  1. Dresser Rand equipment to power Shell platform

    Siemens-owned Dresser-Rand recently delivered power generation equipment for a combined cycle power plant (CCPP) for the Shell Appomattox deepwater oil and gas floating production platform in the Gulf of Mexico . The platform is set to be located 80mi off the coast of Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico and is slated to start production around the end of this decade. The ~150MW CCPP will feature four 27 MW gas turbine-driven generator sets equipped with heat recovery systems and a 40MW steam turbine generator. The gas turbine gen-sets are self-contained mini-modules complete with all electrical wiring, piping, tubing and controls. With CCPPs, a gas turbine generator produces electricity while the waste heat from the gas turbine is used to make steam to generate additional electricity via a steam turbine. The CCPP for the Shell Appomattox platform will improve overall fuel efficiency, reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, and increase total power generation for the platform.
