This paper presents the authors’ perspective regarding the growth of gas turbine technology as applied to the industrial market for the next two decades. Although emphasis is placed on off-shore (platform and floating production) applications, the effects of the advance in technology of gas turbines for land based operations is included. Past trends in the advancement of basic gas turbine technology are utilized as the basis to establish this forecast.

An introduction and a description of the Air Bottoming Cycle, the Intercooled Gas Turbine Cycle, and a hybrid gas turbine combining aeroderivative and heavy frame design are also included.
