26 August 2015, News Wires – Siemens has been awarded a contract to supply an initial 10 compressor trains for the Magnolia LNG project being developed in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
The German technology supplier will provide eight refrigeration compressors and two feed gas booster compressors for the initial two liquefied natural gas trains to be installed at the 8 million tonne-per-annum facility under the $2.2 billion project being developed by LNG Ltd (LNGL).
No value was disclosed for the contract.
Two more LNG trains will be installed at a later date to bring the plant up to full capacity that will require an additional 10 compressor trains.
Siemens has also struck a supplier alliance agreement with LNGL for process compression equipment and drivers for the latter’s future LNG projects, possibly paving the way for future similar awards on the Magnolia scheme.
