Tellurian Inc. has awarded Baker Hughes Co. a contract to provide electric-powered integrated compressor line (ICL) technology and turbomachinery equipment for Lines 200 and 300, a 37-mile, dual 42-in. OD natural gas pipeline project, proposed to run through Beauregard and Calcasieu Parishes, La., to supply Tellurian’s 27.6-million tonne/year Driftwood LNG plant.
The 5.7-bcfd project will initially include four 19-Mw ICL compressors and other turbomachinery equipment for a total of four compressor trains, as well as a LM6000PF+ gas turbine for backup power for the initial phase of the pipeline project at Driftwood’s newbuild 211,200-hp Indian Bayou compressor station in Beauregard Parish.
The equipment will cost $240 million.
Tellurian earlier this year received a positive draft environmental impact statement from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (OGJ Online, May 18, 2022). The company expects first LNG from Driftwood in 2026.
