Rolls-Royce has been awarded contracts worth $136m (£86m) to supply technology and long-term services support to Dolphin Energy, which transports natural gas from Qatar to the United Arab Emirates and Oman via a 364km subsea pipeline.
Rolls-Royce will supply Dolphin Energy with three industrial Trent gas turbine compression packages. The three new Trent units, each rated at 52MW, will join six similar Rolls-Royce packages that went into service at Dolphin Energy’s Gas Processing Plant in Ras Laffan, Qatar in 2006.
In addition to selecting Rolls-Royce energy technology, Dolphin Energy has signed a TotalCare long-term equipment service agreement designed to increase equipment availability and reliability.
The equipment will be manufactured and packaged at the Rolls-Royce facilities in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and Mount Vernon, Ohio, US.
Delivery of the packaged units to Ras Laffan will be in the second and third quarters of 2013.
