Owned 60% by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company and 40% by Shell, Total, BP, ExxonMobil and Partex, ADCO is targeting to increase its production to 1.8 million barrels per day Barrels per day (abbreviated BPD, bbl/d, bpd, bd or b/d) is a measurement used to describe the amount of crude oil (measured in barrels) produced or consumed by an entity in one day. .
By combining their resources and experience, GE Oil & Gas and ABB were able to win both contracts against strong competition, offering a broad technology package that meets the oil production and recovery requirements of the Asab and Sahil projects.
"By leveraging our experience in working with extremely resistant and advanced technology materials for compressor compressor, machine that decreases the volume of air or other gas by the application of pressure. Compressor types range from the simple hand pump and the piston-equipped compressor used to inflate tires to machines that use a rotating, bladed element to achieve components, we are able to provide equipment capable of handling the highly sour and corrosive corrosive /cor·ro·sive/ (kor-o´siv) producing gradual destruction, as of a metal by electrochemical reaction or of the tissues by the action of a strong acid or alkali; an agent that so acts. gas compositions of these fields," said Joe Mastrangelo, vice president- turbomachinery for GE Oil & Gas. "Our expertise in gas lift and gas injection applications gives ADCO the confidence that our products can meet the challenges of these projects."
GE Oil & Gas is supplying centrifugal compressors Centrifugal compressors, (sometimes referred to as radial compressors) are a special class of radial-flow work-absorbing turbomachinery that includes pumps, fans, blowers and compressors. for the gas lift project at Asab and the gas injection project at Sahil.
