GE awarded contract for Umm Lulu oilfield
GE Oil and Gas will supply the field operators with cutting edge gas turbine technology
GE Oil & Gas has signed a contract with National Petroleum Construction Company (NPCC) and France's Technip to provide gas turbine technology to ADMA OPCO’s Umm Lulu Full Field Development Project.
According to GE Oil & Gas officials, the company will supply the latest gas turbine generator sets, gas lift compressors and gas injection compressors.
Based on the PGT25+ aeroderivative gas turbine technology, the equipment will bring reduced maintenance cycle time, keep NOx at lower levels and increase flow capacity.
Ge also added that the package has "reliable compressors designed to meet the requirements of all segments in offshore development".
Rami Qasem, president and CEO of GE Oil & Gas, Middle East, North Africa and Turkey, said: “The contract to supply advanced turbomachinery equipment in plug-and-play modules for ADMA-OPCO further builds on our strong partnership with the organisation and our long-term presence in Abu Dhabi, where we have an installed base of over 700 rotating equipment.
"The modularised turbomachinery packages bring the cutting edge in GE’s innovative technology, assuring higher efficiency and reliability. They will contribute to increasing operational efficiencies in offshore development through the introduction of our latest aeroderivative technology to the region.”
The Umm Lulu Field, located 30 km northwest Abu Dhabi, is set to produce 100,000 bpd of crude oil, when fully developed.
The CEO of ADMA OPCO, Ali Jarwan, said the oilfield is strategically important to the emirate.
