Rolls-Royce Energy announced today that it has won two contracts to supply equipment to offshore projects in Russia and Nigeria.

The Russian contract, valued at $24 million from Sakhalin Energy Investment Company (SEIC), is for two RB211 gas turbine power generation units for Phase II of an offshore oil and gas production platform near Sakhalin Island, Russia.

Rolls-Royce will design the offshore RB211 gas turbine packages to withstand severe conditions, including winds exceeding 90 mph, 19 metre high waves and temperatures as low as minus 35C.

For the Nigerian project, Rolls-Royce will supply five RB211-6562 mechanical drive units, a spare RB211 gas generator and allied equipment for an offshore platform in the East Area Project, operated by Mobil Producing Nigeria. Each of the 40,000 horsepower RB211 sets will drive a Demag Delaval centrifugal barrel compressor.

All five units will be installed on an offshore platform where they will ‘gather’ natural gas produced as a by-product from existing oil production facilities.

All the Rolls-Royce equipment for Russia will be packaged in the company’s Liverpool, UK, facility for delivery in the third quarter of next year. Equipment for Nigeria will be packaged at Mount Vernon, Ohio, for delivery between the first and third quarters of next year.
