KBR Inc. announced today that it has been awarded a contract by Gulf LNG Liquefaction Company, LLC (GLLC), an affiliate of Gulf LNG Energy, LLC (GLE). Under the terms of the contract, KBR will provide Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) front end engineering and design (FEED) studies and FERC report pre-filing services to support the addition of ten million tpa liquefaction and export capabilities to GLE’s LNG import terminal, Gulf LNG Terminal.
Expected revenue from the contract will be included in the second quarter 2014 backlog of unfilled orders for the Gas Monetization segment. The contract value was not disclosed.
KBR will perform FERC FEED engineering for two 5 million tpa LNG trains and associated facilities based on KBR’s proven reference design using APCI C3MR Technology. Additionally, KBR will provide the technical documentation required by the FERC during the pre-filing process.
The LNG facilities will liquefy domestic gas transported via pipeline, store the LNG in the terminal’s existing LNG storage tanks, and load it into LNG vessels via the terminal’s existing marine jetty. The terminal will retain its current bi-directional functions of receiving, storing, regasifying and delivering natural gas into the interstate pipeline system.
Ivor Harrington, the KBR Gas Monetization Group President, said: “We are excited to expand our work with Gulf LNG Liquefaction Company and to contribute to this important development in Mississippi. This contract award demonstrates the continued confidence in KBR’s LNG project experience and leverages our US construction capability and provides opportunity for a full service engineering procurement and construction (EPC) contract at a later date."
