As the leading supplier of turbomachinery to Oman, a state rich in raw materials, MAN Diesel & Turbo is delivering a further eight compressor trains to the state oil company Petroleum Development of Oman (PDO). Under the heading of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), PDO has placed the current order with a volume approaching the three-digit million euro range with MAN.
The compressor trains are to be used to increase natural gas extraction as part of the "Rabab Harweel Integrated Project". Together with six other compressor trains ordered from MAN by PDO back in mid-2014, MAN Diesel & Turbo's Swiss plant has thus landed the biggest order in its history. "Rabab Harweel Integrated Project is one of our mega projects in Oman," states Raoul Restucci, Managing Director of PDO. "As the easy oil supplies dwindle, EOR is going to account for an increasing part of our production portfolio. PDO is already a world leader in this area but we are now redoubling our efforts to ensure we maximize production from our fields."
"With the latest order from PDO we are delivering efficient high-pressure compression technology to a respected customer once again," explains Dr Uwe Lauber, CEO of MAN Diesel & Turbo SE since the start of 2015 and previously head of the company's Oil & Gas business unit. "We are thus supporting PDO and Oman in their efforts to raise oil and gas production to a higher level of efficiency. This is an example of how solutions from MAN Diesel & Turbo help our customers to achieve their goals."
