Glenfarne Energy Transition LLC’s 4-million tonne/year Texas LNG liquefaction plant, to be built in the Port of Brownsville, Tex., has selected Baker Hughes Co., to supply its gas compression, including electric motor drives. Baker Hughes was also granted the ability to take a pre-final investment decision (FID) stake in the plant’s late-stage development.
Texas LNG intends to use locally procured renewable energy to power the plant’s operations, which it says will reduce CO2 emissions to less than half that of a typical LNG export project.
Glenfarne intends to close project financing in 2024 with construction starting shortly thereafter. The equipment order is expected to be granted in conjunction with FID. First LNG is targeted for late 2027 or early 2028.
The company earlier this year received renewed US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approval for Texas LNG, following completion of additional social cost of carbon and environmental justice analyses (OGJ Online, Apr. 25, 2023).
