Magnolia LNG has awarded a contract to Siemens to provide eight refrigeration compressors and two feed gas booster compressors for the initial two LNG trains of the mid-scale LNG facility in the US.

The facility will adapt Liquefied Natural Gas’ (LNGL) OSMR LNG technology, and is designed with a capacity of eight million tons per annum (mtpa).

Siemens will supply four mixed refrigerant (MR) Siemens STC-SV compressors powered by Siemens SGT-750 gas turbine as well as four ammonia refrigerant (AR) STC-SV compressors which are powered by a Siemens SST-600 steam turbine.

Two additional LNG trains will be required to achieve the targeted capacity of eight mtpa for the project, Siemens said.

Siemens managing board member Lisa Davis said: "LNGL’s modular construction approach represents a very strong platform in a growing market.

"Our solution offers best-in-class emissions performance, space saving design and lower expected lifecycle costs."

Separately, Siemens has partnered with LNGL to establish a supplier alliance agreement (SAA) for process compression equipment & drivers for future LNGL projects which will be based on its OSMR LNG technology.
