Baker Hughes and Tellurian to Supply Equipment for Liquified Natural Gas Project

Natural gas company Tellurian and Baker Hughes entered an agreement to supply eight main refrigerant compression packages for phase one of the Driftwood LNG (liquefied natural gas) project in Louisiana. The agreement secures a delivery schedule for the eight LM6000PF+ gas turbines, main refrigerant compressors and control units required for phase one of the project, supporting Driftwood’s ability to achieve initial liquefied natural gas production in 2027.

Baker Hughes is also on schedule to complete, by early next year, fabrication of the electric-powered, zero-emissions integrated compressor line (ICL) packages and other turbomachinery equipment for Driftwood Pipeline 200, following the award in 2022.

“Bechtel has done a tremendous job preparing the site and has already completed the piling and compressor foundations for plant one of Driftwood LNG,” Octávio Simões, president and CEO of Tellurian, said. “This agreement with Baker Hughes firms up our plans to secure the critical technology for Driftwood phase one. We value our continued, long-term relationship with Baker Hughes for delivering industry leading manufactured equipment and technology solutions to enhance our ability to deliver clean energy to the world.”

“This agreement builds on the established collaboration between Baker Hughes and Tellurian as we continue to execute on our scope for the Driftwood Pipeline 200, which includes providing zero-emissions ICL compressor packages for their first deployment in North America,” Lorenzo Simonelli, chairman and CEO of Baker Hughes, said. “Leveraging our 30 years of experience in LNG and broad portfolio of technologies for the natural gas value chain, we are pleased to support Tellurian also for the Driftwood liquefaction plant with our gas technology solutions.”
