MELBOURNE, Australia, August 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Aggreko, the global leader in the supply of temporary power and temperature
control , has begun installation of a power package to support construction of
downstream development operations for the Papua New Guinea Liquefied Natural
Gas (PNG LNG) project. The project, which seeks to develop Papua New Guinea's
natural gas reserves, is jointly owned by four Asian LNG customers: China
Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (Sinopec), Osaka Gas Company Limited, The
Tokyo Electric Power Company Inc., and Chinese Petroleum Corporation. Aggreko
has been awarded the contract to provide a 4 MW power package to enable the
timely commissioning of electrical pumps and compressors until utility power
becomes available for the LNG plant. The contract was awarded by Kanto Sangyo
Co., which is subcontracted to the Chiyoda JGC Joint Venture as the main
contractor of the PNG LNG project. "The Aggreko team in Japan has a strong
relationship with Kanto Sangyo Co., a construction equipment company with a
long service history to Chiyoda and JGC. Since the project is located in Papua
New Guinea, it was essential to provide localised insight combined with global
expertise, into the requirements for the PNG LNG development" said George
Whyte, Managing Director for Aggreko's Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands
and Papua New Guinean operations. "The project required a package that was
tailored to the specific requirements of the site. Our downstream oil and gas
experts were instrumental in a scoping discussion held at Chiyoda joint
venture headquarters in Yokohama, Japan, drawing on years of experience in
designing power and temperature control packages for the very specific and
specialised needs of the sector." The project highlights the ability of large
scale, global power rental companies like Aggreko to step in and provide
reliable solutions on a local basis, ensuring business continuity and minimal
down-time.

Aggreko provides power and temperature control solutions to customers who need
them either very quickly, or for a short or indeterminate length of time.
Examples would be the supply of power to an industrial site which needs to
service its permanent power supply, supplying a whole city in times of power
shortage, or providing a major sporting event with power and cooling systems.
We serve our customers either through our 194 service centres, which we call
the Local business, or globally through our International Power Projects
business.

In the Local business, which accounts for about half of our revenues, we hire
our equipment to customers, who then operate it for themselves, although we
retain responsibility for servicing and maintaining it. In the International
Power Projects business, which also accounts for about half of our revenues,
we operate as a power producer. We install and operate power plants and we
charge our customers both for providing the generating capacity, and for the
electricity we produce. We design and manufacture equipment specifically for
these requirements in our factory in Dumbarton, Scotland.

Recent customers include the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the
Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games and the power utilities in over 50
countries including the UK, France, Angola, Kenya, Indonesia, Bangladesh,
Venezuela, Chile, Brazil and the USA.

In 2012 we fulfilled almost 45,000 customers' assignments and 70% of those who
responded to our research gave us a recommendation of 9 or 10 out of 10.
