Dresser-Rand said it will supply advanced turbomachinery for SBM Offshore (SBM) floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel bound, off Equatorial Guinea’s coast.

Huoston-based Dresser-Rand will provide four DATUM centrifugal compression trains driven by electric motors and three DR-61G (LM2500) gas turbine generator sets for the FPSO bound for Noble Energy’s Aseng field.

The FPSO will handle 120,000 barrels of liquid a day, including processing of 80,000 b/d of oil, injection of up to 150,000 b/d of water, as well as 170 million cubic feet of gas per day.

According to Dresser-Rand, the unit will have storage capacity for 1.6 million b/d of oil, including up to 500,000 b/d of condensate.

SBM Offshore has signed a contract with Noble Energy for the provision, lease and operation of the FPSO, which will operate in 3,281ft of water.
