Siemens Energy to supply gas storage project in Uzbekistan

26 Apr 2021

Siemens Energy has been selected by engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) company, Enter Engineering Pte Ltd, to supply two low-emission compression trains for Phase I of the Gazli Underground Gas Storage (UGS) project in the Bukhara region of Uzbekistan.

The two trains will help extract up to 20 million standard cubic metres per day (MMSm3/d) of stored gas in the Gazli field and pressurise it for transportation by pipeline to domestic users in Uzbekistan and export to China. The project marks an essential step in helping the region sustainably meet domestic energy demand.

Each train will feature a high-efficiency, single-casing DATUM centrifugal compressor directly driven by an SGT-750 industrial gas turbine (41MW ISO).

The SGT-750 turbine’s DLE combustion system offers world-class emission performance and fuel flexibility over a broad load range. The turbine can achieve single-digit NOₓ emission levels down to a 20% load and does not require a speed-increasing gearbox.

Waste heat recovery units (WHRU) will be installed on both trains to capture thermal energy from the turbine’s exhaust and supply hot water for onsite heating.

As part of the agreement, Siemens Energy will also provide financing for 90% of the contract value.

The gas turbines will be manufactured in Finspong, Sweden. The compressors will be manufactured in Le Havre, France. Commissioning of the trains is slated for late 2021.
