Technip awarded FEED for LNG liquefaction project in the United States
PARIS -- Technip was awarded by Trunkline LNG Export the front end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the potential expansion of the existing LNG import terminal located in Lake Charles, Louisiana.
The potential expansion project includes a LNG liquefaction plant, with a total export capacity of up to 15 MMtpy, so that a portion of the vast additional supplies of natural gas produced from shale gas fields across the United States can be exported to international markets. The total liquefaction capacity could be achieved through up to three identical trains, with associated utilities and offsite facilities as well as the re-use of the existing LNG offloading, storage and marine facilities. Air Products has been selected to supply its C3MR liquefaction process technology for this FEED study.
Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas will execute the contract with the support from the Group’s center in Paris, France. It is scheduled for completion during the first half of 2014.
