Siemens Wins Compression Contract for Golden Pass LNG Export Project

  • Siemens Gas and Power will supply three boil-off gas compressor trains to the Golden Pass LNG export terminal
  • A 6.8-megawatt electric motor will drive each compressor package

Siemens Gas and Power was awarded a contract from CCZ JV (a joint venture between Chiyoda International Corporation, McDermott International, and Zachry Group) to supply three cryogenic boil-off gas (BOG) compressor trains for the Golden Pass LNG export terminal in Sabine Pass, Texas, USA. The export facility is a joint venture between affiliates of Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil and will be integrated into the existing Golden Pass LNG import terminal. It will include the construction of three liquefaction process trains, each with a nominal output of approximately 5.2 million metric tons per annum (MTPA).

Siemens Gas and Power’s scope of supply covers the engineering, manufacturing, and testing of the three, single-shaft centrifugal BOG compression packages, along with all installation and commissioning activities. Each of the compressor packages will be driven by a 6.8-megawatt (MW) electric motor. Manufacturing, testing, and packaging will take place in Duisburg, Germany.

The project scope also includes a frame agreement to supply all low-voltage electric motors and electric variable speed drives (1 – 200 horsepower) and all mediumvoltage (250 – 1,500 horsepower) electric motors.

In addition to the BOG compressor trains, Siemens Gas and Power will also provide steam turbine generator sets for the Golden Pass LNG export terminal.
