HOUSTON, Feb. 2
-- Qatar Petroleum has let a contract to Cegelec of Paris to replace, over the next 18 months the turbine and compressor control system for two NGL production trains in Mesaieed, Qatar.

Under the $15 million contract, an integrated GE-Mark VI system will replace the existing pneumatic control system for Trains 1 and 2, the Cegelec announcement said. In addition, the existing fire-protection system will be replaced with a water-mist system interfaced with the new control system.

This contract follows an earlier $40 million turnkey contract awarded to Cegelec to design and build a blast-proof control building at the QAPCO petrochemical complex, also in Mesaieed.

Cegelec has also provided technical assistance and commissioning for Phase 2 of the common water-cooling system in Ras Laffan, where the end customer was QP.
