The paper deals with design criteria and operating experience of Authors’ Company Gas Turbine Power Plants operating on crude oils from different sources. In particular a group of power stations located in Middle East is described, where crude oils from different fields are used. While two of the above power stations use basically the same crude oil, the other ones are fed by different fuel sources. Accordingly, different fuel handling and treatment plants have been selected, different problems have been encountered and different operating experiences have been accumulated.

The positive operating results obtained confirm that reliable operation on crude oil requires each individual application be “tailor made” on the basis of the knowledge of the relevant fuels properties.
