James Lindsay, Pointe’s co-founder, said: “We are pleased to have KBR, a global EPC LNG contractor, as a partner, and this strategic agreement is an important step in the development of our project. We are thrilled about the opportunity to add KBR’s decades of LNG experience on board as we bring Pointe LNG to market.”
Tom Burgess, the company's co-founder, added: “Selecting KBR to provide the full engineering design on FERC FEED, Full FEED and a lump sum EPC turnkey bid package assures that Pointe LNG will complete the FERC filing process on time and ensures the quality design needed.”
Farhan Mujib, KBR President, Hydrocarbons Delivery Solutions, said: “KBR is pleased to be working with Pointe LNG in this key role and contribute to this important development in Louisiana.
“KBR’s selection for this work demonstrates Pointe LNG's confidence in KBR’s LNG project experience, leverages our US construction capability and provides opportunity for a full service EPC contract at a later date.
Assuming that various approvals and contingencies are satisfied, including the completion of the FERC pre-filing process, which is expected to take place by December this year, and Pointe LNG’s receipt of financing and all necessary permits and approvals, construction is expected to commence in 1Q21. Initial operations are then expected to start in 1Q25.
