The industrial gas turbines will power 900-MMCFD offshore Central Processing Platform (CPP) for Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB), a Malaysia-based oil and gas exploration and production company.

The customer, Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE), has formed a joint venture with TechnipFMC to execute this work, with PCSB as the end user.

Once in production, the field will produce up to 900 million cubic feet per day of gas, which will be delivered to the Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak.

“Siemens Gas and Power is proud to be selected by MMHE in supporting PCSB’s project to supply our proven, robust SGT-300 gas turbines and DATUM compressors for their large-scale field projects,” said Thorbjoern Fors, CEO for Siemens Energy Oil & Gas Division.

“This new contract award follows our breakthrough year in 2018 in Malaysia when Siemens supplied three SGT-300 units after signing our Global Frame Agreement contract with Petronas in 2017.”

The three SGT-300 GTG units will have dual-fuel capability, and each turbine will have a power capacity of 7.9 megawatts electric at ISO condition. The units will provide the necessary power to the entire CPP that will process and export the natural gas.

The three SGT-300 mechanical drive gas turbines are designed to produce a power output of 9 megawatts at ISO condition. They will directly drive the DATUM compressors that will compress and export sales gas to the existing riser platform nearshore, before delivering gas to the LNG complex.

The core engine for each SGT-300 will be manufactured at the Siemens Gas Turbine Service Center in Lincoln, England, and the GTGs and gas turbine compressor train will be packaged and tested in Houston, Texas, US.

The units will be delivered to the customer in time for the planned startup of the CPP in the first quarter of 2023.
