Golden Pass Supply Contract Goes to BHGE
A McDermott-Chiyoda-Zachry JV will build the LNG export facility.

Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) reported Thursday that it will supply turbomachinery equipment for the construction of the Golden Pass LNG export facility in Sabine Pass, Texas.

Partners ExxonMobil Corp. and Qatar Petroleum announced Feb. 5 that they had decided to proceed with Golden Pass and expect to break ground on the $10 billion-plus project this quarter. The companies have also awarded a joint venture of McDermott International, Inc., Chiyoda International Corp. and Zachry Group the mega-contract to build the facility, which will produce approximately 16 million tons per year of liquefied natural gas (LNG).

“We are proud to be working with Golden Pass on this innovative LNG project,” Rod Christie, president and CEO of BHGE’s Turbomachinery & Process Solutions unit, said in a written statement from his company. “Today’s announcement builds on our 30-year-plus track record of delivering high-availability and reliable LNG technology, with low total cost of operations.”

BHGE will supply turbomachinery equipment for three LNG trains, including six gas turbines and 12 centrifugal compressions, the company stated Thursday.

“Our vision is to be the premier LNG exporter in North America,” Golden Pass LNG President Sean Ryan stated in BHGE’s announcement. “To accomplish that, we have to be reliable and cost competitive, and BHGE’s long history of delivering first class, large-scale LNG projects was a clear fit to help us deliver on our goal.”
