CB&I WINS FEED FOR QPI-LED TEXAS LNG FACILITY
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.
