GE Oil & Gashas shipped two liquefied natural gas (LNG) compressor trains for Dominion's Cove Point LNG Export facility, currently under construction by IHI E&C International Corp. and Kiewit Energy Co. The LNG Liquefaction plant located on the Chesapeake Bay in Lusby, MD, will produce about 5.25 million metric tons of LNG annually when completed in late 2017 and will be the first LNG terminal capable of exporting LNG on the U.S. East Coast (see Daily GPI, May 7). Each of the two identical trains includes an FR7 Gas Turbine plus three centrifugal compressors and a 20 MW two-pole induction electric helper motor provided by GE's Power Conversion business. GE will also provide two auxiliary trains for Cove Point.
