Gas turbine developed for mechanical drive applications by a trio of Mitsubishi companies received full Shell qualification following detailed technical review.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Compressor Corporation (MCO) developed the 2-shaft 118MW H-100 gas turbine that started a testing regime to validate the mechanical drive performance in August 2017.

After completion of testing protocol and a detailed technical review by their qualification team, Shell unveiled their official qualification of the MHPS gas turbine on December 22, 2017, the statement reads.

Shell has already qualified Mitsubishi Compressors by Enterprise Frame Agreement effective in 2011, clearing the way for MHPS and MCO to supply all components for future Shell LNG compression systems.

MHI said the H-100 gas turbine offers efficiency and reliability with low-maintenance with benefits including a broad variable-speed operating window and train restarts under settle-out pressure as well as shortened start-up time and a reduced plot size.

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.
