Baker Hughes noted that the agreement streamlines the implementation of Texas LNG’s ‘Green by Design’ strategy.
This strategy focuses on leveraging locally accessible renewable energy sources to fuel the facility and operate the electric motors within the plant.
In a press statement, Baker Hughes said: “This green-ready infrastructure allows Texas LNG to eliminate most CO₂ emissions to less than half of a typical LNG export project, making it one of the lowest-emitting liquefaction facilities in the world.”
Baker Hughes chairman and CEO Lorenzo Simonelli said: “Natural gas and LNG will continue to play a critical role in the energy transition, and we are pleased to support Texas LNG with our leading technologies and partnership.”
The Texas LNG project is expected to create more than 1,200 jobs during the construction phase and over 100 new full-time jobs.
Construction of the facility is scheduled to start in 2024.
