Siemens Gas and Power has won a contract from CCZ JV to supply three boil-off gas compressor trains to the Golden Pass LNG export terminal.

CCZ JV is a joint venture between Chiyoda International Corporation, McDermott International, and Zachry Group.

Under the contract, Siemens Gas and Power will supply three cryogenic boil-off gas (BOG) compressor trains for the LNG export terminal in Sabine Pass, Texas, US.

The scope of supply contract will the engineering, manufacturing, and testing of the three, single-shaft centrifugal BOG compression packages.

Siemens Gas and Power will also be responsible for the installation and commissioning activities of the compressor trains at the export terminal.

In addition, the company will also provide steam turbine generator sets for the project.

“We believe our expertise in the design and manufacturing of BOG compressors, along with our strong presence in the LNG market, played an integral role in securing the Golden Pass compression contract,” said Matthew Russell, Executive Vice President of LNG for Siemens Energy Oil & Gas Division.

The Golden Pass LNG export terminal is a joint venture between affiliates of Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil.

It will be integrated into the existing Golden Pass LNG import terminal.

The export facility will involve the construction of three liquefaction process trains, each with a nominal output of approximately 5.2 million metric tons per annum (MTPA).

In February, the German industrial giant Siemens had won a contract to supply three BOG packages for the Calcasieu Pass LNG project in US.

The Calcasieu Pass LNG export facility, which is currently under construction, is being implemented by Venture Global Calcasieu Pass, a subsidiary of Venture Global LNG.
