GE Oil and Gas has designed gas turbine generators that can operate in temperatures up to -60C for a power plant project at the Vankor oil field in Moscow, which is owned by Rosneft oil company.

The 210MWt gas turbine power station at the Vankor oil field will become the only complete source of power and heat used for life support and oil and gas production, as well as part of the first stage of the oil field’s launch into operation.

Rosneft obtained licenses to explore the oil field in 2003.

As part of its continuing cooperation with Rosneft, GE Oil and Gas is supplying eight gas turbine generators based on MS5001PA gas turbines.

To ensure reliable operation of the equipment in extreme climatic conditions, GE has developed a special turbine design and used automated heating systems to transport and store the equipment on the site.

The gas turbine generators were delivered ahead of schedule under two contracts signed in December 2006 and May 2008.

Four units were delivered to the customer in August 2007 and another four in March 2009.

Under the contracts, GE will train experts that will provide technical maintenance for the gas turbines on the site.

GE Oil and Gas has also developed five special training programmes for Rosneft personnel and is currently coordinating a tailored training programme for the first group to be delivered at GE Oil and Gas headquarters in Florence, Italy.
