According to the statement, the design utilises ConocoPhillips’ Optimized Cascade® technology as part of a broader partnership that was previously announced by KBR and ConocoPhillips.
The mid scale LNG facilities designed under the agreement between KBR and BHGE will reportedly standardise around BHGE’s proven gas turbine drive technologies, featuring BHGE’s LM2500+G5 and LM6000PF gas turbines. Installed in KBR facilities, these gas turbine technologies will provide ideal power ratings, speed and power flexibility, long maintenance intervals and industry leading efficiencies.
According to the statement, both parties will leverage their experiences and service portfolios to provide standardised, low CAPEX LNG solutions for both grassroots and existing LNG assets.
Farhan Mujib, KBR President, Hydrocarbons – Delivery Solutions, said: “BHGE and KBR have a well-established 40-year history and partnership successfully delivering LNG projects.
“This allows us to further enhance our cost effective standardised approach to LNG design, minimising CAPEX and OPEX for our clients.”
Rod Christie, President and CEO Turbomachinery Process & Solutions – BHGE, added: “We are delighted that KBR has selected our highly efficient and reliable gas turbine technology as part of the development of its standardised mid scale LNG design.
“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.”
