According to the statement, the facility will be capable of being expanded to 10 million tpy, and will promote the development of the Vaca Muerta Shale field in the Neuquen region of Argentina. Work is set to begin immediately.
McDermott claims that the scope of work is a continuation of a previous conceptual study developed for the Argentinian export facility in 2018.
Mark Coscio, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for North, Central and South America, said: “The award of this pre-FEED project is a testimony of McDermott's technical expertise in LNG and our successful partnership with YPF over the years.
“Our experience as the EPC contractor for the Peru LNG Facility in which YPF was involved – combined with McDermott’s modularisation capabilities – were key factors that made us uniquely qualified to win and execute this contract.”
