In this research paper, basic factors: Plant Capacity, Plant Use Factor, Load Factor and Utilization Factor were used to estimate the performance of a Central Gas Turbine Power Station. Information data were obtained from Edgeba gas turbine power station Delta state, Nigeria. These are inventory records of monthly energy generation between 2002 and 2012 and operational statistics. The data were used to determine the plant capacity, plant use factor, load factor and utilization factor. However, Edgeba gas turbine power station has Capacity Factor of 20.4% as against the target of 40-65% (ISO Standard), Plant Use Factor of 29.14546% as against the target of 50-70% (ISO Standard), Load Factor of 81.76% as against 80% (ISO Standard), and Utilization Factor of 49.1-58.9% as against 85% (ISO Standard (Gas Turbine Procurement, Conditions and Ratings, 1997).
