Baker Hughes Supplies Liquefaction Equipment to Ruwais LNG Project

Published on: 

ADNOC Gas awarded a supply contract to Baker Hughes for the delivery of liquefaction trains, BRUSH electric motors, and compression technology.

Baker Hughes has been granted a letter of award from ADNOC Gas for the delivery of two electric liquefaction train systems (e-LNG) to the Ruwais LNG project in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The LNG trains at Ruwais will be driven by Baker Hughes’ 75-MW BRUSH electric motor and equipped with its compression technology, making it one of the first all-electric LNG projects in the Middle East.

“This award represents an important milestone for Baker Hughes in the LNG market, which we expanded through the BRUSH Power Generation acquisition in 2022,” said Ganesh Ramaswamy, Executive Vice President of Industrial & Energy Technology at Baker Hughes. “Over the next decade, electrification will play a critical role in the energy transition, enabling further reduction of the carbon emissions footprint of natural gas. We are honored that ADNOC Gas, for and on behalf of ADNOC, has chosen Baker Hughes as a partner to support their vision to increase LNG production while further decarbonizing their operations.”


The award, announced at this year’s ADIPEC event, is planned for booking in Q4 2023.The production capacity of the newly installed LNG trains is expected to be 9.6 million tons per annum (MTPA).

ADNOC’s Ruwais LNG growth project, with the assistance of Baker Hughes e-LNG technology, will attempt to more than double its LNG production capacity to satisfy gas demand. In addition to an all-electric LNG train, the Ruwais plant contains electric-powered processing facilities, completely integrating electric power for the project.
