Baker Hughes, a GE company, has been selected to supply turbomachinery equipment for the construction of the Golden Pass LNG export facility in Sabine Pass, Texas.

The project is expected to produce around 16 million tons per year of LNG from three LNG trains, for which BHGE will supply the turbomachinery equipment including six gas turbines and 12 centrifugal compressors.

This news comes as Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil made a positive final investment decision (FID) for the Golden Pass LNG export project and the plan to proceed with construction in the first quarter of 2019, the company said in a statement.

BHGE’s technology for three trains will consist of six MS7001 EA heavy-duty gas turbines driving 12 centrifugal compressors.

The project is lead by Golden Pass Products a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum (70 percent) and ExxonMobil (30 percent).

The project’s engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract was awarded to a consortium comprising Chiyoda, McDermott and Zachry and was executed at the FID ceremony, the statement reads.

Construction is expected to begin in the near future and the production from the facility is expected to start up in 2024.
