Asia Gas Pipeline lets contract for Kazakhstan compression

Asia Gas Pipeline LLP (AGP) has let a contract to Rolls-Royce for the supply of 12 RB211 gas-turbine driven pipeline compressor units for four compressor stations along Kazakhstan’s 1,115-km Line C Gas Pipeline, part of the 1,833-km Central Asia-China Gas Pipeline network.

When it reaches full capacity in 2016, the Central Asia-China Gas Pipeline network will transport as much as 55 billion cu m/year from Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan, through Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, to China. The Line C Pipeline will contribute up to 25 billion cu m/year of this capacity, including the potential to supply gas inside Kazakhstan.

Rolls-Royce in 2009 won contracts from AGP for eleven RB211 for its Line A and B pipelines. Earlier this year, PetroChina let a contract to Rolls-Royce for the supply of six RB211-driven compressor units for use on its Third West-East Pipeline Project (WEPP 3), bringing the total sold for use on the China-Central Asia network to 56 at that time. Line C will connect with WEPP 3 (OGJ Online, Jan. 17, 2013).

AGP, a joint venture of Kazakhstan's KazMunaiGaz and China's National Petroleum Corp., spent $175 million on the purchase. Rolls-Royce will manufacture and package the equipment for Line C in Montreal, Que., and Mount Vernon, Ohio.
