BG Group orders Rolls-Royce gas turbines

LNG Industry,

BG Group has selected Rolls-Royce Trent 60 DLE industrial gas turbine packages, to be used as the drivers for the main refrigeration compressors at the Lake Charles LNG export project in Louisiana, US.

BG Group and Rolls-Royce have also agreed the terms of a Long Term Service Agreement covering the support and maintenance of the equipment for up to 25 years that will help deliver high levels of availability for this LNG plant.

Both the equipment and service contracts are expected to commence in H1 2015, subject to the Lake Charles LNG plant permitting process and final investment decisions by BG Group and Energy Transfer, the project developers.

Each of the three LNG trains will use four Trent 60 DLE gas turbines as part of the Air Products C3MR refrigeration process.

Each train will use two Trent 60 DLE gas turbines driving propane compressors and two Trent 60 DLE gas turbines driving mixed refrigerant compressors for a total of 12 Trent 60 DLE gas turbines in the plant.
