Baker Hughes to Provide Equipment for Commonwealth LNG’s Louisiana Plant
08.23.2023 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

August 23, 2023 [LNG Prime]- Houston-based Commonwealth LNG said that its liquefied natural gas facility under development in Cameron Parish, Louisiana will use gas turbines and other equipment from energy services firm Baker Hughes.

 

In that regard, Commonwealth LNG signed a strategic agreement with Baker Hughes related to the 9.3 mtpa plant in Cameron, according to a statement by Commonwealth LNG.

Baker Hughes will work with Commonwealth LNG on “maximizing the project’s output and minimizing emissions through the use of Baker Hughes’ LM9000 aeroderivative gas turbine technology – the most efficient in the 65+ MW power range,” it said.

The LM9000 equipment order is expected to be granted in conjunction with financial close of the Commonwealth LNG project, which is expected in the first quarter of 2024, the firm said.

Also, the collaboration will feature other key Baker Hughes equipment, services and software in support of the project, including its compressor technology, spare parts, maintenance services and Cordant asset performance management suite.

“Commonwealth LNG views its relationship with Baker Hughes as vital to ensuring that Commonwealth LNG commences production in early 2027,” the LNG terminal developer said.

Commonwealth LNG recently announced it had closed an investment of development capital from private funds managed by Kimmeridge Energy Management and the investment completes the development funding required for the firm to reach FID.

The two firms have also agreed in principle on terms for a 20-year, 2 mtpa LNG offtake commitment from the facility along with the associated gas supply.

In November last year, Commonwealth LNG received approval from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to build its facility in Louisiana.

Prior to that, Commonwealth LNG finalized a supply deal with Australian LNG firm Woodside in September.

The deals are for the supply of up to 2.5 mtpa of LNG over 20 years to Woodside Energy Trading Singapore from Commonwealth’s LNG export facility.

Commonwealth LNG is planning to build the liquefaction and export facility on the west bank of the Calcasieu Ship Channel at the mouth of the Gulf of Mexico near Cameron, Louisiana.

The facility also includes six 50,000-cbm LNG storage tanks, one jetty with the capacity to service vessels from 10,000 cbm to 216,000 cbm, and a pipeline.
