Magnolia LNG Project To Add A Siemens Gas Turbine

Magnolia LNG (Magnolia) has received a favorable environmental impact statement from the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) on its Magnolia LNG project in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana, USA. The project was originally authorized in 2016, which allowed Magnolia to site, construct, and operate facilities for the liquefaction and export of liquefied natural gas (LNG), but Magnolia requests an amendment to increase the authorized total LNG production capacity from 8 million metric tons per annum (MTPA) to 8.8 MTPA. The increased LNG production capacity would be achieved through the optimization of Magnolia’s final design for the terminal, including additional and modified process equipment. While there will be no new construction, Magnolia plans on adding a mixed refrigeration compressor and associated Siemens SGT-750 gas turbine to increase the available refrigeration power while lowering the NOx emissions and remaining within the original footprint used in the front-end engineering design.
