Abu Dhabi, May 27, 2009
GE Oil & Gas, a world leader in oil and gas advanced technology equipment and services, is showcasing its extensive range of eco-certified products and latest technologies at a leading energy show.
Gastech 2009, the largest international conference and exhibition for the LNG, LPG and natural gas industries, is being held from May 25 to 28 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
“The oil and gas sector continues to be a prime driver for the Gulf regional economies, and GE has been focused on enhancing the operational efficiency of our partners in the industry,” said Mohammed Ayoub, operations leader – regional general manager, GE Oil & Gas.
“As the region’s leading oil and gas industry exhibition, Gastech 2009 offers us the ideal platform to highlight our latest technology developments.”
Joe Mastrangelo, vice president – turbo machinery, for GE Oil & Gas, said: “In recent years, private and public sector participants in the oil and gas sector have become increasingly focused on the long-term sustainability of their operations.”
“This is as a result of having to meet the challenge of depleting oil and gas reserves and that of climate change by adopting environmentally-friendly energy solutions. Our participation at Gastech 2009 addresses both of these aspects,” he added.
GE Oil & Gas is showcasing several of its eco-certified products including the BCL centrifugal compressor for sour gas reinjection, the ORegen waste heat recovery system for industrial plants and integrated compressor line (ICL) technology, which saves energy and avoids associated CO2 emissions.
The latest developments in steam turbine technology for concentrated solar power applications and the Power Crystal Kit for gas turbine upgrades will also be on display.
At the conference held as part of the event, Giacomo Seghi, engineering technology programme leader for GE Oil & Gas, will present a paper on “Reducing carbon dioxide footprint by enhancing overall cycle efficiency.” – TradeArabia News Service
