GE to Supply Waukesha and Jenbacher Gas Engines, Water Treatment Technology to Generate Reliable On-site Power and Clean Water at Site Near Chinchilla, Queensland;
Project Marks GEs First Joint Deployment of Waukesha and Jenbacher Gas Engines;
QGC is Developing the Worlds First Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Project Based on Gas from Coal Seams.

Helping Australia develop its unconventional gas reserves to meet the global demand for cleaner fuel options, GEs (NYSE: GE) Power & Water business is supplying an integrated solution of critical, on-site power generation and water filtration equipment to an energy consortium that is building a water treatment plant on behalf of Australian coal seam gas explorer and producer QGC.

The project, located at QGCs Kenya production site near Chinchilla in Queensland, Australia, integrates GEs Waukesha and Jenbacher gas engines for the first time. The engines will generate reliable, on-site power for GEs advanced membrane and thermal water treatment technologies that are being installed to desalinate water produced during the extraction of coal seam gas. The water treatment facility will have the capacity to treat up to 100 million liters per day so it can be used on farms, in industry and as town supply.

GE is supplying its power and water technology solutions to GELOR, a consortium of GE Betz Pty Ltd. and Laing ORourke Construction Pty Ltd., which is building the water treatment plant on behalf of QGC.

QGC, a BG Group business, is developing the Queensland Curtis LNG Project, which involves expanding production of coal seam gas in the Surat Basin of southern Queensland; building a 540 km pipeline network linking the gas fields to Gladstone on the central coast of Queensland; and construction of an LNG plant on Curtis Island off Gladstone.

Coal seam gas, also known as coal bed methane, is a form of natural gas trapped in coal by water and ground pressure. The gas is released after a well is drilled and the water is pumped out. Using coal seam gas to generate electricity instead of coal can reduce greenhouse emissions by up to 70 percent.

Queensland is Australias focal point of coal seam gas extraction, accounting for more than 90 percent of the countrys annual production as the industry looks to expand from being a regional distributed energy supplier into a significant, global source of LNG. In fact, coal seam gas production is expected to play a prominent role in the future energy plans of China, Russia, India, Indonesia and other countries.

To ensure QGC has reliable on-site power for its water treatment at its Kenya facility, GE is supplying GELOR with its coal seam gas-fueled Waukesha and Jenbacher speciality gas engines including:

Three of GEs ecomagination-qualified Waukesha 12V 275GL+ mechanical drive engines, which are the most efficient, powerful, fuel flexible engines in their class and will power vapor compressors used to help treat brine water at the site. The 275GL+ gas engines capitalize on Waukeshas 100-plus years of expertise and leverage GEs service, scale and research capabilities.

Seven of GEs ecomagination-qualified, 3.3-megawatt (MW), J620 Jenbacher gas engines that will generate about 23.1 MW to support QGCs Kenya water treatment plant, which will recycle wastewater created during the gas production process. The engines have been delivered to the site by Clarke Energy Ltd., GEs exclusive gas engine distributor in Australia.

As Australias growing coal seam gas industry works to become a global supplier of LNG, QGCs Kenya project illustrates how GE Energys integrated portfolio offers customers a one-stop solution to meet their critical on-site power and water treatment technology needs and ensure that projects comply with various environmental regulations governing the coal seam gas industry, said GEs Rafael Santana, CEO and presidentGas Engines for GE Power & Water. QGCs Kenya project marks the first time that we are jointly deploying our Waukesha and Jenbacher gas engines for an on-site power project following GEs acquisition of Dresser Inc., the former parent company of Waukesha Gas Engines.

For the wastewater treatment facility, GE previously announced it will supply its advanced membrane and thermal water treatment technologies. The plant is expected to begin commercial operation in 2012.
