Dresser-Rand compressors to handle OCTP gas offshore Ghana
Siemens’ Dresser-Rand business has won a contract to supply two compressor trains to an onshore gas reception facility in Ghana.
This will be supplied by non-associated gas from Eni’s Offshore Cape Three Points (OCTP) project: once onshore, the gas will undergo further compression for delivery into Ghana’s national network.
Eni Ghana commissioned the DATUM compressors, the first supplied by Dresser-Rand to be driven by a Siemens gas turbine.
The two compressors are expected to be delivered in September and October 2017 with the plants expected to be fully operational in February 2018.
The centrifugal compressors, model D10R8B, to be driven by Siemens SGT-400 gas turbines, will be manufactured in Le Havre, northern France, with Dresser-Rand’s Hengelo facility in the Netherlands coordinating engineering, packaging, and testing of the equipment.
