PTSC Mechanical & Construction Ltd. has commissioned MAN Diesel & Turbo to supply a total of two compressor trains for the Sao Vang and Dai Nguyet gas fieldsí development project in Vietnam.
"We are pleased with the opportunity to work on this project in the important emerging market of Vietnam. This order will further strengthen our reach in Asia" says Basil Zweifel, Head of Sales, Oil & Gas at MAN Diesel & Turbo. "The growing focus of the market lies on reliable gas supply, which supports Vietnamís efforts to optimize its energy mix toward cleaner sources. MAN has the right technology solutions to fully support this target.Ē
MANís compressor trains are to be used to export the gas from the offshore platform to the onshore receiving terminal at Dinh Co. The gas fields in the Nam Con Son basin are located 500 km south of Vietnamís largest city Ho Chi Minh City. Japanese petroleum company Idemitsu Kosan is the end customer and operator of the new platform.
The order comprises two booster + export gas compression trains, each consisting of two RB35 barrel-type compressors, driven by a 13MW gas turbine from Solar Turbines. The compressors dry gas seal system will use technology features of MANís standardized U-Pacģ solution system, which proved successful within the Oil & Gas market over the past years. In order to meet the future field conditions the compressor selection required special attention, so that a replacement back to back arrangement can be accommodated in the current inline casing.
MAN Diesel & Turbo will manufacture the ordered compressor systems in Zurich (Switzerland). Both trains will then be string tested at the Multi-Purpose Open Air Test Facility of MAN in Oberhausen (Germany). After delivery in spring 2019, the installation and commissioning works in Vietnam will be the responsibility of the companyís regional hub in Kuala Lumpur.
