GE Energy's oil and gas business has been selected to supply major rotating equipment for Train 5, the latest expansion of the RasGas (II) facility owned by Ras Laffan Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Company Ltd. in the State of Qatar.

The new LNG Train 5 will be built adjacent to the existing LNG Train 3 that was completed in December of 2003, and Train 4 now being constructed. GE Energy also has supplied equipment for these two projects. The Train 5 project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2006.

Under a contract of more than US$95 million, GE Energy's oil and gas business will provide two Frame 7EA mechanical drive gas turbines, two Frame 6B gas turbine generator packages, one Frame 5D residue gas compressor package, and one Rotoflow Frame 60 turbo expander-compressor. All the gas turbines will be equipped with Dry Low NOx combustion systems to meet the stringent NOx emissions levels now required in Qatar.

The equipment will be supplied through a joint venture including Chiyoda Corporation of Japan and Snamprogetti S.p.A. of Italy, which has received the engineering, procurement and construction contract for the plant.

RasGas (II) was formed in 2001 to produce and sell LNG, condensate and other hydrocarbon products. Today, the company is constructing onshore, offshore and sub-sea pipeline and gas field facilities. RasGas (II) is owned 70% by Qatar Petroleum and 30% by ExxonMobil Corporation.
