Rolls-Royce win $40 million gas pipeline contract

Rolls-Royce has won a $40m contract to supply equipment to power the Turkmenistan-China natural gas pipeline.

The power systems company will supply Asia Trans Gas (ATG), a joint venture between Uzbekistan's Uzbekneftegaz and China’s National Petroleum Corporation, with three RB211 gas turbine driven pipeline compressor units to be used at a compressor station on the 530km Uzbekistan section of the 1,830km pipeline.

Li Lin, general director of ATG said: “We need reliable and efficient technology to transport the gas on this important project for Uzbekistan and China. Rolls-Royce technology is an excellent fit. We look forward to on-time delivery of the equipment and high levels of in-service support.”

Rolls-Royce president for energy, Andrew Heath, said: “Rolls-Royce technology is at the heart of China and Central Asia’s growing natural gas pipeline network. This contract strengthens our role and demonstrates the track-record of reliable technology and services we deliver to the world’s largest energy infrastructure projects.”

The Uzbekistan section of the Turkmenistan-China natural gas pipeline will transport 25 billion cubic meters of gas a year from Turkmenistan, through Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, to China.

Rolls-Royce will manufacture and package the equipment at its energy facilities in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and Mount Vernon, Ohio, USA.
