GE Oil & Gas to provide long-term maintenance for LNG facility

GE Oil & Gas recently received a long-term contractual service agreement (CSA) through General Electric International Peru to support the PERU LNG S.R.L liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in Pampa Melchorita, Peru. The facility, located about 100 miles south of Lima, has an estimated annual production capacity of 4 million tonnes of LNG. Open since June 2010, the complex also consists of two storage tanks – each with a capacity of 130 000 m3 of LNG, a marine terminal and a supply pipeline.

Under the new 13-year CSA agreement, GE Oil & Gas will cover all major maintenance requirements (including parts, repairs and field services) for the plant’s liquefaction train, which is comprised of GE 7EA units and compressors along with associated auxiliaries.

The CSA will also cover the site’s power generation equipment that consists of three GE LM2500+ aeroderivative gas turbine-generators and auxiliaries. In addition to major maintenance, GE Oil & Gas also will provide a resident support team to assist with all aspects of maintenance on GE equipment as well as a Predictivity package for remote equipment monitoring.

The LNG plant is owned by PERU LNG S.R.L., a company sponsored by Hunt Oil Co., SK Innovation, Shell and Marubeni.
