Siemens Energy To Supply Equipment for Mozambique LNG
The LNG project includes development of offshore gas fields in Mozambique’s Area 1 and a liquefaction plant with a capacity in excess of 12 mtpa. The gas turbines are slated for delivery in 2H 2021 and 1H 2022, and the compressors are expected in 2021.
CCS, a joint venture between Saipem and McDermott, contracted Siemens Energy to supply emissions-reducing power-generation equipment and boil-off gas compressors for the Total-led $20-billion Mozambique LNG Project in the Cabo Delgado province on Africa’s east coast.
Siemens Energy will supply six SGT-800 industrial gas turbines for low-emissions onsite power generation. The 54-MW turbine rating has a gross efficiency of 39%, equipped with a dry low-emission combustion system suited for a wide load range.
Siemens will also supply four centrifugal compressors for boil-off gas service, which feature an inlet guide vane system to optimize power consumption according to changes in operational parameters such as inlet temperature and outlet pressure.
The gas turbines are expected to be delivered in 2H 2021 and 1H 2022, and the compressors are expected to be delivered in 2021.
After reaching final investment decision in June 2019, Total secured up to $16 billion for the Mozambique LNG project in July. The LNG project includes development of offshore gas fields in Mozambique’s Area 1 and a liquefaction plant with a capacity in excess of 12 mtpa.
The equipment order for the Mozambique LNG project also follows a June agreement between Total and Siemens Energy to advance new concepts for low-emissions LNG production. Siemens is conducting studies of alternative liquefaction and power-generation plant designs to decarbonize LNG-facility development and operation.
