Exergy, the Italian manufacturer of ORC systems, in partnership with Baker Hughes, a GE company, has been contracted to provide a waste heat recovery unit at PTT LNG’s terminal in Thailand.

The partnership has been awarded a contract by Samsung Engineering, for the design and construction of a 5 MW ORC unit for waste heat recovery from gas turbines at the Map Ta Phut LNG terminal.

Samsung Engineering acts as EPC contractor for PTT LNG, Exergy said in a statement.

Exergy’s ORC solution, equipped with radial outflow turbine technology, recovers the exhaust heat downstream generated from the two gas turbines installed at the LNG plant, to generate 5 MW of electricity.

The heat recovery plant exploits a large amount of the residual heat, otherwise discharged by the gas turbine into the atmosphere.

The ORC will start commercial operation in the first half of 2019, Exergy said.

It was the first contract for Exergy in the heat recovery market for the oil and gas application, and the company noted this market will become the primary focus in the near future due to the demand growth in the sector.

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
