Technip wins FEED for LNG liquefaction project

Trunkline LNG Export, LLC has awarded Technip a front-end engineering and design (FEED) contract for the potential expansion of the existing liquefied natural gas (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 approximately 15 million tonnes per annum, so that a portion of the vast additional supplies of natural gas produced from shale gas fields across the U.S. 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.

This project is scheduled for completion during the first half of 2014.
“Adding liquefaction capabilities to the existing infrastructure would provide the option of switching from regasification to liquefaction, depending on the world market for LNG,” said Technip’s Senior Vice President, North America Region, David Dickson. “This award constitutes the first LNG liquefaction FEED project for Technip in the U.S.”
