GE Equipment To Power Cove Point Liquefaction Project


Published:

GE Oil & Gas has received contracts to supply gas compression trains for Dominion’s Cove Point Liquefaction Project in Lusby, Maryland.

Adding liquefaction capabilities will transform the existing Cove Point liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal into the first LNG terminal capable of exporting LNG on the U.S. East Coast, GE Oil & Gas said.

GE will supply two Frame 7EA DLN1 (Dry Low NOx) gas turbine packages to drive the GE refrigeration compressors. This single-train design will have the capacity to produce 5.25 million metric tons per annum (mtpa) of LNG.

The technology being supplied to Dominion consists of GE’s MS7001 EA industrial gas turbines, which feature DLN technology and provide 86 MW ISO shaft power while reducing emissions. GE’s Frame 7 DLN accepts a wide range of fuel and has more than 500 units in the DLN fleet, the company said.
