Tellurian has signed an agreement with Baker Hughes for the supply of refrigerant compression packages for the first phase of the Driftwood LNG (liquefied natural gas) project in Louisiana, US.

Baker Hughes will supply eight LM6000PF+ gas turbines, main refrigerant compressors and control units for the Driftwood LNG Phase 1 project.

By early next year, Baker Hughes is scheduled to complete fabrication of the electric-powered integrated compressor line (ICL) packages and other turbomachinery equipment for the Driftwood Pipeline’s Line 200, as part of a contract signed in 2022.

Baker Hughes chairman and CEO Lorenzo Simonelli said: “This agreement builds on the established collaboration between Baker Hughes and Tellurian as we continue to execute on our scope for the Driftwood Pipeline 200, which includes providing zero-emissions ICL compressor packages for their first deployment in North America.”

The Driftwood LNG project involves the development of an LNG production and export terminal with a capacity of approximately 27.6 million tonnes per annum (mtpa), on the west bank of the Calcasieu River, south of Lake Charles.

Phase one of the Driftwood LNG project will include two LNG plants with an export capacity of up to 11mtpa.
