P&WA will install the units in Tripoli as part of a turnkey agreement with Qatar Fund for Development in support of the Qatar government's humanitarian efforts to support the people of Libya.
Qatar Fund for Development's director general, Khalifa bin Jassim Al Kuwari, signed the agreement with General Electricity Company of Libya and the director general of the US company Power & Water Alliance LLC. GECOL will own and operate the gas turbines which will run on diesel fuel oil and are expected to be operational in the spring of 2017.
"PW Power Systems provided rapid support for the people of Libya by delivering the FT8 MOBILEPAC gas turbine units to Libya within six weeks of contract signing," said PWPS President Peter Christman. "These fast-track mobile units will provide fuel flexibility and high reliability providing power to thousands, as well as supporting essential infrastructure such as hospitals and community care centers."
Indonesia, home to 260 MM people on 14,000 islands across a vast archipelago, is estimated to become the seventh-largest economy in the world by 2030, with such growth expected to boost the nation’s energy consumption by 80% from present levels.<sup>1</sup>
At October’s HPI Forecast Breakfast for our sister publication, <i>Hydrocarbon Processing</i>, I shared <i>Gas Processing</i>’s forecast on change in the LNG industry.
In one of the toughest markets in the history of gas compression, we are challenged to deliver more with less.
The New LNG Imperative
The shale gas boom established the US as the world’s leading natural gas producer and is responsible for billions of dollars of investments in the US gas processing industry. Since 2012, the US has witnessed unprecedented growth in new gas processing capacity and infrastructure. This rise is due to greater production of domestic shale gas, which is providing cheap, available feedstock to fuel the domestic gas processing, LNG and petrochemical industries. New gas processing projects include the construction of billions of cubic feet per day of new cryogenic and gas processing capacity, NGL fractionators, multi-billion-dollar pipeline infrastructure projects, and the development of millions of tons per year of new LNG export terminal construction. Attend this webcast to hear from Lee Nichols, Editor/Associate Publisher, Hydrocarbon Processing, Scott Allgood, Director-Data Services, Energy Web Atlas and Peregrine Bush, Senior Cartographic Editor, Petroleum Economist as they discuss the future of LNG and the application of Energy Web Atlas, a web-based GIS platform which allows users to track real-time information for every LNG project.
