The gas turbine will start on lean gas
and transfer to the Isopentane mix over time, and the power plant is intended to operate at base load throughout its life.
On Thursday, ENI announced that it has made a lean gas
discovery in Block 6 Offshore Cyprus with Calypso 1 NFW.
The project involves production of liquids-rich gas, stripping off the condensates and injecting the lean gas
The company's Director of Legal and Corporate services, Mr Olusegun Ilori explained that the gas utilization programme involve the use of the lean gas
to power the 12MW gas generator at Otakikpo field out of which 5MW would be dedicated to the host communities in line with its MOU with the government while the LPG and propane would be bottled and sold.
Italy's Eni announced its Zohr gas field, located about 120 miles off the coast of Egypt, could hold as much as 30 trillion cubic feet of lean gas
, marking the largest discovery in the history of both Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea.
To service the local gas market, QP has a 211-km pipeline with associated stations and infrastructure since 2011 carrying 2,000 MCF/d of sweet lean gas
from Ras Laffan to different consumers at the Messai'eed and Ras Laffan industrial zones.
The 11,500 ft-deep discovery well, DK-508, tested 14 MCF/d of gas and 2,000 b/d of condensate from the Hamlah Dolomite, and 47 MCF/d of lean gas
The project aims at delivering a combination of lean gas
, condensate and sour gas from its Khafji Joint Operation (KJO) facilities in Saudi Arabia to KOC's tie-in intermediate slug catcher in Mina Al Ahmadi.

Two of the gas turbines each drive a barrel-type turbocompressor (STC-SV) for lean gas
It is currently making available to the VRA thermal power plant complex around 32-35 MMSCFD of lean gas
, enough to support the generation of about 130-140MW of electricity from the Aboadze complex out of the maximum 550MW possible.
According to the Eni's statement on the new energy supply, the natural gas field, covering 100 sqkm, is considered to "be the largest gas discovery ever made in Egypt and in the Mediterranean Sea" and may hold up to 30tncubic feet of lean gas
