Angola LNG Plant Ensuring Gas Supply through GE Service Agreement
(PressMethod) - Angola LNG, operator of one of the world's most modern LNG and processing facilities in Soyo, Zaire Province in Angola, and GE Oil & Gas (GE) have signed a long-term contractual service agreement (CSA) designed to increase overall plant efficiency and provide maximum availability for the key gas compression equipment. GE announced the agreement today at World Gas Conference 2012 in Kuala Lumpur.
Angola LNG, a major LNG producer with operations in Angola and the United States, is a consortium composed of some of the world's leading oil and gas companies including Sonangol, which has a 22.8 percent share; and affiliates of Chevron (36.4 percent), Total (13.6 percent), BP (13.6 percent) and ENI (13.6 percent). The Soyo LNG facility, located 315 kilometers north of Luanda, will ship the first LNG cargo this quarter and will produce approximately 5.2 million tons of LNG and related gas liquid products per year.
The CSA will cover two GE gas turbine-driven compression trains—including additional plant equipment—ensuring continuous technical assistance and an on-site team of highly skilled GE Field Services Engineers, applying effective maintenance approaches and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) spare parts to optimize performance and maximize mean time between maintenance. A local contractual performance manager at the site will oversee the day-to-day service operations.
