Sabine Pass LNG Picks GE Compression Trains
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
GE Oil & Gas will supply gas compression trains for Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility in western Louisiana, U.S.A., giving the receiving terminal the capability to export LNG.
The company will provide 12 PGT25+G4 aeroderivative gas turbines to drive the first two liquefaction trains, each of which will have the capacity to produce 4.5 mtpa of LNG.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved Cheniere’s plans to build up to four liquefaction trains at Sabine Pass. The company is expected to decide on construction of the other two trains in the first quarter of 2013.
The PGT25+G4 aeroderivative gas turbine is derived from CF6 aircraft engines. It contains GE’s high-speed, 34-MW gas turbine, the LM2500+G4, coupled with a two-stage high-speed power turbine module with increased flow capacity.
