MHI awarded turbomachinery order for Ust-Luga LNG export plant

The order for the main refrigeration gas compression trains consists of 4 H-100 gas turbines and 10 centrifugal compressors.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI) announced today that MHI has been awarded by Linde Engineering the main refrigeration gas compression trains for the Ust-Luga LNG project in Russia. The order consists of the dual shaft 120 MW H-100 gas turbines and centrifugal compressors.

Led by RusChemAlliance LLC, the 50-50 special-purpose venture of PJSC Gazprom and JSC RusGazDobycha, the Ust-Luga LNG project is a natural gas liquefaction plant designed to apply the liquefaction technology owned by Linde and Gazprom, with two trains to produce upwards of 13 million tons per annum. The liquefaction plant will be located near the Baltic seaport of Ust-Luga, Leningrad Oblast and will utilize natural gas gathered from domestic sources via Russia’s Unified Gas Supply System. The EPC contract was signed in September 2021, with production expected to start in 2026.

MHI President & CEO Seiji Izumisawa said, “We are pleased to supply MHI’s H-100 driven compressor trains for this prestigious Ust-Luga LNG plant. This project will showcase the benefits of MHI’s LNG solution in terms of lower production costs, increased productivity, reduced complexity and lower lifecycle costs, while significantly reducing plant emissions.”
