Siemens Gas and Power has been awarded a contract to supply two SGT-400 gas turbine compression packages for Midcoast Energy, LLC’s CJ Express pipeline expansion project in east Texas. WHC Energy Services, supported by Universal Pegasus International, will be the engineering, procurement and contracting (EPC) provider for the pipeline expansion project.

Siemens Gas and Power will supply two SGT-400 mechanical-drive compression packages that are capable of producing a total of 39,000-horsepower for an expansion at an existing compression station. The SGT-400 compressor package is a highly integrated, turnkey gas turbine and centrifugal compressor solution. With field-proven, efficient, and reliable components, this package offers a modular configuration for fast deployment, dry low emissions (DLE) combustion technology for emissions compliance even at low loads, and expert, 24x7 support for responsive service.

Siemens Gas and Power’s legacy RFBB compressors offer some of the highest compression efficiency in the midstream market while delivering the lowest CO2 and methane gas emissions compared to similar designs.

The SGT-400 gas turbine will be packaged at Siemens Gas and Power’s Telge Road facility in Houston, Texas, while the compressors will be built at the company’s facility in Olean, N.Y.

The first gas turbine compression trains will be shipped later this year to support commercial operation for early next year.
