A Dozen Gas Compression Trains For Cheniere Project

GE supplying 12 PGT25+G4 gas turbines

Posted on October 8, 2012

GE Oil & Gas will supply gas compression trains for Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass liquefaction expansion project in Cameron Parish, Louisiana, U.S.A., about 274 km west of Baton Rouge.

Adding liquefaction capabilities will transform the existing Sabine Pass LNG terminal into the first LNG terminal capable of importing and exporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the United States, the company said.

GE will supply 12 PGT25+G4 aeroderivative gas turbines to drive the first two liquefaction trains of the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project currently under construction. Each train will have the capacity to produce 4.5 million metric tons per annum (mtpa) of LNG.

Cheniere has received regulatory approvals from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to construct up to four liquefaction trains at Sabine Pass. Cheniere is expected to reach a final investment decision on its third and fourth liquefaction trains in the first quarter of 2013, with construction of those trains expected to start shortly thereafter.
