-- PlusPetrol Peru Corp. SA let a $32 million contract to GE Oil & Gas to supply compression and reinjection upgrade equipment to boost output of the Malvinas NGL processing plant, 400 km from Lima at the southern section of the Peruvian Amazon rainforest. The plant currently has a capacity of 450 MMcfd of gas and throughput of 220 MMcfd.

GE will upgrade two existing GE Frame-5C dry low Nox (DLN) gas turbine modules with Frame-5D DLN technology to reduce emissions and an Extendor kit to reduce outages and extend the life of the equipment. In addition, three existing Frame-5D DLN modules will be upgraded with Extendor kits.

The equipment was manufactured in Florence and shipped to Peru in March.
