The contract was awarded by CCZ JV, a joint venture between Chiyoda International Corporation, McDermott International, and Zachry Group.

The export facility in Sabine Pass, Texas, USA, is a joint venture between units of Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil. It will be integrated into the existing Golden Pass LNG import terminal, Siemens noted.

The project includes the construction of three liquefaction process trains. Each train will have a nominal output of approximately 5.2 million metric tons per annum (MTPA).

Siemens Gas and Power’s scope of supply covers the engineering, manufacturing, and testing of the three, single-shaft centrifugal BOG compression packages. The company will also deliver installation and commissioning activities.

Each of the compressor packages will be driven by a 6.8-megawatt (MW) electric motor. Manufacturing, testing, and packaging will take place in Duisburg, Germany.

The project scope also includes a frame agreement to supply all low-voltage electric motors and electric variable speed drives (1 – 200 horsepower) and all medium-voltage (250 – 1,500 horsepower) electric motors.

In addition to the BOG compressor trains, Siemens Gas and Power will also provide steam turbine generator sets for the Golden Pass LNG export terminal.
