BG Group orders Rolls-Royce gas turbines for Lake Charles LNG

Rolls-Royce said that BG Group has selected the Trent 60 DLE industrial gas turbine as the driver for the main refrigeration compressors in the proposed Lake Charles LNG export project in Louisiana, USA.

BG Group and Rolls-Royce have also agreed the terms of a long term service agreement covering the support and maintenance of the equipment for up to 25 years that will help deliver high levels of availability for the LNG plant.

Both the equipment and service contracts are expected to be activated in the first half of 2015, subject to the US LNG plant permitting process and final investment decisions by BG Group and Energy Transfer, the developers of the project.

Each of the three LNG trains will utilise four Trent 60 DLE gas turbines as part of the Air Products C3MR refrigeration process.

Each train will employ two Trent 60 DLE gas turbines driving propane compressors and two Trent 60 DLE gas turbines driving mixed refrigerant compressors for a total of twelve Trent 60 DLE gas turbines in the plant.
