GE Oil & Gas was awarded a contract to provide Korean shipbuilding firm Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) with turbomachinery equipment and services for a new oil and gas production platform being built to support the production activities of Statoil Petroleum AS and its partners Total S.A. and Det Norske in the Gina Krog field in the Norwegian North Sea.

Gina Krog (previously known as Dagny) is located 30 kilometers (km) northwest of the Sleipner field and approximately 250 km southwest of Stavanger, Norway. The development of Gina Krog will be among Statoil's major new developments with an estimated 225 million barrels of oil and gas.

For the project, GE is supplying DSME with an integrated topside turbomachinery solution featuring products from several GE businesses. DSME is the primary contractor in charge of platform construction for Statoil and its partners.

The Gina Krog platform represents the second contract to be implemented as part of a five-year turbomachinery equipment and services supply frame agreement that GE and Statoil signed in February 2013. The first contract called for GE to supply turbomachinery equipment for the Aasta Hansteen field in the North Sea.

As with the Aasta Hansteen project, GE Oil & Gas is supplying DSME with its latest generation of the SeaSmartTM Offshore Package Solution that features an LM2500 aeroderivative gas turbine that will provide the Gina Krog platform with on-site power in a more compact, durable and lighter configuration. The project also will demonstrate the SeaSmart Offshore Package’s noise reduction benefits for offshore applications.

The equipment scope of supply includes a SeaSmart module consisting of an LM2500+Six Pack SAC model aeroderivative gas turbine unit (31,369 kilowatts ISO-rated at shaft) along with the relevant auxiliaries and balance of plant equipment, driving a two-pole electric generator; compression services, including three trains driven by GE Power Conversion variable speed drive (VSD) motors; injection: VSDs 16 megawatt (MW)+GB+BCL307; recompressor 1+2: VSDs (1.4 MW)+GB+2BCL358; recompressor 3: VSDs (1.4 MW)+GB+BCL257 and spare parts, including commissioning and start-up spares and capital equipment.

GE’s integrated equipment solution is scheduled to be delivered in the first quarter of 2015. The platform’s offshore hook-up is scheduled to take place in 2016.

GE’s manufacturing facilities in Florence and Massa, Italy, will manufacture the compressor equipment and also handle the packaging of the aeroderivative gas turbine supplied by GE Power & Water’s plant in Cincinnati, Ohio. GE’s Power Conversion facility in Massy (Paris) and Nancy, France will provide the variable speed drive units.

Statoil and GE Oil & Gas' cooperation dates back to the 1970s with the supply of compressors for the Statfjord platform in the North Sea. In addition to signing their latest frame agreements, GE and Statoil recently signed a technology cooperation agreement involving key engineering personnel from both companies. Once a year, GE and Statoil’s CEOs also hold a management forum.
