Exterran Holdings announced that it has signed two agreements related to projects in Bolivia and Brazil. The first, signed in October 2014, is a six-year compression services contract with Petrobras Bolivia including construction and installation of a compressor station for two fields near Tarija, Bolivia.
Exterran will provide and install all of the natural gas compression equipment, deliver engineering, procurement and construction management services, and operate and maintain the equipment. The compressor station will compress gas from the San Alberto and Itau fields for export primarily to facilities in Brazil and Argentina. The compressor station is expected to have a total volume capacity of approximately 450MMSCFD of natural gas when fully operational.
The second contract, signed in December 2014 with Petróleo Brasileiro (Petrobras), includes the construction and installation of an amine plant near the Carmopolis Field in Brazil. It will remove carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide from streams of approximately 16MMSCFD of natural gas. The agreement also includes approximately 4,000hp of compression equipment at three associated locations.
Exterran will deliver engineering, procurement and construction management services at the three stations, and also will provide operations and maintenance for gas treatment and compression under a 10-year agreement.
