This paper describes the historical data for gas turbine driven compressor and power generation packages built for the North Sea. The period surveyed spans from the start-up of Ekofisk to the present day. The paper covers 60 platforms in the Norwegian and UK sectors and a number in the Danish and Dutch sectors. The data gathered for each platform include details of gas turbines, compressors, gearboxes, couplings, tube and seat oil systems, skid arrangements, air filtration systems, exhaust systems and so forth. In total, approximately 320 electric power generating sets and 380 compressors are included, representing 5.5 million kW. The trend over the survey period is found from the recorded data, and a comparison is made between the Norwegian and UK sectors.
