Siemens Secures FPSO Compression Train Order

Siemens has been awarded a contract from Statoil to supply a compressor train for a floating produciton, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel in the Johan Castberg oilfield in the Barents Sea (north/northwest of Finland).

The compressor train comprises a 41-MW SGT-750 gas turbine that will drive a tandem arrangement of two DATUM compressors. This marks the first use of an SGT-750 in an offshore application. A waste heat recovery unit will distribute turbine exhaust heat that will heat liquid supplied to key surfaces of the superstructure in order to prevent ice build-up.

Equipment delivery is set for mid-2019 with first oil planned for 2022.
