Natural Gas

E3 has the experience to make your natural gas project a success.

E3 has provided technical advice on more than 200 new and existing gas-fired power projects totaling more than 85,000 megawatts of capacity. Because our team members have an average of over 25 years of experience, we have worked on a variety of gas-fired power generation technologies over the years. Our project experience also includes heat recovery steam generation experience, and our experience with steam turbine generators includes several models provided by General Electric, Alstom, Mitsubishi, Siemens, and Westinghouse, among others.
