Centrax has won a significant new order for the supply of two CX501-KB7 generator set packages to Nobel Oil in Russia. The two outdoor packages will be located at an oil and gas facility in the Yuzhno-Oshkoye Field which is located in Russia's Komi Republic, approximately 1,000km North East of Moscow. The 5.2 MWe generator sets will each be used to power the oil extraction plant at the site and will be powered by associated gas from the oil production process, significantly reducing quantities of gas flared at site.
“This is a significant order for Centrax because it is for an important new customer in Russia.” said Regional Sales Manager Nick Royal. He added: “It will further develop our position in the Russian market, establishing an expanded customer base for our products”.
Working closely with St. Petersburg-based engineering contractor, Zvezda Energetika, Centrax were selected for the project because it offered competitive delivery and installation time and, importantly, have proven equipment at similar installations in Russia with other oil companies such as TNK-BP.
The end user for the equipment will be Nobel Holdings, a privately-owned oil and gas exploration company. Nobel Oil require the equipment in order to achieve new targets for reduced flaring which come into effect in Russia at the start of 2013. This latest order brings the total number of Centrax units in Russia to 33.
In addition to this latest order, Centrax' St. Petersburg service centre is preparing for its busiest year yet in 2013, with installation and commissioning scheduled imminently for 17 new CX501-KB7 gas turbine packages at TNK-BP's Ust Tegusskoe and Verhnekolikieganskoe oil production facilities in Siberia.
