Kuala Lumpur: GE Oil & Gas will supply its gas turbine-driven compressor train and mechanical drive technology to Malaysia’s national oil and gas company, Petronas, for a second floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility that is being developed off the coast of East Malaysia.
The latest project marks another major order with Petronas under a global frame agreement for equipment supply between the two companies.
GE will supply four of its PGT25+G4 gas turbine generator systems and two nitrogen trains featuring two LM6000-PF+ 2BCL907 aeroderivative gas turbines in mechanical-drive mode. Commercial operation is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2017.
Once operational in the first quarter of 2018, the second FLNG facility will produce about 1.5m tons a year (mtpa) of LNG. [14/11/14]
