GE snaps up PNG LNG work

GE Oil & Gas has secured contracts to supply equipment and long-term service to the $US15 billion ($A16.8 billion) PNG LNG project.

Under the supply contract, GE will provide gas turbines and centrifugal compressors for two liquefied natural gas trains at the Hides gas conditioning plant, while the service contract covers the maintenance of 13 turbo compressor trains.

Gas for the PNG LNG project will be treated at the Hides gas conditioning plant before it is transported by pipeline to the proposed 6.6 million tonne per annum LNG plant, located about 20 kilometres northwest of Port Moresby.

First production from the two train PNG LNG project is expected in 2014.

The value of the contracts was not disclosed.
