With an estimated
recoverable gas resource circa three trillion standard cubic feet (TSCF), the
Kasawari field is one of the most significant gas discoveries in Malaysia. Once
in production, the field will produce up to 900 million cubic feet per day (MMCFD)
of gas, which will be delivered to the PETRONAS LNG Complex in Bintulu,
three SGT-300 GTG units will have dual-fuel capability. Each turbine will have
a power capacity of 7.9 megawatts electric (MWe) at ISO condition. The units
will provide the necessary power to the entire CPP that will process and export
the natural gas. Power demands include living quarters and electrical utilities
for all process systems and wellheads.
three SGT-300 mechanical drive gas turbines are designed to produce a power
output of 9 megawatts (MW) 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.
SGT-300 is a robust, proven gas turbine used for power generation and
mechanical drive applications throughout the world. The turbine is most
renowned for its use in the oil and gas industry and is a popular choice
because of its compact arrangement, easy on-site maintainability, and
SGT-300 GTG also has a high-efficiency, an innovative dry low emissions (DLE)
combustion system and more than 7 million hours of operating experience worldwide.
other gas turbines on the market, the SGT-300 GTG offers a lower life cycle
cost, particularly a longer overhaul interval, as well as higher reliability.
core engine for each SGT-300 will be manufactured at the Siemens Gas Turbine
Service Center in Lincoln, United Kingdom, and the GTGs and gas turbine
compressor train will be packaged and tested in Houston, Texas, USA. The units
will be delivered to the customer in time for the planned startup of the CPP in
“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.”
