CB&I,together with its partner, Chiyoda Corporation (Chiyoda), has been awarded a front end engineering design (FEED) services contract for a proposed LNG export project by Golden Pass Products, LLC (GPP). GPP is a joint venture between affiliates of Qatar Petroleum International and ExxonMobil.
The scope of work, which will be performed in conjunction with CB&I's partner Chiyoda, includes FEED services for the GPP LNG liquefaction and export facilities with a production capacity of 15.6 million tons of LNG per year (5.2 MTPA x 3 trains).
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. CB&I and Chiyoda successfully completed the pre-FEED and engineering necessary to support Golden Pass' formal application to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission earlier this year. CB&I performed the engineering and construction of the existing LNG import terminal, which became operational in 2010.
