AGIP Ecuador + Wärtsilä

Lifecycle solutions to support the oil and gas industry

AGIP Ecuador is the operator of the 40,000 bpd Villano oil field in the Oriente jungle in Ecuador. Since the drilling site is located in a national park, the environment at the site is conserved by transporting the oil by flowlines to the Central Processing Facility site some 44 km away.

Electricity needed for the drilling sites, the production wells, the flowline pumps and the central processing facility site is produced in the power plant located close to the central processing facility.

The Wärtsilä power plant runs on crude oil and consists of five Wärtsilä 16V32LN generating sets, each producing 5.3 MW, and one Wärtsilä 20V32 generating set. The power plant was initially designed and constructed for three generating sets, which came online in June 1999. The plant has been extended three times, twice with one 16V32 generating set and once with one 20V32 generating set.

In addition to the generating sets, Wärtsilä also delivered control systems, fuel and cooling systems and other auxiliaries.

The AGIP Villano power plant has been the front runner for crude oil fired Wärtsilä 32LN engines.
