Aggreko Helps Keep Gas Delivery Online for Burullus Gas in Egypt

Source: www.oilegypt.com 10/12/2004, Location: Africa

Dubai – 12th October, 2004 Aggreko plc a global leader in providing temporary power and temperature control services, today announced that it has completed a series of orders to supply Burullus Gas, a joint venture between BG International, Edison International SpA, and Egyptian General Petroleum Corporation, with facility power and turbine testing for their recently constructed gas processing plant located at Idku near Alexandria, Egypt.The processing plant receives gas from the largest gas field development in Egypt; the ‘Scarab & Saffron’ fields located 90kms off the north coast. The onshore processing plant will deliver up to 750 million standard cubic feet per day of gas and approximately 3,000 barrels per day of condensate. Treated gas is metered and exported via a new pipeline to the Egyptian National Transmission System.

When the plant completed construction in late 2002, first domestic delivery of gas was scheduled for the first quarter of 2003. Aggreko was initially contracted to supply a 1MW temporary power package to help commission the new processing plant in November 2002.

An additional 2MW was installed 4 months later providing a complete main power supply for the facility enabling first gas production and delivery to the domestic market as planned. Both packages were managed on site by Aggreko staff 24 hours 7 days a week.

With a secure and reliable main power supply available from Aggreko, Burullus requested a 5MVA loadbank package to help commission the newly installed permanent turbines at the facility.

The excellent performance on both the power and loadbank packages supplied by Aggreko resulted in both contracts extending for many months.

Andy Walker, Aggreko Sales Manager said, “Problems with power supply can often occur unexpectedly. In this case, Aggreko provided an immediate power solution, alleviating the strain of delivering, installing and commissioning the gas turbines by the planned deadline for delivery of gas into the domestic market. Furthermore, the load testing service we provide minimises the risk of power failure during initial turbine commissioning and start-up operations.”

5MVA Loadbank package was supplied by Aggreko to help commission newly installed turbines at the gas processing plant.
