Siemens to power Petronas gas field development off Malaysia

Siemens Gas and Power said it has won a contract to supply equipment for the Petronas-operated Kasawari gas field development in the South China Sea, offshore Sarawak in Malaysia.

Under the deal, the unit of German industrial conglomerate Siemens will provide three SGT-300 industrial gas turbine generators.

The deal also includes three SGT-300 mechanical-drive gas turbines and three Datum centrifugal compressors.

The customer, Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering has formed a joint venture with TechnipFMC to execute this work. Petronas Carigali is the end-user.

The Kasawari field is one of the most significant gas discoveries in Malaysia. The field is estimated to have recoverable gas resource of about three trillion standard cubic feet.

Once online, the field will produce up to 900 million cubic feet per day of gas and deliver it to the Petronas Bintulu LNG plant.

The three SGT-300 GTG units will have dual-fuel capability.

Each turbine will have a power capacity of 7.9 megawatts electric. They will provide the necessary power to the entire offshore central processing platform.

The three mechanical drive gas turbines will have a capacity to produce a power output of 9 megawatts.

Siemens says it will deliver the equipment in time for the planned startup of the processing platform in the first quarter of 2023.

The company did not reveal the financial details of the deal.
