The three Frame 6B machines will be manufactured at GE Energy's plant in Belfort, France and packaged at
GE Oil & Gas facilities in Massa, Italy. The units will be shipped to Qatar during the first two quarters of
2007, with commercial operation scheduled for the third quarter of 2007. GE's contract also includes
electrical balance of plant equipment.

The gas turbines will be used for base load operation, with a wide range of natural gas composition as the
primary fuel. The units will be equipped with GE Dry Low NOx combustion systems that enable them to meet
Qatar Liquefied Gas Company's requirement for NOx emissions.

'According to World Energy Outlook, Qatar will have the fastest rate of energy-growth demand in the Middle
East and North Africa region by 2030,' said Mohammad Ayoub, Region General Manager - Middle East for GE
Oil & Gas. 'Qatar will also register the biggest volume increase in gas production and will account for almost GE Frame 6B gas turbine.
one-quarter of the increase in gas inter-regional trade until 2030. This calls for efficient production
technology, which GE has been supplying to Qatar's natural gas and liquefied natural gas (LNG) industries
for more than 35 years. This contract builds further on GE's already broad presence in the country.'
