Clough Ltd has confirmed that its US-based LNG consulting and advisory subsidiary, CH·IV, has been awarded the owner’s engineer contract for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phase of the Magnolia LNG Project in Lake Charles, Louisiana, US.
Under the 18 month contract, CH·IV will provide technical and project execution support personnel to the Magnolia LNG project, overseeing EPC contractor KSJV, as the LNG project moves through detailed design, construction, commissioning and start-up.
Magnolia LNG is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Liquefied Natural Gas Ltd (LNG Ltd). Its LNG project is an 8 million tpy mid-scale LNG facility. The first of the four planned, 2 million tpy trains is expected to export first LNG in 4Q18.
CH·IV President, Jeff Beale, said: “CH·IV assisted Magnolia LNG through FERC and permitting approvals and we are delighted to see this successful relationship continue through the owners engineer award […] This project will realise the synergies of the Clough and CH·IV relationship with CH·IV providing high value consultancy and engineering expertise, supported by Clough's global oil and gas engineering capability.”
Clough’s Executive Vice President of Global Products and Services, Thomas Dockray, added: “This award recognises CH·IV’s capabilities and experience in the global oil and gas market. CH·IV has specialist LNG knowledge supported by a results driven culture focused on delivering success for their clients […] This groundbreaking project makes use of CH·IV’s high-value LNG owner’s engineering, advisory and consultancy services across the entire asset lifecycle and represents another important step in establishing CH·IV as the partner of choice for LNG operating companies.”
CH·IV will commence work on the contract immediately, with a scheduled completion date of around November 2016.
