In this paper, we will try to study a basic problem, which is the decrease in the performance of the gas stations with the increase in the temperature of the external environment, and with the presence of a lack of production. This study was conducted on one of the gas units produced at Al-Qayyarah gas station to generate electric power. The results based on the data for the first unit of the station proved that the theoretical efficiency of the unit is a function of the two variables, namely the air temperature entering the compressor and the compression ratio and there is a close correlation between the two variables. As the compression ratio is directly proportional to the incoming air temperature, so when choosing the network of the unit as a measure of performance and calculating the efficiency, the efficiency in the summer season is greater than in the winter due to the marked decrease in the compressor operation. It was observed choosing the specific energy produced as a measure of performance, and the actual efficiency in the winter season is greater than summer because the specific energy produced in the winter season is greater as it reaches 114.5 MW while it does not exceed 88.1 MW in the summer season.
