ExxonMobil and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) have formed a partnership to develop and explore new applications for their latest H-100 gas turbines as well as develop compressor technologies to reduce liquefied natural gas (LNG) unit costs.
The pair aim to reduce the complexity of LNG processing plants, lower their lifecycle costs, and cut plant emissions through enhancements to MHPS’s existing two-shaft gas turbine technology.
“ExxonMobil is widely recognized as an industry leader in terms of both project execution and efficiency,” said MHI president Shunichi Miyanaga.
“Collaboration with ExxonMobil will offer us the benefit of the company’s technical expertise, insights, and experience in LNG projects as we develop the next generation of gas turbines – systems that will be even more efficient and cost-effective and will reduce emissions in LNG applications. We are very pleased that ExxonMobil has qualified MHPS’ H-100 gas turbine technology for use in LNG facilities, and we look forward to continuing this work to further develop technology to reduce LNG costs, maximize plant operating rates, and provide stable operation over the long term.”
