GE Oil & Gas has won two contracts from Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) for the supply, testing, installation, and commissioning of a fleet of electric motor-driven centrifugal compressors, reported Trade Arabia.

The fleet will be deployed in PDO’s Saih Nihayda Depletion Compression Phase II, Kawther Depletion Compression Phase II, Yibal Khuff Depletion, Burhaan West, and Fahud Gaslift Compression projects.

According to Times of Oman, the contracts will also cover aftermarket services for the new compressors and the existing GE compressor fleet.

In addition, an agreement was signed between GE and PDO extending GE’s training and development support for Oman over the next 10 years. This is in line with the In-Country Value (ICV) initiative that Oman has been pursuing with oil and energy companies. The contracts were signed at the Business Opportunities Forum held in Muscat.
