Siemens was recently selected to supply two SGT-300 industrial gas turbines for an established Montney producer in Alberta, Canada.
The equipment order, placed by the customer’s engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) firm, marks the first application of an SGT-300 turbine in Canada.
The gas processing plant will help support production growth for the customer in the Grande Prairie Region, located northeast of Edmonton, and will be built alongside the company’s existing dehydration and compression facility. When completed in 2020, the plant will provide the customer with an additional 50 million ft3/d of natural gas processing capacity and 30 000 bpd of condensate stabilisation capacity.
The two SGT-300 industrial gas turbines, which will share 12 MW of power generation, met all project requirements and will be used to drive compressors at the facility. The turbine is renowned for its use in the oil and gas industry, offering a compact arrangement, easy on-site maintainability, and reliability.
The turbine package for the gas plant will feature a non-enclosed design, allowing the plant-wide fire detection and suppression system to ensure worker safety throughout the facility. It will also provide open access for maintenance and visual inspections.
“The SGT-300 unit was a logical choice for this project, given its high efficiency, innovative dry low emissions combustion system, and more than 4.5 million hours of operating experience worldwide,” said Matthew Chinn, Executive Vice President of New Equipment Solutions Worldwide for Siemens. “These features will ultimately minimise operational and maintenance costs for the customer over the life of the plant.”
The two units are expected to be delivered in late summer 2019, just 10 months after the initial order was placed. Commissioning is expected in autumn 2019.
