressors for a third natural gas train for the Tangguh liquefied natural gas (LNG) expansion in West Papua, Indonesia.

The Tangguh facility is being expanded to increase LNG production by an additional 3.8MMtpa, taking total plant capacity to 11.4MMtpa.

The majority of the gas generated by the third train will provide energy for the Indonesian domestic market.

Rod Christie, president and CEO of Turbo-machinery Solutions, GEO Oil & Gas said: “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.”

The components of the compressor strings supplied by GE Oil & Gas will be manufactured at GE facilities in Greenville, South Carolina, USA and Florence, Italy.

The equipment will be ready for shipping to Indonesia mid-2018.
