Bechtel has been selected by Louisiana LNG Energy, LLC to provide front-end engineering and design for a new midscale liquefaction facility and export terminal in Louisiana, south of New Orleans on the Mississippi River. The design will center on a modular approach, which shortens the construction schedule and accommodates future expansion.
"Bechtel brings world-class expertise in the engineering, design, and construction of LNG liquefaction projects coupled with leadership in modularization and Gulf Coast self-perform work," said Jim Lindsay, chief executive officer of Louisiana LNG Energy.
"This is an exciting project that will harness the region's energy potential," said Jack Futcher, president of Bechtel's Oil, Gas & Chemicals business unit. "We will apply our extensive project delivery experience to provide Louisiana LNG Energy the most efficient design for fast-track construction of the facility. We look forward to working with them."
