Siemens Wins Order at US Calcasieu Pass LNG Project
Germany's Siemens announced on February 20 it had won a contract for the supply of three boil-off gas (BOG) compressor packages for US firm Venture Global LNG's planned Calcasieu Pass gas liquefaction plant in Louisiana.
The contract covers the engineering, manufacturing and testing of two centrifugal BOG compression packages and one reciprocating BOG compression package, all of which will be driven directly by electric motors. Siemens plans to deliver the equipment in the summer and autumn of this year.
"Siemens has a long track record of providing cryogenic boil-off gas compressors for the LNG industry worldwide," Siemens' LNG vice president Matthew Russell said in a statement. “The Calcasieu Pass LNG Project involves an innovative modular, mid-scale configuration that enables Venture Global to produce low-cost LNG with a shorter construction schedule. Siemens was able to tailor a custom solution with added flexibility to match the EPC’s project schedule and start-up sequence.”
The 10mn mt/yr Calcasieu Pass terminal is on track to start up in 2022. Venture Global took a final investment decision on its construction in August 2019.
