The range of turbomachinery equipment consists of four electric-driven main refrigeration compressors, two electric-driven boil-off gas compressors and six centrifugal pumps.

Powered by renewable electricity, Cedar LNG will be one of the lowest carbon intensity LNG facilities in the world.

The Cedar LNG project brings together the Haisla Nation and Pembina Pipeline Corporation to develop the Haisla Nation-led project. The project is a key element of the Haisla Nation’s economic and social development strategy and will further advance reconciliation by allowing the Haisla Nation, for the first time ever, to directly own and participate in a major industrial development in its territory.

“This award is the latest important milestone for Baker Hughes in the LNG market, demonstrating the strength of our portfolio and our commitment to collaborating with industry partners while providing efficient and lower carbon solutions for the natural gas market,” 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 carbon emissions from natural gas.”
