Bechtel awarded FEED work for Mozambique LNG

01.18.2013  | 

Bechtel is developing a design for a multi-train liquefaction plant with a nominal train capacity of 5 million tpy of LNG, and an overall LNG park plan that will allow for future expansion of the facility to approximately 50 million tpy. First commercial LNG sales from the facility are planned for 2018.

Bechtel has been selected by Anadarko Moçambique Area 1 to perform a front end engineering and design (FEED) for a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility, the companies said on Friday.

This is the first LNG project in the Republic of Mozambique.

“The Mozambique LNG FEED award builds on Bechtel’s extensive experience in LNG and in Africa, where we have worked for more than 50 years,” said Jack Futcher, president of Bechtel’s oil, gas and chemicals business unit.

“We are excited by the prospect of working with Anadarko and its partners to develop a world-class facility that will bring jobs and economic development to Mozambique.”

The FEED is for the initial phase of the onshore LNG facility that will be built in the Cabo Delgado province in the northeast portion of the country.

Bechtel is developing a design for a multi-train liquefaction plant with a nominal train capacity of 5 million tpy of LNG, and an overall LNG park plan that will allow for future expansion of the facility to approximately 50 million tpy.

First commercial LNG sales from the facility are planned for 2018.

Bechtel describes itself as a global leader in the LNG industry, having successfully delivered 28 LNG trains in nine countries, including Trinidad, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, and Australia.

In addition, through its global LNG collaboration with ConocoPhillips, Bechtel is currently building four LNG facilities in Australia and an export facility in the US.
