The present energy availability and pricing situation has caused many users to consider the use of less refined fuels for combustion gas turbines. The use of these fuels will have a definite impact on the cost of operation and unit availability. It is necessary that a user be aware of the extent of this impact prior to making the decision to convert to a lower quality fuel. This paper discusses the method employed by one user to evaluate this impact and presents the results that were obtained.
