Tellurian, Baker Hughes Enter Contract for Delivery of Liquefaction Equipment

Published on: 

Baker Hughes will supply Tellurian with a series of liquefaction equipment for Phase I of the Driftwood LNG project.

Baker Hughes and Tellurian Inc. have agreed to supply eight LM6000PF+ gas turbines, main refrigerant compressors, and control units for Phase 1 of the Driftwood facility, which is on track for LNG production in 2027.

“Bechtel has done a tremendous job preparing the site and has already completed the piling and compressor foundations for Plant 1 of Driftwood LNG,” said Octávio Simões, President and CEO of Tellurian. “This agreement with Baker Hughes firms up our plans to secure the critical technology for Driftwood Phase 1. We value our continued, long-term relationship with Baker Hughes for delivering industry leading manufactured equipment and technology solutions to enhance our ability to deliver clean energy to the world.”


Baker Hughes is also in the process of manufacturing an electric-powered integrated compressor line (ICL) package for delivery to the Driftwood Pipeline 200—completion expected by early next year. This ICL package delivery will come alongside additional turbomachinery for the pipeline.

“This agreement builds on the established collaboration between Baker Hughes and Tellurian as we continue to execute on our scope for the Driftwood Pipeline 200, which includes providing zero-emissions ICL compressor packages for their first deployment in North America,” said Lorenzo Simonelli, chairman and CEO of Baker Hughes. “Leveraging our 30 years of experience in LNG and broad portfolio of technologies for the natural gas value chain, we are pleased to support Tellurian also for the Driftwood liquefaction plant with our gas technology solutions.”
