ABB has been awarded an order by Bechtel Energy Inc. to deliver integrated automation, electrical and digital solutions for Phase One of the Rio Grande LNG facility (RGLNG Phase One) in Brownsville, Texas, a project developed by NextDecade Corp.
Bechtel Energy Inc. has undertaken construction of RGLNG Phase One under an engineering, procurement, and construction contract. RGLNG Phase One included three liquefaction trains and supporting infrastructure, and was the largest greenfield project financing in US history, according to NextDecade Corp. The order, booked in 3Q23, marked ABB’s first fully-integrated scope on a major LNG facility. When fully operational, Phase One of the facility is expected to produce 17.6 million tpy of LNG.
“Innovation and collaboration are helping address the energy trilemma of providing affordable, accessible and sustainable energy for all,” said Brandon Spencer, President of ABB Energy Industries. “ABB technology will automate, electrify and digitalise the Rio Grande project, which will further boost global LNG exports and play a vital role in achieving global energy security.”
RGLNG Phase One will utilise ABB products and services to ensure the safe and efficient operation of its LNG production. Automation control systems, digital electrification components and industrial drives will enable RGLNG Phase One to optimise production assets, increase energy efficiency and operate more sustainably.
According to the International Energy Agency1, the US is set to consolidate its position as the world’s largest LNG exporter and growth in LNG supply signals a shift to a more globalised gas marketplace to improve resiliency and the ability to respond to supply and demand shocks.
