Said to be the most powerful and most efficient aeroderivative gas turbine, the Baker Hughes’ LM9000 has a simple cycle efficiency of 44% and a power output 15% higher compared with industry peers.

JGC will provide the EPC work for the FLNG topside, the associated onshore facilities and management of the overall project, while Samsung Heavy will undertake the hull EPC work and the topside modular fabrication.

The planned facility, which will be the third FLNG plant to be constructed for the Malaysian offshore gas fields, is the world’s first nearshore project of its kind.
