Chevron deal to benefit GE’s Aberdeen unit

Chevron deal  to benefit GE’s Aberdeen unit
GE Oil and Gas in Aberdeen is to benefit from a "significant share" in a £733million contract the company has been awarded by Chevron to supply power-generation and subsea equipment to the giant Greater Gorgon gas project off the west coast of Australia.

GE Oil and Gas in Aberdeen is to benefit from a “significant share” in a £733million contract the company has been awarded by Chevron to supply power-generation and subsea equipment to the giant Greater Gorgon gas project off the west coast of Australia.

Its Aberdeen operation will be supplying 20 subsea trees, which control and manage the production of gas from underwater wells, and 20 subsea wellhead systems to the Gorgon gas project.

Matt Corbin, UK regional leader of GE Oil and Gas, said: “We are delighted that GE subsea tree systems have been selected by Chevron for the Gorgon project, which will supply cleaner energy to markets in the Asia-Pacific region.

“Our Aberdeen subsea tree manufacturing site is a world centre of excellence and it’s a credit to the local expertise we employ and the reliability of our subsea trees that we have been selected for this important project shaping the future supply of world energy.”

GE Oil and Gas employs about 1,050 people at two sites in Aberdeen and one at Montrose, with the majority of staff located in the Granite City.

Other company sites across the world will be supplying equipment to the Gorgon project including gas turbines, compression trains to power its pioneering carbon-dioxide sequestration project and other subsea control systems. The scope of work undertaken by GE Oil and Gas will total about 10,000 tonnes of structures.

Greater Gorgon is estimated to contain about 40trillion cubic feet of gas, making it one of the largest untapped gas resources in the world.

The company is holding a career fair in Aberdeen on Saturday in a search for new recruits for its Scottish operations. Almost 30 new recruits are wanted, and candidates can find more information and register for the invitation-only event on www.gecareerfair.com

Jobs are on offer in engineering, aftermarket, projects and product management, sourcing, manufac-turing, proposal, quality and also in human resources, legal and marketing.
