GE Power was awarded the tender for supplying the variable speed drive system (VSDS) as one of the key systems to increase the production capacity of the Oman LNG plant, part of the debottlenecking project. 

After identifying specific areas in the plant that further enhance efficiency and create additional value from surplus gas in the grid, Oman LNG has decided to embark on debottlenecking various systems and optimizing existing compressor train performance at the Oman LNG plant.

The 18-megawatt (MW) two-pole motor will replace the existing 7.5-MW motor.

Ultimately, the debottlenecking project will increase the plant’s overall production at project completion across three trains, GE Power said in its statement.

The VSDS from GE’s Power Conversion business has the capacity to reach the high speed and efficiency needed to increase the compressor train production. Similar footprint and less necessary auxiliary requirements provide flexibility to the plant layout and enable plant integration with its existing compressor string, which in turn reduces the associated infrastructure costs and facilitates a faster execution time.

GE said that to date, 150 GE high-speed systems have been installed, with 4.5 million operation hours accumulated.
