Siemens Gas and Power has secured a contract to supply industrial gas turbine generators (GTG), gas turbines and centrifugal compressors for a gas field development offshore Malaysia.

Under the contract, Siemens will supply three SGT-300 GTGs, three mechanical-drive SGT-300 gas turbines, and three DATUM centrifugal compressors for Petronas Kasawari gas field development project.

The Kasawari gas field development project is located in the South China Sea, offshore Sarawak in Malaysia.

It has an estimated recoverable gas resource of approximately three trillion standard cubic feet (tscf) and is considered to be one of the most significant gas discoveries in Malaysia.

Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering (MMHE) has formed a joint venture (JV) with oil and gas firm TechnipFMC to execute this work, with Petronas Carigali Sdn Bhd (PCSB) serving as the end-user.

Upon commencing production, the field is expected to produce up to 900 million cubic feet per day (MMCFD) of gas, which will be delivered to the PETRONAS LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak.

Siemens Energy Oil & Gas division Thorbjoern Fors said: “Siemens Gas and Power is proud to be selected by MMHE in supporting PCSB’s project to supply our proven, robust SGT-300 gas turbines and DATUM compressors for their large-scale field projects.

“This new contract award follows our breakthrough year in 2018 in Malaysia when Siemens supplied three SGT-300 units after signing our Global Frame Agreement contract with Petronas in 2017.”

In February this year, Siemens secured a contract to modernise the full drilling-drives package and cooling system of Arabian Drilling’s jack-up rig.
