Baker Hughes has been awarded the contract to supply turbine bypass valves and condenser back-pressure dump tubes to Exxon Mobil’s Golden Pass LNG site through the new expanded combined cycle power plant procured through Chiyoda Corporation of Japan.

The Exxon Mobil Golden Pass LNG project is adding liquefaction and export capabilities to its existing facility in Sabine Pass, and will increase overall export capacity to approximately 16 million tons of LNG per year. The current Golden Pass LNG terminal campus include five 155,000 cubic meter LNG storage tanks, two marine berths capable of offloading various sized ocean-going LNG carriers and process facilities capable of re-gasifying LNG to produce approximately 2 billion standard cubic feet of natural gas per day. To support this complex, Exxon Mobil is expanding the site infrastructure with a combined cycle power plant to locally integrate powering of the site. With years of excellent service to the Sabine Pass facility, Baker Hughes Masoneilan has the honor to supply critical turbine bypass valves to protect the utilities unit of the plant. 

This award comprises of (3) 18” x 36” 84000 Series SteamForm, turbine bypass stations, with integral steam conditioning technology. This steam conditioning system provides control of steam flow, pressure, and temperature in a single unit. The customized design solution also includes downstream back-pressure dump tubes, also referred to as a spargers, to create a full steam system solution to handle high pressure drops, steam temperature control and system generated noise reduction. A separate spray water supply valve using Masoneilan LinclonLog anti-cavitation trim technology is used to manage a high-pressure water source for downstream desuperheating. These features combine to provide the site with tightly managed steam parameters, ensuring the power station works at minimal effort.

Coordinated efforts of the Baker Hughes Masoneilan teams in Japan, Kuala Lumpur, France and United States working with Chiyoda Japan were able to provide this state-of-the-art solution, meeting all of the stringent requirements Chiyoda and ExxonMobil imposed for this project.
