MAN Diesel & Turbo (MDT) has been commissioned by CNOOC China’s Zhanjiang Branch to supply a total of six compressor trains for the Dongfang 13-2 gas fields development project in the South China Sea. 

The compressor trains from MAN Diesel & Turbo Schweiz are to be used in gas reinjection and export on new platforms in the Dongfang 13-2 gas field, located in Yinggehai Basin of the Beibu Gulf with an average water depth of approximately 70m. 

The total order comprises three wet gas and three dry gas compressor trains with intercooled barrel type compressors – all driven by electric motors with variable frequency converter. The wet gas compressor trains will be built as standardized and modularized Upstream Packages (U-Pac). 

"This order for Dongfang emphasizes how the market is developing: the growing focus lies on reliable gas supply, which supports China’s efforts to optimize its energy mix toward cleaner sources and reduce its reliance on coal. MAN Diesel & Turbo has the right technology to fully support this goal,” says Ronnie Su, MDT head of sales and contracts turbomachinery.

"Today’s oil and gas industry is asking for best value solutions to tackle the cost constraints and for fast delivery times to start production as soon as possible," says Basil Zweifel, MDT head of oil and gas upstream. "MAN’s standardized upstream packages address these requirements to the full extent without compromising on safety and reliability. The modular approach of these packages makes it possible to cut lead time and costs considerably. Size and weight of the compressor packages are also significantly reduced, resulting in additional benefits especially for our offshore application customers." 

CNOOC has initiated a further development stage of the Dongfang natural gas field. Additional gas exploitation in the area is part of the country's long-term goal to satisfy its growing energy consumption.
