GE Oil & Gas Develops Unique 60C Gas Turbine Generators for Rosneft Power Station at Vankor Oil Field

10 August 2009

GE Oil & Gas, a world leading company in oil and gas advanced technology equipment and services, announces that it has designed unique gas turbine generators that can operate in temperatures up to -60C for a power plant project at the Vankor oil field (Turukhansky district, Krasnoyarsk region) owned by Rosneft oil company.

undefined undefined undefined undefinedThe 210 MWt gas turbine power station at the Vankor oil field will become the only complete source of power and heat used for life support and oil and gas production, as well as part of the first stage of the oil field's launch into operation. Rosneft obtained licenses to explore the oil field in 2003.

To ensure reliable operation of the equipment in extreme climatic conditions, GE Oil & Gas has developed a special turbine design and used automated heating systems to transport and store the equipment on the site.

undefined undefined undefined undefinedThe gas turbine generators were delivered ahead of schedule under two contracts signed in December 2006 and May 2008. Four units were delivered to the customer in August 2007 and another four in March 2009. Under the contracts, GE will also train experts that will provide technical maintenance of the gas turbines on the site.
