Gas Engines increase gas production
in Raml Field (Egypt)


  • Increases contingency reserves
  • Substantial savings in fuel costs (almost 7MM€/year)*
  • Increased power generation reliability and availability
  • Increased oil production
  • Reduced maintenance and repair costs
  • Reduced emissions by 50 percent and reduced flared gas by 60 percent

The Opportunity

There are more than 110 oil-producing wells in the western desert fields of Egypt, 30 of which are located in the Raml oil and gas fields.
Historically, these western desert fields suffered poor yields because of the high gas-to-oil ratio.
Agiba Petroleum Company, an oil and gas production company, called on Dresser-Rand to help increase production at one of its gas plants in the Raml field.

The Solution

Guascor Energy’s project development team created a solution that delivered gas of consistent quality and methane yield for combustion in specially designed, low compression ratio (LCR) engines.
The flare gas is captured and used to produce 1.5MWe of electricity.
This separation technology enabled Agiba Petroleum
Company to capture and use a higher quality gas gas resource that was previously wasted.
Today, three Guascor Energy G-48SL LCR engines run on flare gas with a very low methane number (46.1).
