Rolls-Royce has recently won an order for gas turbine and compression equipment for the Tapis oil and gas field, offshore Malaysia. The equipment will be utilized by ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Malaysia (EMEPMI) to expand and extend the production of the field.
The order includes two Rolls-Royce RB211-GT61 gas turbines, each driving twin Rolls-Royce RCB and RBB multi-stage barrel gas compressors. Each gas turbine compressor set will produce 27MW of power, which can deliver up to 390 million standard cubic feet of natural gas per day.
Rolls-Royce will begin to deliver equipment to EMEPMI in the third quarter of 2012. The equipment will be installed at the Tapis Enhanced Oil Recovery Project, featuring a central processing platform with a new integrated deck.
