Tangguh LNG awards second compressor train contract in Indonesia

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, July 22 -- Tangguh LNG partners have awarded GE Energy a contract to supply a second compressor train for the project in Bintuni Bay Regency, Papua Province, Indonesia.

Last year, GE was selected to supply the first compressor train for the project. When both trains are completed, the new facility, which is owned by BP Tangguh LNG Indonesia, will have a gas liquefaction capacity of at least 7 million tonnes/year of LNG.

GE Energy's Florance, Italy-based oil and gas unit will supply the two main refrigerant turbo compressor strings for the second compressor train. The mixed refrigerant string will include one low-pressure axial compressor and one medium-pressure centrifugal compressor. The propane string will include one low-pressure and one high-pressure barrel centrifugal compressor.

The turbo compressor strings are slated for shipment in 2005.
