BAKER HUGHES TO SUPPLY EQUIPMENTS FOR TELLURIAN’S DRIFTWOOD LNG PROJECT
Tellurian, a natural gas company based in Houston, and Baker Hughes announced an agreement to supply eight main refrigerant compression packages for Phase 1 of the Driftwood LNG project. The agreement secures a delivery schedule for the eight LM6000PF+ gas turbines, main refrigerant compressors, and control units required for Phase 1, supporting Driftwood’s ability to achieve initial liquefied natural gas (LNG) production in 2027.
Driftwood LNG is a LNG export facility being constructed on a 1,200 acre site on the Calcasieu River west bank, south of Lake Charles, Louisiana in the U.S. Gulf Coast. Driftwood LNG is designed for a total of ~27.6 mtpa of export, five plants, 20 trains, three storage tanks and three berths.
Baker Hughes is also on schedule to complete, by early next year, fabrication of the electric-powered, zero-emissions Integrated Compressor Line (ICL) packages and other turbomachinery equipment for Driftwood Pipeline 200, following the award in 2022.
