GE technology used by RasGas to reduce turbine emission


Rasgas Company Limited (RasGas) is applying GEs Dry Low NOx (DLN) combustion technology to reduce gas turbine emissions at its Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) complex in Ras Laffan Industrial City.

This is part of the company's commitment to supporting Qatar's regulatory requirements with regards to Nitrogen Dioxide (NOx) emission levels.

"The technology retrofits for our first six GE gas turbines achieved the reduction of NOx emission levels by more than half, which go beyond the country's current regulatory requirements," said Hamad Rashid Al Mohannadi, RasGas, Managing Director.

The retrofitting of the GE gas turbines is being done as part of a long-term maintenance agreement between RasGas and GE. A GE team dedicated to the RasGas site will be responsible for performing all maintenance of GE units with the objective of increasing availability and reliability by leveraging GE's technology and specialized technical support.

"We will be moving forward with the retrofitting of the rest of our fleet of gas turbines to ensure that the entire complex fulfills its environmental responsibilities," Al Mohannadi said.

"This project attests to the strong relationship, forged over the years, between GE and RasGas. GE's innovative technology and advanced services are designed to help RasGas achieve production efficiency while complying with the State of Qatar's environmental regulation," said Joseph Anis, GE Energy's President for the Middle East.

"GE's emission reducing technology supports the region's overall efficiency drive to fuel continued growth," Anis added.
