Global LNG Services (GLS) has made progress on the Main Pass Energy HubTM (MPEH) Deepwater Port project, owned by its US subsidiary, MPEH LLC, and located 16 miles offshore southeast Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico. Two LIQUI-MAXTM vessels, capable of producing a total of 24 million tpy of LNG will be permanently stationed at MPEH.
GLS’ vessel uses industry standard equipment to allow expanded throughput, resulting in CAPEX of below US$400/t of annual liquefaction capacity. GLS’ patented cost advantage enables it to introduce a floating tolling fee model with a floor rate of Henry Hub + 15% + US$1.50/million Btu for pre-processing and liquefaction – and 50/50 sharing of the liquefaction netback value above the US$1.50 level.
Gas will be sourced through interstate pipelines and pre-processed onshore in the Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama, US, region.
Baker Hughes – a GE Company (BHGE) was selected by GLS for both its technology and extensive experience in LNG equipment and services. The LM9000 gas turbine provides effective LNG solutions due to its high power output on a small footprint, its best-in-class efficiency and the latest Dry Low Emission (DLE) technology.
“We are pleased that the LM9000 has been selected by GLS for their project and we are confident that this gas turbine, developed leveraging on 30 years of experience in LNG, will serve a next generation of floating LNG plants,” said Rod Christie, President and CEO, Turbomachinery & Process Solutions, BHGE.
“GLS’ vision is to work collaboratively with the best players in the LNG space to develop lower cost liquefaction solutions for coastal areas. The choice of BHGE technology reflects these goals to supply LNG to the global market at the optimum cost and highest safety and environmental performance,” said Paul L. Eckbo, Chairman and CEO of GLS.
