GE Oil & Gas will supply gas compression trains for Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass liquefaction project.
Cheniere Energy is planning to add liquefaction capabilities to the Sabine Pass LNG terminal making it the first LNG terminal capable of importing and exporting LNG in the U.S.
GE will supply 12 PGT25+G4 aeroderivative gas turbines to drive the first two liquefaction trains of the Sabine Pass Liquefaction Project currently under construction. Each train will have the capacity to produce approximately 4.5 million tpy of LNG.
Cheniere has received regulatory approvals from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to construct up to four liquefaction trains at Sabine Pass. Cheniere is expected to reach a final investment decision on its third and fourth liquefaction trains in the first quarter of 2013, with construction of those trains expected to commence shortly thereafter.
