    Baker Hughes to Provide Two MRCs for Sempra Infrastructure's Port Arthur LNG Phase 1 Project

    March 31, 2023 - Egypt Oil & Gas


      Following a positive Final Investment Decision (FID), Baker Hughes, an energy technology company, has been awarded an order by Bechtel to supply two Main Refrigerant Compressors (MRCs) for Sempra Infrastructure's Port Arthur LNG Phase 1 project in Jefferson County, Texas.

      Sempra Infrastructure aims to help U.S. meet continuing growth in demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) by providing critical new export infrastructure in the U.S through the Port Arthur LNG Phase 1 project, Sempra Infrastructure.

      With a nameplate capacity of roughly 13 MTPA, Baker Hughes will provide four Frame 7 turbines coupled with eight centrifugal compressors over two LNG trains, as well as two electric motor powered compressors for the plant's boosting services.

      'We are delighted to be working with Bechtel and Sempra Infrastructure to supply critical equipment for this innovative LNG project,' said Baker Hughes Chairman and CEO Lorenzo Simonelli. 'Baker Hughes has been committed to LNG for over 30 years, and today's announcement builds on our track record of delivering high-availability and reliable LNG technology, with low total cost of operations, further enabling increased exports of LNG from the U.S. Gulf Coast to meet global energy needs.'

      Sempra Infrastructure now has access to the greatest production levels possible for the plant's design, as well as operational flexibility, high availability, and reduced emissions thanks to Baker Hughes' well-proven gas technology solution, which was chosen for Port Arthur LNG Phase 1. The Frame 7 turbine has a strong track record for energy efficiency, availability, dependability, and upkeep.
