High reliability is essential for any oil and gas subsea installation. GE's solutions are built around proven technologies, with specific requirements tested and qualified on major pilot projects, enabling continued operation over prolonged periods without maintenance intervention.
Maintenance and space-saving are critical in offshore applications. GE’s solutions are designed with this in mind. An example of this is GE's gearless solution to drive pumps and compressors.
GE’s electrical solutions for the onshore environment help deliver reliability, availability and safety for onshore oil and gas production every day. They are also an excellent alternative to the gas turbine.
With extensive expertise in electrification and knowledge of LNG processes, GE’s engineers have developed high-reliability systems and strong capability in high-power systems to meet the requirements of LNG operators. Applying a system approach from the grid connection to the compressor flow GE offer an extended electrical package with drives, motors, generators, switchgear, transformers, UPS, MCC, harmonic filters, and e-house.
Transportation & Storage
Underground gas storage is critical in energy planning. Pipelines call for high operating efficiency, safe transportation and little downtime. GE’s electrical solutions help ensure constant and reliable operation for both transportation and storage of gas.
The challenges of the downstream industry mainly lie in the reliable and continuous supply of electrical energy while keeping operating costs stable. GE provides reliable solutions for refining and petrochemical processes.
