Baker Hughes will supply turbomachinery equipment for the expansion of Cheniere Energy Inc.'s LNG facility in Corpus Christi, Texas, the company said June 14.
Cheniere appointed Bechtel Oil Gas and Chemicals Inc. as their engineering, procurement and construction partner for the project, and Bechtel contracted Baker Hughes to provide turbomachinery equipment for the third train consisting of six PGT25+G4 DLE gas turbines driving various compressors.
Baker Hughes provided the same equipment for two other trains already under construction at Corpus Christi, and similar technology for five trains at Cheniere's Sabine Pass plant.
Cheniere announced a positive final investment decision and the plan to issue a full notice to continue construction on the third liquefaction train at its Corpus Christi liquefaction project. When all three trains are completed, the aggregate nominal production capacity of the project is expected to be approximately 13.5 million tons per annum of LNG.
The Corpus Christi site is located on the La Quinta Channel on the northeast side of Corpus Christi Bay in San Patricio County, Texas.
