Golden Pass LNG awards FEED contract to CB&I, Chiyoda for export plant

CB&I and partner Chiyoda were awarded the front-end engineering design (FEED) services contract for a proposed LNG export project by Golden Pass Products (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 tpy of LNG (5.2 million tpy 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, 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 also performed the engineering and construction of the existing LNG import terminal, which became operational in 2010.

"This award builds on CB&I and Chiyoda's involvement in many of the major LNG projects taking place around the world," said Patrick K. Mullen, president of CB&I's engineering, construction and maintenance operating group.

"We look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Qatar Petroleum International and ExxonMobil, which expands on the original development of the Golden Pass Terminal," he added.
