Baker Hughes, an energy technology company, announced Wednesday it has received a letter of award by ADNOC Gas, for and on behalf of ADNOC, to provide two electric liquefaction systems (e-LNG) for the Ruwais LNG project in the United Arab Emirates. The award is expected to be booked in the fourth quarter of 2023 and was announced at this year’s ADIPEC, one of the largest energy industry events in the world.

The LNG trains will be driven by Baker Hughes’ 75 megawatt BRUSH electric motor technology and feature the company’s state-of-the-art compressor technology, making Ruwais LNG one of the first all-electric LNG projects in the Middle East. The overall production capacity of the trains is expected to be 9.6 million tons per annum.

Through the Ruwais LNG growth project, ADNOC intends to more than double its LNG production capacity to meet increased global demand for natural gas. The Ruwais plant, which is designed with electric-powered processing facilities, will run on clean power, making it one of the lowest carbon intensity LNG facilities in the world.

“This award represents an important milestone for Baker Hughes in the LNG market and demonstrates the strength of our portfolio, which we strategically expanded through the BRUSH Power Generation acquisition in 2022,” said Ganesh Ramaswamy, executive vice president of Industrial & Energy Technology at Baker Hughes. “Over the next decade, electrification will play a critical role in the energy transition, enabling further reduction of the carbon emissions footprint of natural gas. We are incredibly honored that ADNOC Gas, for and on behalf of ADNOC, has chosen Baker Hughes as a trusted partner to support their vision to increase LNG production while further decarbonizing their operations.”
