GE Oil & Gas has announced that it has released a new programme for gas compression packagers, with AFGlobal signing an agreement to become the first participant in the programme. The programme aims to provide customers with greater access to GE’s Ajax and High-Speed Reciprocating (HSR) products and field services.
GE claims that its new programme will offer customers its premium gas compression systems, as well as the service and packaging expertise of participants, such as AFGlobal. Customers will benefit from the low lifecycle costs resulting from greater access to GE’s compressor parts and lower cycle times.
Diarmaid Mulholland, the General Manager of GE’s Reciprocating Compression portfolio, said: “Our new packager programme is part of GE’s larger initiative to invest in the gas compression space […] In addition to partnering with experienced packagers like AFGlobal, GE is spending millions of dollars in research and manufacturing to update our Ajax and HSR product lines to new levels of emissions compliance and efficiency.”
Curtis Samford, the President and CEO of AFGlobal, said: “Today is a major win for gas compression customers looking for ways to reduce lifecycle costs through improved access to genuine GE compressor parts and services […] GE is taking great strides to rapidly transform its compressor portfolio, and AFGlobal is pleased to work with them to offer world-class compression solutions with outstanding service support.”
