Siemens is to supply the initial 10 compressor trains for Magnolia LNG, a wholly owned subsidiary of Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd (LNG Ltd). LNG Ltd is developing an up to 8 million tpy mid-scale LNG facility based on their OSMR® LNG technology.
“We are pleased that LNG Ltd has awarded us with the supply of the main compression equipment and drivers for the Magnolia LNG project. LNG Ltd’s modular construction approach represents a very strong platform in a growing market. Our solution offers best-in-class emissions performance, space saving design and lower expected lifecycle costs,” said Lisa Davis, Member of the Managing Board of Siemens AG.
The LNG project will utilise approximately 115 acres of available land in Lake Charles through a long-term lease with the Lake Charles Harbor & Terminal District.
Siemens will supply a total of eight refrigeration compressors and two feed gas booster compressors for the initial two LNG trains. Four Mixed Refrigerant (MR) Siemens STC-SV compressors will each be driven by a Siemens SGT-750 gas turbine, while four Ammonia Refrigerant (AR) STC-SV compressors will each be driven by a Siemens SST-600 steam turbine. Two additional motor driven feed gas booster compressors will be delivered.
The subsequent two LNG trains necessary to achieve the full 8 million tpy for Magnolia would bring the total number of compressor trains to 20 at this site.
