CB&I and part­ner Chiy­oda Cor­po­ra­tion have been awarded a front-end en­gi­neer­ing de­sign (FEED) ser­vices con­tract for a pro­posed LNG ex­port project near the Texas coast.

The project, which is part of one of the world's largest LNG fa­cil­i­ties, is be­ing run by Golden Pass Prod­ucts (GPP), a joint ven­ture be­tween af­fil­i­ates of Qatar Pe­tro­leum In­ter­na­tional (QPI) and ExxonMo­bil and Cono­coPhillips, where QPI holds a 70% stake fol­lowed by Exxon's 17.6% and Cono­coPhillips' 12.4%.

The FEED will be done on the three-train 15.6 mil­lion-tonnes-per-an­num (mtpa) GPP LNG liq­ue­fac­tion ex­port fa­cil­ity – each train will be ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing 5.2 mtpa.

The new fa­cil­ity will be co-lo­cated at the site of the ex­ist­ing LNG im­port ter­mi­nal owned and op­er­ated by Golden Pass LNG Ter­mi­nal LLC, an af­fil­i­ate of GPP. The Golden Pass LNG Ter­mi­nal com­mis­sioned its fa­cil­i­ties in 2010 by re­ceiv­ing its first ever LNG cargo from Qatar.

CB&I and Chiy­oda had ear­lier this year com­pleted the pre-FEED and en­gi­neer­ing nec­es­sary to support Golden Pass' for­mal ap­pli­ca­tion to the Fed­eral En­ergy Reg­u­la­tory Com­mis­sion. CB&I per­formed the en­gi­neer­ing and con­struc­tion of the ex­ist­ing LNG im­port ter­mi­nal, which be­came op­er­a­tional in 2010.
