HOUSTON and LONDON -- Baker Hughes, a GE company, has been awarded by Statoil Petroleum AS and Aker Solutions a contract to provide turbomachinery equipment for the topside structure for the floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) to be located at Johan Castberg field in the Barents Sea.

Under the deal, which is part of a global frame agreement with Statoil, BHGE will provide an integrated technology configuration tailored to the project’s specifics needs. This will include a BHGE’s module solution designed for FPSO, specifically developed and pre-assembled to help Statoil reduce the number of interfaces at the installation site, leading to a significant risk reduction during the engineering execution and construction phases.

BHGE’s scope of supply will include two gas turbine generators with LM2500+ G4 Dry Low Emission with Dual Fuel capability direct coupled with two poles electric generators. Each Gas Turbine Generator train will feature a Waste Heat Recovery Unit on its Exhaust system, that will allow the recovery of energy of the turbine fumes in order to maximize efficiency. The scope of supply will also include Balance of Plant (BOP) auxiliaries related to the gas turbines and to the waste recovery units.

The scope of supply will be tested and preassembled into three industrial modules at BHGE’s Turbomachinery & Process Solutions centers of excellence of Massa and Avenza in Italy. The modules will be then shipped by Statoil to Singapore for final integration on the FPSO topside. The shipment of the modules is targeted for the fourth quarter of 2019.
