KBR Mid-Scale LNG Design to Use BHGE Turbines
The standardized mid-scale liquefied natural gas (LNG) reference design that KBR, Inc. is developing will integrate Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) gas turbine driver technologies, KBR reported Monday.
Under the agreement between KBR and BHGE, KBR’s mid-scale LNG facility designs will standardize around BHGE’s LM250+G5 and LM6000PF gas turbines. KBR stated that the gas turbine technologies installed in its LNG facilities will provide ideal power ratings, speed and power flexibility, long maintenance intervals and industry-leading efficiencies. The design also uses ConocoPhillips’ proprietary Optimized Cascade technology under a broader partnership with the integrated oil and gas company, KBR added.
“BHGE and KBR have a well-established 40-year history and partnership successfully delivering LNG projects,” Farhan Mujib, president of KBR’s Hydrocarbons-Delivery Solutions unit, said in a written statement. “This allows us to further enhance our cost-effective standardized approach to LNG design, minimizing CAPEX and OPEX to our clients.”
KBR also stated that it has designed one-third of the world’s LNG production for more than four decades.
“We are delighted that KBR has selected our highly efficient and reliable gas turbine technology as part of the development of its standardized mid-scale LNG design,” Rod Christie, president and CEO of BHGE’s Turbomachinery Process and Solutions business, said in the KBR announcement. “We welcome the opportunity to strategically work together with key partners like KBR, looking at our collective solutions across the value chain to develop a more competitive solution for customers.”
