RasGas awards gas turbine service deal

25 June 2008
US-based GE Oil & Gas has signed a multi-million-dollar contract with Ras Laffan Liquefied Natural Gas Company (RasGas) to service trains 6 and 7 of its liquefied natural gas (LNG) development and phase 2 of its Al-Khaleej gas development.

The deal covers 13 gas turbines to be used for compression and power-generation services on the facilities, in order to improve their reliability over the 24-year life of the service contract.

The new deal follows a series of earlier deals for GE on the first five trains of RasGas’ LNG and the first phase of Al-Khaleej. Train 6 is scheduled to come online later this year, with train 7 due in 2009.

RasGas currently produces about 20 million tonnes-a-year (t/y) of LNG from the five trains in operation. This is scheduled to hit 37 million t/y by the end of the decade.
