Sempra taps Foster Wheeler for engineering work on Cameron LNG export site

04.27.2012  | 

Work scope for the Cameron LNG liquefaction site of Sempra Energy includes technical assistance for project development and execution of front-end engineering.


Foster Wheeler has been awarded an owner’s engineer contract for a new LNG liquefaction project to be located in Hackberry, Louisiana, by Cameron LNG, an affiliate of Sempra Energy.

The project is expected to export up to 12 million tpy of LNG.

The contract value for this project was not disclosed. An initial booking was included in Foster Wheeler’s fourth-quarter 2011 bookings, with the main releases of work expected to follow in 2012.

The scope of work includes technical assistance for project development, the execution of front-end engineering to support permit applications to the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, development of technical specifications and invitation to bid packages for engineering, procurement and construction activities, and technical reviews, according to the company.

The work will also include integration with existing Cameron LNG facilities and may include additional scopes of work as the project develops.

“We are pleased that Cameron LNG has selected Foster Wheeler to fulfill the role of owner’s engineer up to the EPC phase of the project,” said Umberto della Sala, chief operating officer of Foster Wheeler.

“With our proven track record of executing safe, successful LNG liquefaction projects, we are well positioned to respond to opportunities provided by the drive to monetize gas resources in the US market,” he added.

I imagine this will reduce LNG imports to the East Coast from North Africa and Far East.

Although nice piece of work for FW, and nice that companies plan to monitize our natural gas resources, it would be better for the US, over all, if the projects would convert the natural gas to transportable fuels. This would decrease our reliance on unreliable foreign sources and upgrade the BTU content to a higher dollar value.

A little elaboration of basic design ( Front End Engineering) just giving glimpse of process used to receive gas and liquifaction steps with it's advantage compared to other compatitors would have been of help to FW in attracting more producers and their technical team / experts. This is an opinion of a tecnical person like me having some grasp on LNG technology and business. Thanks.
