Baker Hughes to Supply Super Efficient LM9000 Gas Turbine for PETRONAS Sabah LNG Project

Baker Hughes, an energy technology company, announced it has been awarded an order to be booked in the first quarter of 2023, by Black & Veatch, a subcontractor to the JGC and Samsung Heavy Industries consortium, to deliver two LM9000-driven compressor trains for the PETRONAS nearshore liquefied natural gas facility in Sabah, Malaysia.

Baker Hughes will provide two LM9000-powered compressor trains of 1 MTPA each. The contract also includes an order for spare parts.

About the LM9000:

Baker Hughes LM9000 is the most powerful and most efficient aeroderivative gas turbine in its class, 65+ megawatt (MW), with simple cycle efficiency of 44% and a power output 15% higher compared to industry peers. This efficiency is key to driving lower carbon intensity and, combined with lower nitrogen oxides (NOx) emissions targets, (15 ppm in dry condition, 40% lower than competing technology) makes for a more environmentally sensitive solution. Its compact, modular package allows for fast installation and lower costs than field-erected units. Ideal for stringent space requirements (e.g. offshore), the LM9000 is designed for easy inspection and condition-based maintenance — delivering high reliability and maintainability.

Thanks to the flexibility of the gas turbine unit, the LM9000 can be applied in power generation to boost the supply of low carbon electricity to the world’s energy plants and power grids.
