Nigeria LNG selected Siemens Energy to provide a cryogenic boil-off gas (BOG) compression train for its Bonny Island plant. The BOG compression train will play a key role in providing additional BOG handling capability and spares for the existing system.
The new BOG compression train will be driven by a high-efficiency electric motor and includes two Siemens Energy centrifugal compressors.
Located in Finima, Nigeria, the Bonny Island plant has been in operation since 1999. Siemens’ partnership with NLNG and the Bonny Island project dates back over two decades when the plant was first commissioned.
The order further establishes Siemens Energy’s role in LNG boil-off gas compression. The company has a fleet of cryogenic BOG compressors that have accumulated more than 4.2 million hours in service.
Manufacturing, testing, and packaging of the compression train will take place in Duisburg, Germany, with a Free on Board delivery slated for Q4 of 2021.
