LNG Exploration and Production, Floating Production Units

Gas, Water Injection & Gas Storage Units
Gas compression is a critical operation in the Oil & Gas production chain. Therefore reliability is a
key factor in the design of GE Energy natural gas compressors.
GE Energy has delivered over 200 compressor trains for gas reinjection and gas storage
applications. Of the more than 380 casings supplied, 105 have a design pressure higher than
7,200 psia (500 bar a). Our many years of experience in designing, manufacturing, installing and
servicing these machines has validated GE Energy designs and production processes. Reliability
of this rotating equipment is directly related to rotor stability and impeller integrity throughout
the entire envelope of operating conditions and GE Energy machinery has been successfully
proven by long years of service under the challenging conditions found in the Oil & Gas Industry.
The high level of power involved in these compression applications requires gas turbines as
drivers. GE Energy provides a complete range of mechanical drive gas turbines that are ideally
matched to Oil & Gas applications. The extensive use of the GE MS6001 and MS7001EA single
shaft gas turbine technology for LNG mechanical drive applications is a result of our plant
integration services and the ability to optimize the design of both the gas turbine and the
compressor for these applications. The result is flawless performance of turbocompressors that
have accumulated more than 100,000 hours of operation in the largest LNG plants in the world.
The ability of GE Energy to integrate, test and deliver the entire turbocompressor train is a great
advantage to the Customer in terms of optimization of the system performance, delivery time
and the efficiency of working with a single supplier.
