Siemens Energy to Supply Gas Turbines for Mozambique LNG Project
Siemens Energy has been awarded a contract to supply emissions-reducing power generation equipment and boil-off gas compressors to the Mozambique liquefied natural gas (LNG) Project, in the Cabo Delgado province, led by French oil and gas company Total.
Under the contract, Siemens Energy will supply six SGT-800 industrial gas turbines, which will be used for onsite power generation and also deliver four centrifugal compressors for boil-off gas service in 2021.
“Mozambique LNG is the country’s first onshore LNG development project and will play a key role in meeting the increasing demand for energy in the Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Indian sub-continent markets,” said Thorbjoern Fors, Executive Vice President of Siemens Energy Industrial Applications. “We look forward to helping Total drive toward the lowest possible plant emissions profile and contributing to its goal of delivering clean, reliable energy to customers across the globe.”
The LNG Project involves development of offshore gas fields in the offshore Area 1 Block of the deep-water Rovuma Basin and the construction of a 12.88 million metric tons per year LNG facility.
