ADGAS, which is part of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company, is one of the largest processors of LNG in the Middle East
GE Oil & Gas has been awarded a contract to supply two gas turbine-driven Turbocompressor trains to the Abu Dhabi Gas Liquefaction Company (ADGAS).
The equipment will be used for feed gas service to compress natural gas from the ADGAS Das Island LNG complex through a 200-kilometer subsea pipeline to Ruwais and a 100-kilometer onshore pipeline to the onshore Habshan plant managed by GASCO, where the gas will be processed.
Das Island is part of the emirate of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, but lies well offshore, about 100 miles northwest of the mainland. It exports crude oil, LPG and liquified natural gas by ship around the world as far as Japan and Europe.
ADGAS, which is part of the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), is one of the largest processors of LNG in the Middle East. The Das Island site already includes a power plant based on five GE Frame 5 gas turbines, LPG as well as LNG plants, and facilities for approximately 2,000 workers located on the island.
